Dark garnet with an amber edge the 1959 Latour reveals a touch of volatile acidity in the nose along with aromas of melted caramel tobacco and jammy red and black fruits. As the wine sat in the glass notes of minerals coffee spice and underbrush emerged. There is still copious tannin in the finish (I am not sure it will ever be fully resolved) but this sumptuous complex fragrant super-rich Latour cuts a broad swath across the palate. Fully mature it is best consumed over the next decade.

Superb but I have had an even better bottle of this wine; usually it's worth two points more. Equal in quality to the perfect 1961.

Equal in quality to the perfect 1961. Thick and rich with berry cherry and tobacco character it shows layers of ripe fruit and velvety tannins that go on and on at the finish. Exciting wine.--Latour vertical. Drink now. -JS
