Readers looking for a modern day version of Latour's magnificent 1962 or 1971 should check out the sensational 1999 Latour. It is a big concentrated offering exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color and a classic nose of minerals black currants leather and vanilla. The wine is long ripe and medium-bodied with high levels of sweet tannin. This surprisingly full concentrated 1999 should be drinkable in 5-6 years; it will last for three decades.

Full-bodied and very elegant featuring a solid core of ultrafine tannins and a long long finish. So much finesse here. Still tight needing time in the bottle to open. No longer big this is in just the right proportions for the vintage.-'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Best after 2012. 13330 cases made. -JS

Wonderfully harmonious in the mouth with compelling sweetness of fruit but also superb grip. A lush rich wine that already displays impressive inner-mouth perfume. Finishes with broad essentially gentle tannins. Doesn't quite possess the grip or thrust of the '01 but this is wine-of-the-vintage material.
