- Tasting Notes
Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2014 Le Pauillac de Château Latour leaps from the glass with raspberry pie, kirsch and blackberry preserves scents followed by more serious notions of cigar box, tilled soil, fallen leaves and blackcurrant pastilles. Medium-bodied, refreshing and mineral laced, with a chewy frame, it has plenty of savory layers and an herbal lift on the finish. The blend here is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot.

The 2014 Pauillac de Château Latour is a refined and polished wine that expresses the gracious, mid-weight style of the year nicely. Sweet tobacco, cedar, mint, earthiness and wild cherries add aromatic dimension. The 2014 is just starting to enter the early plateau of its optimal drinking window. I would prefer to drink it over the next 7-10 years. In 2014, the Pauillac is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot.

A beautiful balance and savory character to the third wine of Mouton. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Mostly cabernet and merlot but the 7% petit verdot gives something extra.

Offers a core of pure cassis and blackberry fruit, with mouthwatering streaks of graphite and anise. Racy-edged, featuring ample grip buried through the finish. Reveals a violet echo for good measure. Textbook. Best from 2018 through 2030. 9,022 cases made.
