Ratings & Tasting notes:

93 points Burghound A stunning nose that offer simply wonderful complexity leads to racy, pure, intense and mineral-laden flavors of real length. This is an elegant wine that will require many years to come together completely even from a regular 750 ml bottle. An extremely pretty wine and one of Latour’s best recent efforts with this wine. Mostly consistent notes, including the 2016 magnum, though I should point out that another magnum tasted in 2008 seemed a bit thin on the mid-palate and while the essential character remained the same, it didn’t have the same buffering material that the best examples do.  (10/2016)

91 points Wine Spectator Clean and elegant, this is refined on the nose, with a stone, spice, mocha, chocolate and cream character. Quite woodsy on the palate, turning chewy and a bit rough, but with plenty of tropical and other ripe flavors.  (5/1999)
