Previous encounters with this Latour have always come across as rather dry and austere, but there seemed to be a great wine lurking here and maybe time would be benevolent. Here is the first bottle (from my own cellar) that really was a joy and fulfilled my expectations. It has an exuberant nose of cedar, pencil lead, smoke and charcoal with far more definition that previously. The palate is fresh and lively, still a little austere and aloof and yet there is more expression and vigour. There is just a hint of greenness on the finish, but by then you do not care because this bottle is harmonious and surprisingly elegant on the finish. Bottles of perfect provenance such as this should offer joy. Wine Advocate 92
