Ch Latour 1985
As one of the First Growths in Bordeaux, Latour has a very large reputation to uphold. The Tour, or tower, was built in 1452. Since then, the 1899 is perhaps its greatest known 'modern' vintage. With egg sized stones for soil, the Chateau has to sharpen the plow blades twice a day. Planted in Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, it produces 18,000 to 25,000 cases per year from its 146 acres. This 1985 has an aggregated critic score of 92/100. The cork is very sound and the fill is excellent. One bottle for sale.
