CHÂTEAU LATOUR 1982 (3) WA 100
Lot 270 Details

Pauillac. 1er Cru Classé
u. 1 x vts. 1 x ts. 1 x hs. 1 x scraped label. 1 x scuffed label. 1 x wrinkled label

This vintage has always tasted great, even in its youth, and revealed a precociousness that one does not associate with this Chateau. However, the 1982 is still evolving at a glacial pace. The concentration remains remarkable, and the wine is a full-bodied, exuberant, rich, classic Pauillac in its aromatic and flavor profiles. It’s just juiced up (similar to an athlete on steroids) and is all the better for it. This remarkable effort will last as long as the 1982 Mouton, but it has always been more approachable and decadently fruity. Drink it now, in 20 years, and in 50 years! Don’t miss it if you are a wine lover. June 2009 Drink: 2009-2059 WA 100
