Product Description

RP100 "One of the three or four very greatest wines of the vintage, the 1982 Latour delivers aromas of dark berry fruit, rich cigar wrapper, loamy soil, walnuts and smoke. Full-bodied, broad and layered, it's deep, seamless and immensely concentrated, its fleshy core framed by sweet, powdery tannins, concluding with a long, expansive finish. A monument to the greatness of Bordeaux, it is one wine that's worthy of all the praise that has been lavished on it over the years." WK for WA Dec 2022

LP100 "The 1982 Latour is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot. It emerges from the glass with a perfumed mushroom cloud of fruit cake, mint tea, dried mulberries, kirsch, and fallen leaves notes, followed by fragrant underlying scents of incense, wood smoke, dried roses, and rusty nails. The medium-bodied palate is mind-blowingly multilayered, cushioning the fruit in soft, silt-like tannins, lifted by just enough freshness, finishing with long-lingering mineral and exotic spices notes. Breath-taking." LPB for TWI Mar 2024

VM100 "The 1982 Latour has always been a quintessential Bordeaux and a quintessential Latour. This is just as composed and detailed as the finest bottles that I have encountered, bridled with captivating blackberry, graphite and cedar aromas that are brilliantly focused. Perhaps it is not quite as showy as it was a few years ago, yet it is still regal and as blue-blooded as they come. The palate is ineffably graceful and chiselled down to the finest detail. One bottle at the International Business and Wine dinner is perhaps more understated than previous examples, but another in Hong Kong delivers such tension and precision that you can only kowtow before it. The 1982 is a masterful, regal Latour and probably now the finest Left Bank exponent of this vintage. Tasted at the International Business & Wine Latour dinner at Ten Trinity and at the Latour dinner in Hong Kong." NM for VM Jul 2018
