An exploration of wine

154. Château Latour, Les Forts de Latour Pauillac, 1975

Very pleasant way of celebrating my 29th birthday – completing the set of Latour 1975s! Found this on eBay, and a pretty good piece of VFM. Deep garnet colour gently fading to brick at the rim but not apparently “old”, retaining intensity. A bouquet led by cigar-box, but opening into more toasty, leathery aromas and some remaining fruit, I think. Still structured, with acidity mainly, and some pleasant length. A bit “hollow” on the mid-palate perhaps, which might reflect the 2nd wine, rather than Grand.
