The brilliant second wine, the 2006 Les Forts de Latour, a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, possesses a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful bouquet of asphalt, cassis, cedar, truffles, and earth, and a full-bodied, dense, beautiful style that is similar to a 1996 Pauillac. It will age effortlessly for 15 years. Latour-s brilliant manager, Frederic Engerer, has purchased 15 hectares of old vine Grenache and Syrah in the Cotes du Rhone region, the Drome, at a cool-climate elevation. I can-t wait to see the first vintage from this Cotes du Rhone project.

Winespectator / James Suckling (89)

Blackberry and violet aromas, with a hint of black licorice. Medium- to full-bodied, with slightly chewy tannins and a medium finish. A little hollow midpalate.
