We translate Lisa Perrotti-Brown's assessment for Robert Parker, because there is no waste: “The 2012 Latour is a blend of 90.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.6% Merlot and 0.2% Petit Verdot. Medium to deep maroon in color, the nose emerges slowly and measured with notions of canned Morello cherries, baked blackcurrants and blackberry compote, giving way to hints of pencil shavings, smoke-free cigars, five Chinese spices and sandalwood, in addition to very subtle hints of cardamom and eucalyptus. Medium bodied, the palate offers preserves of black and red fruits that cover the mouth with a firm frame of grainy texture and fantastic freshness, ending with a veritable fireworks display of lingering spices and minerals. This is a more understated and elegant Latour vintage that may not have the "iron fist in a velvet glove" power of the best vintages, but nonetheless shows off its superior terroir and savoir faire behind the scenes with an impressive style. Drinking well right now, with accessible and adequately rounded tannins, the tertiary characters are just beginning to add some more cerebral elements to the tantalizing primary black fruit compote. But, if you're looking to drink it in its entirety, an extravagant swing, give it another 5-10 years in the bottle and drink it for the next 20-25 years. ” RP96 +
