Les Forts de Latour 2013

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  452193

An attractive wine, the 2013 Les Forts de Latour has turned out beautifully, even if it is a bit more angular than it was en primeur. Bright acids and sharp tannins give certain edginess that suggest the Forts de Latour might need more time, but then again, the 2013 probably doesn't have the stuffing to support more than medium term aging. Hints of sweet spice, herbs, leather, tobacco, grilled herbs, and menthol accent the nuanced finish. All in all, this is a very pretty 2013. The blend is 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Drinking window: 2020-2033. Score - 91. (Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, April 2019)
