International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 102

Full red-ruby. High-pitched aromas of red- and blackcurrant, minerals and leather. Wonderfully harmonious in the mouth, with compelling sweetness of fruit but also superb grip. A lush, rich wine that already displays impressive inner-mouth perfume. Finishes with broad, essentially gentle tannins. Doesn't quite possess the grip or thrust of the '01, but this is wine-of-the-vintage material.

Medicinal and sinewy on the nose. Exciting and vibrant. Deep-flavoured. Long but the tannins are still very evident (though in this case there seems to be enough fruit to stand up to them). Ambitious - needs quite a bit of time yet.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 140

Readers looking for a modern day version of Latour's magnificent 1962 or 1971 should check out the sensational 1999 Latour. It is a big, concentrated offering, exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color, and a classic nose of minerals, black currants, leather, and vanilla. The wine is long, ripe, and medium-bodied, with high levels of sweet tannin. This surprisingly full, concentrated 1999 should be drinkable in 5-6 years; it will last for three decades.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Big, yet racy '99. Shows blackberry aromas, with a hint of spice, and is full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit, firm tannins and a dark chocolate and coffee aftertaste. Wonderful texture. Goes on and on. 13,330 cases made.

Dense ruby purple-colored, with hig degree of acidity and tanin Long and full-bodied. This Latour needs to be decantered for minimum of 2 hours and then 2 hours in the glass. At first the wine was a major disappointment with its high acidity, but after time it was superb. Save till 2015 and try again. This could be a great Latour.

A smorgasbord of sweetly earthy elements began to settle into a poetic maturity, right on cue. Dried mushrooms, truffles, damp earth, and cracked peppercorns brought my toes to a tingle. While the palate brought forth elements that evoked dried meats, heady black chocolate, blueberries and cr?me de cassis that were so suave and rich, and oh so long. I couldn'thelp but think of a plump, low acid Brunello for comparison sake (coming from me, that is a quintessential complement!). Beginning it?s bottle bouquet period of maturity w/ style and grace, but aint goin? anywhere soon!
