Jancis Robinson | Rating: 18Magnum.ÿFor me, the star of the evening. So complete, so much at the height of its powers, so dense yet fresh.I couldn't help thinking of that ad for menthol cigarettes - 'pure as mountain stream' was the slogan, wasn't it? Sweet and richly flattering without being remotely heavy. It's possible that in bottle sizes this wine is much more developed.Author: Jancis Robinson
Wine Spectator | Rating: 87Mature now, this silky wine offers raisin, tobacco, mineral and slightly gamy flavors, and turns a bit dry on the finish. A good effort for the vintage, but needs drinking now.--Latour vertical.Author: Thomas Matthews
Bordeaux Book(1998) | Rating: 88Unquestionably the best wine produced in the Medoc in 1967, the Latour has dark ruby color with some browning at the edges, a medium- to full-bodied feel, plenty of black currant fruit, and some light, soft tannins still present. Head and shoulders above the other first-growths, this wine has the classic Latour bouquet of black walnuts, black currants, mineral scents, and cedarwood.Author: Robert Parker

Self | Rating: 89I love to open bottles of 1967 Bordeaux for people who only buy the |best| vintages. 1967 was a mediocre year for dry Bordeaux. Still, well-selected 67s (Latour, Petrus, and Haut Brion for example) remain still amazingly well preserved and are quite enjoyable to consume. This Latour is fully mature but far from dead. Plenty of cedar, cassis, and black fruit aromas. Smooth and silky on the palate with excellent length.Author: Daniel B
