2006-Pauillac de Chateau Latour
“Paw-yuck duh Shutoe Luh-tour”
This is a rare “third label” release by the legendary First Growth estate, Chateau Latour. Its second label is called Les Forts de Latour and is made up from barrels not selected for the master blend. The third label consists of vineyards not deemed prime or old enough for the top standards of the prestige label. While not as powerful as big relatives, it costs just a fraction with much of the muscular quality of the others. A classic Prime Rib, Beef Wellington, lamb chop or hearty stew complement after 1.5 hours of decanting.
