James Suckling 99 Punkte:

"A breathtaking combination of dried flowers and minerals, with dark fruits such as currants and blackberries. Full-bodied, with fabulous fruit concentration, yet its compacted. Velvety tannins. So much fruit and beauty. It's the quality of the tannins that are magic. It is the famous 1959 all over again. Amazing."

The Wine Advocate

"Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Latour is unashamedly youthful with bold blackcurrants, black cherries and warm plums notes plus nuances of cedar chest, aniseed, beef drippings, truffles and tapenade with a waft of tilled black soil. Full, concentrated and powerful in the mouth, it has a rock-solid frame of super ripe, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and wonderfully minerally. Just a baby—this needs time!"

"A blend of 91.3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8.7% Merlot with just under 14% natural alcohol, the 2009 Latour is basically a clone of the super 2003, only more structured and potentially more massive and long lived. An elixir of momentous proportions, it boasts a dense purple color as well as an extraordinarily flamboyant bouquet of black fruits, graphite, crushed rocks, subtle oak and a notion of wet steel. It hits the palate with a thundering concoction of thick, juicy blue and black fruits, lead pencil shavings and a chalky minerality. Full-bodied, but very fresh with a finish that lasts over a minute, this is one of the most remarkable young wines I have ever tasted. Will it last one-hundred years? No doubt about it. Can it be drunk in a decade? For sure. Proprietor Francois Pinault and his director, Frederic Engerer, have pulled out all the stops to produce one of the most monumental Latour’s ever made."

"The 2009 Latour has off the charts concentration in addition to the highest level of tannin ever measured at the estate. The final blend was somewhat unusual in that it consists of 91.3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8.7% Merlot, and clocked in at 13.7% alcohol (even higher than the 2003). Possibly a 100-year wine, it boasts an inky/black/purple color as well as an extraordinary perfume of super-intense blue and black fruits, graphite, and a liqueur of rocks-like minerality. Enormously full-bodied yet at the same time incredibly fresh, vibrant, and precise, it coats the mouth, and builds incrementally to skyscraper-like texture, and a whopping finish that lasts over a minute. This remarkable wine reveals a certain accessibility already, yet one senses that it will be even richer, more nuanced, and fuller by the time it is bottled in mid-2011. A monumental wine from a monumental vintage in the Medoc, this is our children´s children´s children´s elixir. (Tasted once.)"

Jane Anson:

"This is still closed, although a softening of the tannins is apparent. It has a gorgeous nose full of Pauillac power and finesse, with brambled fruits and touches of hedgerow as the Cabernet Sauvignon count heads upwards. The fresh core is clear from start to finish, giving that high-wire feeling that makes great Médocs so thrilling. There's a sense of drama to the cassis fruits, controlled but with impact and a sense of purpose, leading to a chewy finish. This is barely bedded down and has the shoulders and backbone to carry it for years. Don't approach it yet."

"Black red, huge concentration of black fruits and great purity, wonderfully fragrant nose with wild violets and lifted freshness, great length and perfect texture, totally Latour and all the fruit and vineyard will come out over the years. Drink 2018-45."

Jancis Robinson MW 19/20

"Drink 2022-2045; Very deep and glowing crimson. Very rich and sweet ink on the nose. Wonderfully gorgeous and lush on the front palate. Then lots of heat and richness. Amazing power of fruit on the mid palate gives way to extremely pronounced tannins. Transparent, mellifluous, spicy. Violets, says Engerer. Dry Taylors port? Latour backbone. Glossy ripe fruit. Candied violets. Maybe in 03 we went overboard. Enormous energy. Very impressive. 13.7%"

"You can sense the ripeness of the sunny vintage in the nose, with its joyous red berries, tobacco leaf, oyster shell, vanilla smoke, mint, cigar box and dark chocolate. Sensuous on the palate, with silky tannins and sweet, ripe, pure fruits, the wine is all power, grace, symmetry and elegance. This is a sexy vintage of Latour that you can really feel, as the wine rests and expands on your palate. Yes this is young. So if you are going to open a bottle, give it 2-3 hours of air, or wait another decade. This is one of the memorable tasting experiences that was impossible to spit."

"Logo sur le bouchon : AL. Couleur sombre, intense, belle et légèrement évoluée. Nez intense, au fruité mûr et suave. Nuances profondes, complexes et nobles. Très distingué. Minutieux à l’attaque, suave au développement, très aromatique, au toucher gras et complexe entre le milieu et la finale, le vin s’achève profond, particulièrement savoureux et noble dans toutes ses sensations. C’est superbe. Attendre encore un peu."

"Logo sur le bouchon : AL. Couleur sombre, intense, belle et encore jeune. Grand nez intense, fin, fruité, subtil, complexe et surtout très précis. Minutieux dés l’entrée en bouche, fondant et juteux, le vin se développe riche en milieu de bouche. Il s’achève long, sèveux et noble dans son toucher, son grain et ses arômes. Superbe !"

"A big, powerful wine that sums up the richness of the vintage. It is densely fruity, spicy with an enormous black plum and berry fruit character to go with the acidity. It's concentrated while still showing such wonderfully pure fruit. The aging potential is immense."

René Gabriel's BDX Total

"91,3 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 8,7 % Merlot, also ein Latour ohne Cabernet Franc und Petit Verdot! 38,3 % der Produktion wurde für den Grand Vin ausgewählt. Sattes, dichtes Purpur-Granat mit lila Reflexen. Klares, verhaltenes, feines statt mächtiges Bouquet, zuerst fein milchig, dann rahmig, dann sehr reife Brombeeren, parfümiertes Cassis, feinste Edelhölzer und eine besonders zarte Zedernholznote, die sonst eher dem Ducru vorbehalten ist. Perfekter, stilsicherer Gaumen, alles ist an seinem Ort, der Wein ist völlig auf die Reife des Cabernets ausgerichtet, königliche Adstringenz, ein zarter Hauch Karamell. Zweifellos ein ganz grosser Latour, aber irgendwie vermisse ich die brachiale Genialität von früher. Kommt, bei beginnender Reife, der Trüffel noch? Die Tiefe des Terroirs? Die dunklen Steinpilze und frisch gehackten Kräuter? Die Minze? Wird es ein Latour wie früher? Oder zollt man hier der Perfektion des heutigen, jedes Detail betrachtenden «Quality-Managements» Tribut? Die Zeit wird es erweisen – auch wenn nur Wenige zu Zeugen werden dürften, denn dieser Latour wird nicht nur teuer, sondern so richtig extrem teuer."

"This is absolutely fabulous. I love the complex aromas of ripe fruit and fresh flowers that turn to mineral and raspberry, along with tannins on the finish. This changes all the time. Full-bodied and dense, but so beautiful and long. -J.S."

Neal Martin 99 Punkte:

"The 2009 Latour is endowed with a simply magnificent nose with intense blackberry and cassis fruit laced with minerals and graphite, extremely focused to the point of overwhelming the sense. Wow. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, multilayered black fruit infused with crushed stone and a hint of white pepper, though it clams up towards the finish as if to say, not yet. Outstanding. This is Latour firing on all cylinders."
