Chateau Clos De Latour 2002 wine review by (PB)
This Grand Vin De Bordeaux has been reviewed before by me and was a good enough value that I picked up several other bottles. This is the last of the bunch.
It is a very cherry red color with a slightly herbal bouquet and a pronounced sour-cherry nose.
In the mouth it is tannic initially and a bit tart and closed. It needs some air!
With a few minutes, everything that was out of whack is balanced and mellow. There is a little tart raspberry with a slightly sweeter palate than I remembered and a steely finish. this wine is peaked NOW so drink it up if any laying around. This wine will run you about $10 and is a nice value for the money. Raise a glass!
