JS94: Gorgeous nose of warm stones and dark fruits. Full body with a solid core of fruit and chewy tannins, and a long and intense finish. Best ever. Best after 2016.
JD93: Drinking beautifully, the 2009 Château Latour-Martillac boasts a dense purple/plum color as well as textbook Graves notes of smoky blackcurrants, tobacco, scorched earth, chocolate, and assorted meaty, spicy nuances. With medium to full-bodied richness, a fleshy, opulent texture, and a great finish, this is just now in its early stages of maturity and has another 20 years or more of prime drinking. It's beautifully done and I'd be happy with bottles in the cellar.
