Robert Parker who has been deemed as the most influential critic of the French wine world today has rated this Latour 1998 a staggering 91 points out of a possible 100 stating that:
“The 98 is a refined, elegant offering with a dark red ruby colour, sweet cassis fruit, surprisingly soft tannin and a good finish. There is firmness and muscle in the background, it is very pure. With the vineyard’s mineral/black fruit character presented in a medium-weight format. Anticipated maturity between 2007 and 2025.”
Here Parker is saying that the wine is ready to be consumed for optimal tasting and this could be a good short term investment for possible results to be seen over the next two to three years.
