Tasting Notes: 2001 Forts de Latour, Robert Parker 90:  “Increasingly one of Bordeaux’s finest second wines, the lush 2001 Forts de Latour exhibits a personality similar to its bigger sibling. Its deep ruby/plum color is accompanied by aromas of smoke, earth, black currants, and notions of walnuts as well as spice box. Round and generous.” (RP)  (6/2004)
