Some call Les Forts the second wine of Latour but in truth it is far more than that – it is a terroir-specific wine with dedicated vineyards and quality to rival most grands vins. Very dense, tight, closed on the nose. Vigorous swirling releases some fine blackcurrant notes. Lovely supple texture, still structured, but with seamless style. Quite voluptuous in style, pretty rather than powerful, with ripe blackcurrant, touch of mint and black tea, and a bright, vibrant finish. (63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot.)
Very fruity and lifted with bright and floral aromas and flavors. Full and velvety. Gorgeous finish. Very pure and focused. Pretty Les Forts.
They are picking these grapes earlier nowadays.
Dark crimson. Very sumptuous nose. Massive sweetness on the front palate and then Pauillac stoniness. A real charmer. Lots of vigour and punch. Complete and very dry. Needs lots of time.
