Chateau Latour , 1994

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

This is an interesting as well as great vintage for Latour. As indicated in my barrel tasting report, Latour's 1994 possesses an atypically high percentage of Merlot (27%) in the final blend. Because of this, the wine appears to have a sweeter, more fleshy texture than is typical for a young Latour, but do not make the mistake of thinking this will be a commercially-styled, easy to drink wine. It exhibits an opaque dark ruby/purple color, and a backward, intense textbook nose of walnut and cassis scents complemented by smoky pain grille notes that build in the glass. This full-bodied, powerful, layered Latour reveals high tannin, but no bitterness or astringency.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild , 1994

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 91 Points - Robert Parker ***

The 1994 appears to be the finest Mouton-Rothschild made following the 1986 and before the 1995's conception. The wine exhibits a dense, saturated purple color, followed by a classic Mouton nose of sweet black fruits intermingled with smoke, pain grillee, spice, and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, with outstanding concentration, a layered feel, plenty of tannin, and rich, concentrated fruit, this wine is similar to the fine 1988. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025. By the way, the Dutch artist, Appel, has created a gorgeous label for the 1994. Although Mouton-Rothschild can be among the most inconsistent first-growths,

Delaforce Vintage Port, 1994

Vintage Port

Youthful in appearance, medium bright ruby red tapering to a strawberry rim. Initially the nose is rather raw and stalky but this clears up in the decanter, lovely nuance, black cherries and spices, dark chocolate, hint of cherry stones, good depth; lively palate, elegant rather than concentrated but with a lovely stuffing of ripe and glossy, juicy cherry fruit, medium sweet, bright acidity, not very tannic but with more grip than many other 1994 vintage ports. Complete finish, lifted flavours of strawberry and vanilla, very good length, subtle alcoholic kick.
