88 Points Robert Parker
I have always felt this wine had the potential to be as good as the 1971, but in this tasting it did not perform as well as I had hoped. It exhibits an earthy, tree bark-scented nose, with a vague, undefined black fruit character in the background. Medium-bodied and surprisingly light for a Latour, the flavors possess huge tannins and crisp acids, without the balancing fatness and richness to suggest harmony will occur. This atypically coarse, unusual wine tastes awkward and disjointed. Last tasted, 7/93.
