"Tasted blind at the 1985 Bordeaux horizontal, the 1985 Château Latour put in a decent performance, although it is, and never has been, a great Latour. It has a respectable nose of black, earthy fruit, tinged with brine and leather. It does not exactly convince you of its pedigree. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, perhaps more backward than previous examples with a slightly grainy texture. What it is missing is substance, grip and conviction, a Latour content to deliver the minimum instead of reaching for the stars. Here, it is outflanked by both 1985s from Lynch Bages and Haut-Brion. Tasted July 2015." - Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Jul 28, 2016)
