Wine Advocate Review:
In 1964, as in 1966 and 1967, Latour was the best wine in the Medoc. The 1964 is drinking beautifully now, but it should hold for at least another decade. The bouquet is powerful, spicy, and filled with aromas of minerals, black fruits, and licorice. Rich, round, supple, generous flavors show excellent concentration. Soft tannins and a silky, rich, very long finish make this a sumptuous, even opulent Latour. -Robert Parker

Other Notes:
This is an utterly delicious wine! A languid, almost sedate bouquet whose charms creep up on you, with macerated black cherries, clear honey, blackcurrant wine gums, glycerol and a touch of rose petal, strafed with breathtaking delineation, the palate is full-bodied, exuding a sense of controlled opulence. Cashmere tannins, quite glossy and plush with immense purity and class. Rounded towards the finish with sweet black cherries mixed with summer fruits, great tension and poise. I doubt I will ever encounter a finer example of this wine. Drink now-2020. Tasted June 2009. -Neal Martin, Wine Journal
