Wine Spectator : Great scores for Latour Chambertin!
From Wine Spectator Insider - February 3rd, 2010:
Chambertin Cuvée Héritiers Latour 2007: 93 points
An intense red, powerful and elegant at once, exhibiting black cherry, chocolate, licorice and mineral flavors. This just keeps building on the palate and won't be denied, culminating in a long, chewy, licorice-tinged finish. Best from 2014 through 2030.—B.S.

Mazis-Chambertin 2007: 93 points
Finesse and inner strength mark this intense red, which is packed with cherry, raspberry, floral and mineral flavors, with accents of tobacco and spice. There's a long, palate-saturating finish. Best from 2014 through 2027.—B.S.

Latricières-Chambertin 2007: 91 points
Shows herbal and waxy flavors more than pure fruit, with prominent tannins that end up dry and slightly astringent on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2023.—B.S.

Charmes-Chambertin 2007: 92 points
This is all about the silky texture and the bright structure, with finely meshed tannins. The fruit seems submerged today, just a little shy, but it's sweet and lingers on the finish, so be patient. Best from 2013 through 2023.—B.S.

Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaut St.-Jacques 2007: 92 points
This starts out with a pure cherry flavor and a silky texture, firming up and revealing raspberry and mineral elements that make it both complex and appealing. The finish is long and juicy. Best from 2011 through 2019.—B.S.
