Wine Spectator Score: 92/100
A sleek and racy wine. Ruby-amber color. Aromas of cedar, cigar box,tobacco, mint and mushrooms, with hints of red fruits, follow though to a medium body with fine tannins and a long, silky finish.

Wine Advocate Score: 90/100
Medium garnet-colored with moderate amber at the edge, the 1978 Latour offers a spicy, saddle leather, tobacco, dried herb, earthy nose with sweet fruit trying to poke through. Interestingly, new oak also makes an appearance in the flavors. Medium-bodied, elegant, and fragrant. (RP)

Vinous Score: 90/100
The 1978 Latour, served from ex-château double magnums, is a wine that I have encountered several times over the years. Of course, provenance plays its part, likewise the large format, yet I remain unconvinced that this is a top-flight Latour. At least the bouquet is fresh with cedar and pencil lead aromas, commendably detailed considering the era in which it was born. The palate is fully mature, with firm, almost obdurate tannin. The 1978 cries out “old school Pauillac,” with a touch of brine emerging towards the finish that has a distinct rustic edge. It tries to impress more than confer enjoyment upon the drinker.
