Eric Pfanner, The New York Times:
In some other wine regions, like Champagne … producers keep the wine in their cellars until it is mature — so why not Bordeaux.
So, just like French bubbly, 2012 Château Latour is playing hard-to-get:
Latour, one of the five so-called first growths of Bordeaux — the top wines in an official classification that dates back to 1855 — is coveted like few other wines.
These are more than just wines. They are big business investments, too.
Don’t want to wait for Latour? Go for a Napa, Calif., cabernet.
World class. Without international waiting games.
