Neal Martin, Vinous (mrt 2023) – "The 2017 Les Forts de Latour conveys airiness on the nose, reflecting the relatively lightest vintage in recent years. Graphite and sous-bois infuse black fruit, offering a slightly welcome herbaceous/undergrowth tincture. The palate is very well-balanced and will appeal to those seeking a sleeker, lighter style of Pauillac. Not lean by any account, but this Les Fort de Latour is understated, with appealing black pepper and tobacco notes emerging on the finish. Fine." 92.

Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux (feb 2023) – "A floral curl on the first nose, this is an attractive and sappy Forts de Latour, with a fine, elegant, almost chalky aspect to the tannins. Thoroughly charming raspberry and blackberry fruit, fresh earth, cocoa power and slate, with a mouthwatering finish. An elegant feel to this, more evolved than in bigger vintages at the six year stage although still with clear architecture to the tannins. As you sit with it you start to realise just how carefully it is gripping on through the palate, and how fine a wine it is. As with many in Pauillac, Latour found the September rains of 2017 challenging, and two of the plots normally used for the main estate wine are in Forts this year. 6.7% press wine. Hélène Genin techincal director, harvest September 11 to October 4." 93.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent (dec 2022) – "The 2017 Les Forts de Latour is composed of 65.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot, and 0.8% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet in color, it comes galloping out with bold notions of warm cassis, blackberry pie, and dried roses, plus suggestions of crushed rocks, wild sage, and underbrush. The medium-bodied palate is completely filled with delicate waves of bright, refreshing black and red berry layers, supported by super-ripe, super-fine tannins, finishing long and perfumed. This is stunning!" 95.

Jonathan Choukroun Chicheportiche, VertdeVin (sep 2022) – "The nose is elegant, fruity, nicely defined and offers depth, energy and a lovely racy, finely powdered texture. There are notes of crunchy blackcurrant, black cherry and slightly liquorice with hints of crushed wild strawberry, crushed red currant and subtle hints of blueberry, lily, iodine and spice. The palate is fruity and offers juiciness, gourmandise, a nice freshness/energy as well as a tangy frame. On the palate this wine expresses juicy/pulpy cherry, crunchy Morello cherry and more slightly lily, blueberry notes combined with hints of wild berries, crunchy berries as well as subtle hints of rose, iodine gravel and a hint of varietal/good bitterness. The tannins are supple, racy and saline/sappy. Good length. A very discreet, almost chocolatey quality on the finish." 93.
