Latour is a favourite of mine so I couldn’t resist to taste it at the FINE Wine Bar at Helsinki Airport when I saw the bottle being served by the glass. Unfortunately, I was to experience a slight disappointment, as the bottle was tiring. Enjoyable but not as good as it should be. Deep brown, somewhat hazy colour. Earthy nose of tar, ash and capsicum. Smooth tannin on the round, mid-weight palate. Medium long, quite one-dimensional at the end. I have to keep on searching a 100% bottle…

Finally, there is a great way of killing time at Helsinki Airport! In fact, it is reason to get to the airport half an hour before usual. The newly launched FINE Wine Bar is a unique concept, made in cooperation with the FINE-magazines. It is the place to taste the 1000 finest wines ever made, selected and published as a book by the Editorial Team of FINE.
In addition to tasting the normal wine bar selection, made by Juha Lihtonen of FINE, you can taste everyday a selection of fine and mature wines by the glass. The rare wines are sourced from the best cellars in the world by Pekka Nuikki. You can experience for example Petrus 1975, Chambertin 1961 and Vintage Port from 1864.
The FINE Wine Bar is open every day 06:00-20:00 at Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport.
