Chateau Latour

Chateau LatourThe latour estate is located at the southern edge of Pauillac and was bought in 1993 by the French billionaire industrialist François Pinault, whose empire includes Yves St. Laurent, Gucci and Christie’s Auction House.

In terms of volumes, on average there are about 20,000 cases of Latour made each year. In Pauillac the Cabernet Sauvignon grape dominates, accounting for 80% of the vineyard, with Merlot at 18% and Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot comprising the remaining 2%.

Much of Latour's success is due to severe selection of only the healthiest fruit, total de-stemming, and separate tanks for each parcel of vines. A three-week long maceration is followed by malolactic fermentation in vats before the wine chosen to become Ch. Latour is run off into 100% new barrels for ageing.

The wine is often described as powerful, structured and compelling, and has probably been the most consistent performer amongst the First Growth Wines over the past century, producing very good wine even in the more challenging vintages. It has great potential to age, with the best vintages lasting more than 50 years.

Chateau Latour, 1998

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

The 1998 Chateau Latour is a refined, elegant offering with a dark ruby colour, sweet cassis fruit, attractive fat, surprisingly soft tannin, and a good finish. There is firmness and muscle in the background, but this is not an enormous or powerful Latour. However, it is very pure, with the vineyard's mineral/black fruit character presented in a medium-weight format.

Chateau Latour, 1997

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 90 Points Robert Parker ***

"The 1997 Latour will be a surprisingly fine wine, as well as one of the longest lived offerings of the vintage. It possesses lots of tannin and depth, along with medium to full body, and a textured, multidimensional personality. Sweet, jammy fruit is intertwined with dried herbs, coffee, and earth in this saturated ruby/purple-colored wine. The finish lasts for 20 seconds, a positive sign for a 1997. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 1999

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe (Mid Shoulder- label damp affected)

*** 96 Points Robert Parker ***
*** 95 Points Wine Journal ***

Reviews
"The wine of the vintage, the 1966 Latour is a classic, old style Bordeaux that has required decades to become drinkable. A dark, opaque garnet color is followed by a fabulous nose of cedar, sweet leather, black fruits, prunes, and roasted walnuts, refreshing underlying acidity, sweet but noticeable tannin, and a spicy finish. This powerful, vigorous, immensely impressive, concentrated Latour has reached its plateau of maturity, where it will remain for another 10-20 years.

"The Latour ’66 remains one of the great wines of the vintage.

Chateau Latour, 1953

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe (Base of Neck)

*90-93 points -Critics' score Aggregated*

Exciting that this was very much intact. Great color for a sixty year old. Probably at the beginning of a decline curve - but aging gracefully. Smooth and gentle, but retaining its essential body, acidity, and identity. Aromas and flavors were classic aged Pauillac. Touches of cinnamon and clove over red fruit, cigar box, leather and a plush velvet texture. Ultimately this had astonishing strength and character. More grace than power at this stage of life. This is one classy old wine!

Chateau Latour, 1950

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe (High shoulder)

Established around 1680, the Chateau Latour estate is one of the oldest of the Medoc. At the heart of the estate, the principal parcel named "L'Enclos" is 47 hectares of the oldest vines that are preciously maintained because only they are able to give birth to the "Grand Vin". The wine of Chateau Latour is an example of consistent excellence, no matter the vintage. Firm, tannic and concentrated in its youth, it needs a long cellaring to reveal all of its profoundness, strength and extraordinary richness. At perfect maturity, the wine distinguishes itself by an incredible bouquet of black currant, hazelnut and leather.
