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

Many regard Latour as the greatest of Bordeaux's Premier Crus. 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

Chateau Latour, 1992

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe
Excellent Provenance

Only 50% of the 1992 harvest went into the "grand vin." The result is a sweet, expansive, rich, medium-bodied, surprisingly supple Latour with the tell-tale English walnut, blackcurrant, and mineral-scented nose, very good to excellent flavor concentration, low acidity and moderate tannin in the finish. This is an extremely well-made, approachable style of Latour that should age well for 10-15 years. It may develop even further, thus justifying an even higher score.

Chateau Latour, 1991

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

The Latour 1991 is a terrific wine for an off-vintage scoring 90 points by Wine Advocate.

Review: " Tasted blind from double magnum at the chateau, it is a long time since I have encountered this off-vintage Latour, which must rank as one of the finest of the vintage. The nose retains a touch of greenness that cannot be ignored; yet there are also attractive aromas of cigar box, graphite and sous-bois. The palate appears to have softened in the last few year and is not as brutish as I recall and there is a lovely spiciness towards the finish. I would not leave it for a long time, but it must rank as one of the finest in this forgettable year.

Chateau Latour, 1987

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

The 1987 Latour was made from 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot, without any Cabernet Franc or Petit Verdot. The wine has a ruby color with some amber, and a promising bouquet of blackcurrants, spicy oak, and herbs. Medium-bodied, with more power and tannin than many wines of this vintage.

Chateau Latour, 1983

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

1983 Chateau Latour

90 points Vinous
The 1983 Latour is a delightful surprise. It is a vintage that I had not seen for a few years, and I had just two vague recollections of an ordinary First Growth; this was far superior and unquestionably the best bottle I have encountered. Modest bricking on the rim. The harmonious bouquet is fragrant and well defined, demonstrating a little leafiness with hints of leather. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a touch more fruit than I would have predicted, and laced with tobacco and pencil lead. Previously I lamented that the 1983 lacks vigor and vivacity.

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!
