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, 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, 1988

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

91 points - Robert Parker
92 Points - Wine journal

"The best showing yet for a wine from this under-rated vintage, the dark garnet-coloured 1988 Latour reveals slight amber at the edge. A bouquet of melted tar, plums, black currants, cedar, and underbrush is followed by a sweet entry, with medium to full body, excellent ripeness, and mature tannin. It is a classic, elegant Latour with more meaty, vegetable-like flavours than are found in a riper year, such as 1989 and 1990. The 1988 has just begun to enter its plateau of maturity, where it should remain for 25 years. Anticipated maturity: now-2025" Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 2000.

Chateau Latour, 1970

Pauillac Premiere Grand cru Classe
Level Top Shoulder | Good Label

The 1970 Latour is one of the top performing wines of the 1970 vintage scoring an impressive 98/100 Parker Points. These bottles have been cellared well for almost 5 decades.

Rating 98 Parker points.
One of the top two or three wines of the vintage (Petrus and Trotanoy are noteworthy rivals). The opaque garnet color is followed by a huge, emerging nose of black fruits, truffles, walnuts, and subtle tobacco/Graves-like scents. Full-bodied, fabulously concentrated and intense, with a sweet inner-core of fruit (a rarity in most 1970 Medocs), and high but well-integrated tannin, this enormously endowed, massive Latour should hit its prime by the end of the century and last for 2-3 decades thereafter.

Chateau Latour, 1966

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!
