1983 CHÂTEAU LATOUR 1983

After the immense success of the 1982 vintage, the 1983 vintage is trying to establish itself as a great vintage. A rather satisfactory year at Château Latour in the Pauillac appellation. Marked by an ideal flowering which began on June 8 and superb harvests at the end of September, Château Latour offers a great harmonious wine with a very present fruit in the mouth. A pleasant tasting.

Jancis Robinson March - 2011

This was a very good bottle. Dark vibrant crimson. Very concentrated and sweet with an intense nose reminiscent of liquorice that almost reminded me of Syrah. Quite amazing persistence with an impressively fresh finish. Because the bottle I'd chosen had been a 1961 that was a little disappointing on first opening, I thought this could have been it – a sign of how winning this 1983 was.

A solid, firm wine with a tannin structure that is softening. Aromas of chocolate, ripe fruit and meat. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and tannins and a long, long finish. Thick and chewy. Gorgeous.

Beautiful color slightly advanced. The wine does not deliver at the opening. It takes time but it will gradually express itself during the tasting. Black fruit, mushroom, very thick. The palate is rich and long. It does not have the genius found in a great vintage but it is a more than excellent '83.

Strong ruby garnet, delicately undersealed, broader water rim. In the nose ripe plum confit, wild berry jam, delicate lactic nuances, fine herbal spice. On the palate stoffig and immensely sweet, fine tannins, delicate honey touch, good length, fine bitter chocolate touch, some black tea in the finish, oranges in the back taste, remains well adherent, delicate roasted notes, has also in the single bottle still a good future, an absolute top wine of the vintage.

Château Latour
Château Latour

The Château Latour is a french estate. It is ranked Premier Cru Classé in the Official Classification created in 1855.

There are 2 other Châteaux in the Pauillac appellation which also benefit from the prestigious title of 1er Cru Classé: Lafite Rothschild and Mouton Rothschild. 

Created around 1680, Château Latour's vineyard is one of the oldest in the Médoc. At the heart of the estate, the main parcel, called "l'Enclos", is made up of 47 hectares of old vines that are preciously maintained, because only they are able to give birth to the "Grand Vin". The 18 hectares of exterior plots, the vines less than 10 years old and the possibly downgraded cuvées produce the second wine of the estate, "Les Forts de Latour". The wine of Château Latour is an example of regularity regardless of the quality of the vintage. Firm, tannic and concentrated in its youth ...

Latour is the epitome of excellence in good years and bad ones. Among the greatest vintages, the most beautiful achievements of the chateau: 1920, 1929, 1949, 1955, 1959, 1961, 1970, 1982, 1990, 2000.
