The 1964 vintage was a good year in Bordeaux. Château Latour 1964 is a beautiful wine, with an aromatic bouquet of cedar, coffee and spices. Very pleasant to drink, the roundness and sweetness of the Cru Classé will delight lovers of old wines.

(10-2000) Vying with Chateau Petrus as the finest
(06-2009) This is an utterly delicious wine! A languid, almost sedate bouquet whose charms creep up on you, with macerated black cherries, clear honey, blackcurrant wine gums, glycerol and a touch of rose petal, strafed with breathtaking delineation, the palate is full-bodied, exuding a sense of controlled opulence. Cashmere tannins, quite glossy and plush with immense purity and class. Rounded towards the finish with sweet black cherries mixed with summer fruits, great tension and poise. I doubt I will ever encounter a finer example of this wine. Drink now-2020. Tasted June 2009.
(05-2014) Still structured, tightly knit with a lot of vitality despite being 50 years old. Incredible how fresh this bottle is and how the dried fruit characters and tobacco, cedar notes linger on the palate. Drinking well now but it should keep for another 8-10 years easily.
(09-2012) Upon opening, the wine is black, opaque, mysterious. The nose elicits the first responses. It doesn’t deliver all of its secrets immediately, it needs a little time but we feel the elegance, the richness, the minerality and the black fruits, all enrobed in fine, exotic essences. The mouth is very concentrated, rich, perfectly balanced, subtle and long. What a pleasure!
