Infos produit

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.

(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.

(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!

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.
