Infos produit

Château Latour 1980 comes from an average vintage, where the work and know-how of the winegrowers was put to the test because of difficult climatic conditions. Château Latour 1980 is subtle and sweet, with delicate notes of coffee and plums. A Grand Cru Classé that can be drunk or kept for a few years in the cellar.

A pretty and harmonious wine. Amber-red color. Berry, cedar, ash, with hints of tea and tobacco. Medium-bodied, with medium silky tannins and a tobacco, cherry finish.

Jean-Marc Quarin
Jean-Marc Quarin
(12-1997) Color. Dark red, good intensity, evolving towards brown. Nose. Net. Medium intensity. Fine, fruity. Hints of cherry, tobacco and undergrowth. At the same time fresh, evolved and creamy. Restlessness. Identical with more fruit. Supple attack developing on a juicy structure, ample for the year, quite fat, even if the concentration remains medium. Then the wine loosens after the mid-palate in a long finish. The tannin lacks envelope but the aroma lasts a long time on a note of austerity.

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.
