(10-2005) Dark color, slightly evolved. Very open, fine, fruity, smoky (coffee) and creamy nose. It appears a little green when agitated. On the palate, the wine begins slowly, takes on muscle in the middle, takes on flavors of ink and tar. However, it ends a bit firm. This firmness attests to the lack of maturity and yet a creamy note remains pleasantly. Considering the year, this tasting remains a pleasant surprise.

(07-2004) Tasted alongside Chateau Lafite 1992, a more classic Pauillac nose: cedar, pencil-lead and dusty black fruits. Develops more aromas in the glass, with a touch of green pepper and a slight tinny note. The palate is well-balanced, a little more concentrated than Lafite with firmer tannins and structure. Austere and conservative but with good grip and persistency. Not a wine that would show well on its own, but a perfect accompaniment to food. Drink now. Tasted July 2004.

(08-2000) Outstanding quality from a weak year. Good dark ruby color. Intense aromas of chocolate, berry and cedar. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a long finish. Starting to show some bottle bouquet, but good backbone and firmness.

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.
