1961 CHÂTEAU LATOUR 1961

1961 was undeniably an exceptional year in Bordeaux. Château Latour confirms this success with its great wine. With its very marked taste, Latour 1961 is structured and fleshy. Very similar to the 1945 vintage with its notes of blackberries and mint, the 1961 Latour has reached its peak but can still improve over the decades.

A blockbuster. Amazingly youthful, yet complex and complete on the palate. Aromas of mint, berries,currant and minerals follow through to a thick and caressing, full-bodied palate. Superlong and superripe. Got to love this. Will it age forever?

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
 Tasted blind at the chateau, it is always a privilege to taste a legend with perfect provenance, although I could not bring myself to describe it as a perfect wine. But is does possess and ethereal bouquet that has laser-like focus: notes of pencil lead, mint, blackberry and limestone. Intriguingly there is a touch of menthol that emerges with aeration, which reminded me of the ’45. The palate has an otherworldly intensity to it with vibrant black fruit, an arching framework of tannins, brilliant minerality and sense of precision on the finish that is captivating. It has become more elegant in recent years, perhaps three-quarters of the way through its drinking plateau. But few wines have a drinking plateau as long as this one. Tasted June 2011.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
That's not a wine, that's 1961 Latour, which means this is in a class all by itself. The wine is incredibly powerful, dense, and intense. There is so much concentration here, your palate is coated with its layers of rocks, stones, gravel, spice, earth, and chewy, red fruits. There is a refined quality to the waves of black and red currants that you cannot find in other wines. The finish starts strong and amazingly, it builds, expands and adds complexities as it lingers, long after the wine has left the glass.

Strong crimson garnet, subtle ocher reflections, wide edge brightening. Sweet cherry fruit, fine herbal spices, tobacco nuances, black berries underlined. Juicy, fine extract sweetness, elegant, ripe tannins, good acid structure, mineral, firm, looks very youthful, black cherries and fine cassis in the aftertaste, has further aging potential. A majestic, perfectly aged wine. Peter Moser

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.
