After rather mixed years, Château Latour confirms its excellence with this 1952 vintage. This Château Latour 1952 is surprising. A beautiful color, a very aromatic nose, beautiful tannins, rich, balanced, this wine has all the characteristics of a good wine.

(12-1997) Still quite powerful, this displays dark color and mature, generous aromas and flavors of minerals, dried cherries and tobacco. Tannins are firm, but not dry.

(09-1993) Most recently, my 21st note, a magnum maturing nicely; bouquet fully evolved; sweet, very rich but still tannic.

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.
