(02-1997) Dark red color. Blood. Intense. Homogeneous. Slight evolution. Brilliant. Nose of medium intensity. Discreet. Costs. Quite pure and complex. Spice. At good intensity agitation. Vegetal touch. Clean and lively attack of the 88 style, developing on a fatty structure, with a creamy flavor, which evolves very slowly on good concentration and tight tannins, towards a finish with enveloped austerity, lacking a zest of maturity , for its liveliness, but the persistence is long and fresh, with a return of the creamy character of Pauillacs. Can be tasted and kept.

(01-1998) This wine has consistently exhibited a great deal of oak and peppery, mineral-scented black currant fruit in its blossoming nose. In the mouth, it exhibits the tannic ferocity that characterizes many 1986s, but is surprisingly lighter than I would have expected. A good effort, but it could use more depth and concentration, particularly if one compares it with the 1982 or 1989.

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.
