Infos produit

1955 is a great vintage for Château Latour. Comparable to the years 1949 and 1952 the wines are elegant, generous and round. At the tasting, Château Latour has been at its peak for several years. On the nose, it presents notes of smoke, leather and liquorice. On the palate, the tannins are well melted. A great discovery for lovers of great wines.

(12-2006) Mahogany core with tawny rim. The nose is lovely, with mint, cherry and redcurrants. There is a fantastic lift and unerring vivacity about it. The palate is medium-bodied with racy acidity, fine tannins, very classic in style but with superb freshness and poise. Another testament to the greatness of this overlooked vintage. Drink now.

(08-2000) Pretty, racy and fine. Shows rich aromas of cherries, minerals and currants. Full-bodied, with lovely ripe fruit, silky tannins and a long finish. A beauty.

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.
