Great complex nose of cedar, spice and fresh fruit. Here, the concentration is different and present! This is a wine that has the chew and grows fat, very, very sappy, yet tannic, tasty, very, very fruity with a taste of cedar and less acidity than other. It's very good. A wine without rudeness with sap. Only serve to your friends!

A spectacular Latour, from a vintage that has provided many superb surprises (especially in the Medoc and Graves), the deep garnet-colored 1955 reveals some amber at the edge. It remains tannic, but its extraordinary perfume of smoked meats, dried herbs, cedar, black fruits, underbrush, and leather is seductive. It is full-bodied, with a sweet, intense mid-palate, plenty of power, and decades of life remaining. This is an under-rated, stunning Latour that may even improve.

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.

Very good wine. Deep, healthy colour; perfect nose, flavour, balance, and length. Complete. Faultless.

Château Latour 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


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.


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 ...
