Rouge sang. Intensité moyenne. Reflets noirs. Note d'évolution. Un peu curieux. Notes de vieux bois et feuille morte. Très suave à l'attaque, le vin se développe gras et juteux et ce caractère visqueux est très rare dans ce millésime. Lente évolution tanique plutôt savoureuse et d'une belle longueur. Vin agréable, déjà un peu ancien au nez, mais très satisfaisant en bouche. A boire.

Given the 1993 Latour's exceptional quality, it is not surprising to see how well-made the 1993 Forts de Latour, the estate's second wine, has turned out. It displays a deep ruby color, and a spicy nose of wood, herbs, nuts, and red and black fruits. More supple than its brawnier big brother, this wine possesses moderate tannin, as well as a medium-bodied, slightly austere personality.

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 ...
