About Chateau Latour
One of the oldest producers in France, Chateau Latour has been making top quality wines in Bordeaux for centuries. Awarded Premier Cru status in 1855, Latour has not looked back. Today its Grand Vin is one of the finest Cabernets in the world.
95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009
($950) Bright full ruby. Slightly stern aromas of cassis, graphite, licorice, incense and flowers. Then dense and penetrating, with terrific energy to the subtle dark fruit, licorice and mineral flavors. There's a coolness to the fruit that makes this wine dramatically different from the Forts de Latour. Finishes with big, building tannins and a powerful sense of structure. A fairly large-scaled Latour but not particularly sweet in the early going. In fact, this went into a shell with 24 hours in the recorked bottle.
