Château Latour's second wine, it is made from grapes harvested from plots at Latour whose vines are less than eight years old. Many people do not consider it to be a ¿second¿ wine, but rather a wine in its own right, with the level of a fifth or even fourth growth. Its imposing tannic structure requires it to be cellared for many years for the tannins to completely soften. A very distinguished wine.*The above information describes the wine and is not vintage specific.

Tasting notes - Extract
"Les Forts de Latour is composed of two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot blended with a tiny dollop of Petit Verdot, and finished at 13.5% alcohol. Juicy notes of creme de cassis, licorice, camphor, smoke and crushed rocks are followed by a rich, unctuously textured, thick, juicy, exceptionally pure, long wine." R. Parker (02/2012)
