  • What the experts say...

    (...) Le Latour 1971 n'a peut-être pas atteint la pointe de sa maturité (...). Il arbore toujours une robe grenat foncé bien soutenue, mais légèrement éclaircie sur le bord, et exhale de généreuses senteurs de métal, de minéral, de fruits noirs, de fumé et d'herbes rôties. Moyennement corsé, charnu et de bonne mâche dès l'attaque, il est doux en milieu de bouche et admirable de persistance en finale. Il semblerait bien qu'il s'agisse de la réussite du millésime dans le Médoc. Source : Robert Parker (1/97)

    Cuvée presentation

    Latour's wines show exemplary consistency, whatever the quality of the vintage. Firm, tannic and concentrated in their youth, they require long cellaring to reveal the full depth of their power and extraordinary richness. When perfectly mature, the wine has an incredible bouquet of blackcurrants, hazelnuts and leather. A monumental wine.

    Information about domain Château Latour

    Created in around 1680, Château Latour is one of the oldest vineyards in the Médoc. There is a central plot known as the Enclos with 47 hectares of old vines that are maintained with extreme care, as these are the ones used to make the grand vin. Another 18 hectares of external plots, consisting of vines less than ten years-old and potentially declassified plots are used to produce the property's second wine, Les Forts de Latour.
