Chateau Latour Pauillac. Château Latour’s Grand Vin is made exclusively from
“vieilles vignes”, an average of 60 years-old, in the Enclos. Gravettes,
Sarmentier, Pièce de Château... these are the names of some of the finest plots
that express the character of the terroir and forge the wine’s identity every
The heart of the Enclos is the only terroir that, every
year, can produce the depth, elegance and concentration that we expect of the
Grand Vin. It is here that the Cabernet Sauvignon (accounting for more than 90%
of the blend) can achieve optimal expression in terms of colour, richness and
freshness. These wines need time - often a decade- before they begin to be
ready for drinking.
In great vintages, the power and energy of Château Latour's
wines enables them to continue to develop for several decades with ease. The
bouquet and impressions on tasting gradually evolve, becoming increasingly
complex, ultimately reaching a peak, after which the tannins soften and then
the wine slowly declines. Beyond the pleasure of drinking them, these wines can
produce powerful feelings and unforgettable moments.
Château Latour is also known for having the ability to produce fine wines even in difficult years. Château Latour is also known for having the ability to produce fine wines even in difficult years.
