Chateau Latour Pauillac

Wine Details





Wine Description

(From 1989 Vintage) Rich and round wine. Full-bodied, with very good fruit and long velvety tannins. Needs more time. Round and rich. This is always outstanding and underrated by many.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1997 Vintage) One of Bordeauxs most concentrated rich and full-bodied wines. Latour is dark ruby in color and has a unique bouquet of fresh walnuts, leather, and black currants.

    First growths dinner 70 Mouton 75 Latour 75 Haut Brion 85 Margaux. Needed a bit of time to soften. Representative of Latour pedigree. Strong and masculine.
