Bordeaux and its Wines

A collection of 8,000 wine-producing "châteaux" some of which barely qualify as cottages; an annual flood of wines that run the gamut from dire to divine.

Chateau Latour

Pauillac, Bordeaux

French Wines

Chateau Latour, Pauillac, Médoc, BordeauxChateau Latour
While the Bordeaux Classification system now treated as holy writ was drawn up in 1855, the vineyards that produce the top wines of Pauillac were already being referred to as "Premiers Crus" by the 18th century. The original tower no longer exists, the site of this tower was probably located where the chai stands today, due to its proximity to an ancient well, but in the 1620s a circular tower (La Tour de Saint-Lambert) was built on the estate and though it is actually designed as a pigeon roost remains a strong symbol of the vineyard. The vineyard of château Latour, created about 1680, is one of the oldest in Médoc. It rapidly acquired prestigious renown, fully justified by the quality of its wines. First of all, this quality comes from the exceptional geographic and geological situation on gravel crests overlooking the Gironde and also to the fact that, of all the vineyards in Médoc, it is nearest the river. In 1993 François Pinault, businessman and wine connoisseur bought the Chateau from an English group. He seems determined to improve the quality further.

Chateau Latour, Pauillac, Médoc, BordeauxChateau Latour
Latour's great vintages are famed for their longevity, requiring longer to mature than most other great clarets. It is also known for consistently producing exceptional wines even in comparatively poor vintages, when other vineyards yield only disappointing results. The "Grand Vin" is exclusively produced from the old vines which are situated in the "Grand Enclos" (the main vineyard of 47 hectares), some of them being centenarian.
Ageing : In new barrels, for 18 months.
Grape varieties : 75 % cabernet sauvignon ; 20 % merlot ; 4 % cabernet franc ; 1 % petit verdot.

The chief characteristics of Chateau Latour are: Intense, deep, luxurious and firm.

Chateau Latour 2000  Bordeaux France Chateau Latour 2003 Bordeaux FranceRed Wine
One of the three greatest young Bordeaux I have ever tasted Chateau Latour’s 2003 is one of the candidates for “wine of the vintage” (Latour’s 2002 is the wine of the vintage in my opinion). This great estate has produced a freakishly rich, concentrated Pauillac revealing no evidence of over-ripeness or too much weight. Robert Parker Rating 98-100

Chateau les Forts de Latour, Pauillac, BordeauxChateau Les Forts de Latour
Second wine of Chateau Latour, this wine is produced :
a) with the grapes from the " young vines " of the Chateau Latour "Grand Enclos", which are less than 12 years old.
b) from the grapes grown on three plots situated outside the "Grand Enclos",
c) in addition, and depending on the quality of the vintage, certain vats of Grand Vin may not, after numerous tastings, be up to the standards required.
They may then be demoted to " Les Forts de Latour ". Since 1990, it is released "en primeur", like its " big brother ", the Grand Vin.

Les Forts de Latour Pauillac, Bordeaux 
This is surprisingly concentrated and complex for a ‘second' wine -- but maybe not so surprising given that it is Chateau Latour's second. Latour, after all, is the most massive and backward of all the chateau.
