LATOUR

Version Française Assemblage : 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc

Le millésime 2004 a annoncé le retour d’un vin très classique avec un style puissant, frais, vif et composé d’une structure précise et solide. Le fruit, très concentré et retenu par une chair imposante, montre déjà une grande pureté et une énergie d’un niveau rare. La finale est longue et très soyeuse, supportée par un tanin très fondu.

Le Guide Hachette Des Vins 2008 ★★

Depuis 1993, François Pinault a pris en main les destinées de ce cru. Les investissements et les améliorations ont été nombreux et aujourd'hui l'architecture intérieure des bâtiments d'exploitation, véritable fort carré, procurent une impression de rigueur qui se dégage aussi de ce millésime. D'un rouge profond à reflets noirs, sa robe annonce un ensemble solide et sans failles. Généreux et structuré, construit sur des tanins puissants sans être agressifs, ce vin justifiera pleinement un séjour en cave de huit à douze ans. Alors, sa palette aromatique, faite de fruits rouges et de vanille, s'épanouira pleinement et révélera tout son agrément.

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (171), June 2007: 95/100

A terrific effort from Administrator Frederic Engerer and owner Francois Pinault, the dark ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Latour exhibits a strong cassis character intermixed with notes of crushed rocks, earth, cedar, and forest floor. Racy, elegant, but powerful with medium to full body, and sweet tannin, it will benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring, and should keep for three decades. It is a very impressive offering.

James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, March 2007: 95/100

Captivating aromas of currants, black licorice and spices, with just a hint of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Structured and racy red. Best after 2011.

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, August 2005: 19/20

Healthy but not excessively deep crimson. Very dark, mineral, very Latour and classical. Iodine and other minerals. Great balance, Dense and fine, more polished than the old slightly more rustic style but with definite terroir expression. Great finesse and power all the way through. Although pretty tough and high in tannins with its IPT of 70, it also seems remarkably integrated rather than made up of entirely different elements. Lovely compaction. Quite a bit of acid. Lovely sweetness. Drink 2015-40.

Château Latour-1er Cru Classé en 1855-Appellation Pauillac
Château Latour

This famous chateau takes its name from the majestic 17th century tower in its grounds. Situated in the extreme South of the appellation, almost on the edge of St Julien and the bank of the Garonne to the East, Chateau Latour extends over a 65 hectare quaternary gravel mound - however, only the prestigious 45 hectare “paddock” is exclusively reserved for the production of the “grand vin”.

For centuries Latour has dominated over the other Premiers Crus of Southern Médoc, and for some, the other wines of Bordeaux, due to the exceptional quality and unbroken regularity of its wines. However, such richness often demands extreme patience before the full splendor of these wines is released.

Area under vine : 45 Ha
Production : 175 000 bouteilles
