Pauillac de Latour

Pauillac’s Chateau Latour needs little introduction and remains one of the pinnacles of the fine wine world. Classified as a Premiere Cru in the 1855 Classification and still maintains its premier status today. Three wines are made at the estate, the Grand Vin, Les Forts de Latour and Pauillac de Latour. The Pauillac de Latour is made from a selection from young vines. Cabernet Sauvignon dominates the blend of all of the wines, accounting for around 80% of the 78 hectares under vine. This wine is already a pleasure to drink now but will benefit from cellaring for another 5 years at least. 2010 was an excellent vintage and produced some truly outstanding wines, with savoury and earthy as one expects from a Paulliac of this quality.

The best Pauillac I ever tasted (and this wine has been a revelation ever since they first introduced it), the 2010 from Latour represents 24% of their production. It is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44.5% Merlot and .5% Cabernet Franc. An amazingly opulent, round, delicious wine, and a great buy when they finally release it – assuming it comes in under a three-digit price – it possesses wonderfully silky tannins, classic black currant, cedar wood and forest floor notes, and rich, full-bodied opulence as well as a terrific purity and palate presence. It should drink well for 10-15+ years. (RP) (2/2013)

A wine with berry, chocolate and spice character. Full body, with velvety tannins and a savory finish. It shows currant and berry. I love the texture to this. Third wine of first growth Latour. Drink or hold. (2/2013)

Latour's 2010 Pauillac de Château Latour is a huge overachiever and shows just how compelling this vintage is. The aromatics alone are beguiling, but it is the wine's impeccable balance and class that are most impressive today. Hints of leather, earthiness, tobacco, licorice and dark cherry are nicely layered into the silky finish. The 2010 is an absolutely delicious wine to drink now and over the next decade or so.

Pretty gorgeous and glorious. Richness and some real density. Very serious wine! (4/2016)
