What an experience! Notes of blackcurrant, candied fruit and coffee, impressive length on the palate, with perfectly controlled acidity and tannins. A pleasure enjoyed with the whole family and true wine lovers, this second wine has its place among the greats.more reviews

"While it's drinking very well right now, it easily has a good 20 years of cellaring ahead, maybe more. Impressive." Robert Parker
This is a wonderful introduction to the wines of the legendary Château Latour. Intense ruby colour, the nose is fruity, fresh and ripe with peony and spice. The palate is velvety with ample and silky tannins, opening up to a precise, taut and very persistent finish. Benefiting from an extraordinary terroir in an exceptional vintage, Les Forts de Latour offers us an imposing ensemble of density, cut out for long cellaring.

The 2017 Les Forts De Latour presents itself consistently with classic aromas of cedar wood, tobacco and blackcurrant that are consistent with the classic Chateau Latour style. It is medium to full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, elegant and balanced, with fine tannins.

CHATEAU LATOUR

Château Latour is a 65-hectare wine-growing estate located in the Médoc region, in Pauillac, which benefits from the AOC of the same name. It is a "premier grand cru" of the Pauillac vineyard according to the 1855 official classification of Bordeaux wines. It shares this rare distinction with Chateau Margaux, Chateau Lafite Rothschild, Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Chateau Haut-Brion, on a unique terroir where Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) can fully develop and give the wine concentration, colour and tannic structure, and Merlot (20%), Cabernet Franc (4%), and Petit Verdot (1%) give it that extra soul. The great wine of Château Latour only comes from the 47 hectares of the estate's historic Enclos. This unique terroir is the only one able to bring depth, elegance and concentration worthy of what one is entitled to expect from a great wine.
