A few years ago, Château Latour from Pauillac left the Bordeaux trading system of offering the market immediately after harvest and prime. Each year they now release a vintage from their cellars that they believe is perfect for enjoying now and for years to come. Although a monument such as Château Latour can of course also be preserved for a very long time. The 2010 vintage was only offered by the Château in September 2022.

Château Latour relaunches its 2010. This is one of the legendary Latours with the perfect score of 100 points from various wine critics! One of the most essential Bordeaux wines of recent years.

The Latour 2010 is deep garnet in color and bursts from the glass with powerful scents of cherry blackberries dried roses, cigar boxes, fragrant autumn earth. Full, concentrated and oh so decadent on the palate, it has a firm, grainy texture and a delicious freshness that brings the rich, luscious fruit to an epically long finish. It's incredibly tempting to drink now, but this wine will reveal its otherworldly secrets for the next fifty years++. Packaged in OWC/1
