AND FIRST - EXPECTED DECEMBER 8, 2023

The Château Latour is one of the most famous wine estates in the world. It is located in Bordeaux in Pauillac. It is located on the border with the Saint-Julien wine region. Château Latour is classified as Premier Grand Cru Classé according to the Bordeaux wine classification system of 1855. The estate covers 60 hectares and grows approximately 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and some Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

A blend of 84.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 0.5% Petit Verdot, the 2011 Latour represents just 34% of the harvest. It reached 13.1% natural alcohol. It is one of the most convincing wines of the vintage, with a dense ruby/purple color and a sweet, open personality with ripe tannin, excellent intensity, good purity and harmony, a medium to full mouthfeel and plenty of milled flavour. rock, floral and black and blue fruit notes alongside hints of ink and forest floor. This beautifully rich Latour will be surprisingly drinkable within 4-5 years, and could easily age for twenty years or more. Moreover, Latour harvested relatively late for the Medoc. The harvest only started on September 12 and ended on September 26.
