Château Latour 1er Cru

Michael Schuster


Subtle, ripe black fruit and clear, fine gravel backing, too; nicely concentrated and beautifully textured wine; long, graceful, ripe and fleshy, complex to taste, a really beautiful length of sweet fruit, mineral aromas, freshness and silky fine tannin; close-textured, but neither sinewy nor muscly, a beauty of a Latour, not grand but with a slightly surprising (for Latour) yet delightful combination of absolute ripeness, juicy vitality, and ease of texture. Singular... and seductive, and very likely to be deliciously accessible relatively early. 2020-35

Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve


Futures of Château Latour will no longer be offered, but we can assure you that the wine possesses everything that the vintage has to offer, with a rare intensity of spicy flavors and imposing, distinguished tannins, in the same vein as the 2008, but with certainly more potential.
