The Story

The 47 hectares which surround the Château, the heart of the estate, are called "l'Enclos". Only the grapes from these 47 ha make the "Grand Vin de Château Latour". The vines in this vineyard are very old, some of them being centenarian. This "Enclos" benefits from a very unique terroir that combines an optimized sub-soil nutrition for the vines, the Gironde river which tempers extreme weather conditions, and a typical Médoc climate, largely influenced by the Atlantic ocean, which allows the grapes to reach maturation under favourable conditions.

Written Notes

The next Bordeaux was a 1929 Latour courtesy of Jeff. It had a wow nose and impressed the heck out of everyone. Hints of hinderbush, I wrote. Yeah, that’s a new one lol. There were also great aromas of tobasco, musk, cassis and toll house. The palate was full of cedar, cobwebs and sweet cherry fruit. Duke hailed it as ‘wine of the night’ so far, and the Inspector called it ‘the best bottle of this that I have ever had.’ Wait a second, was that a compliment for a Bordeaux wine from the Inspector??? Sacre bleu! Chalk outlined the palate gracefully in this regal and still ruling claret

This can be a well night perfect wine, as it was 10 days ago in Paris. This evening it was a little clouded with a little “happy volatility” (as it turned out). Alas, the nose never quite rallied, but the palate was largely clean, and had the ’29 profile and appeal. You got the sweet fruit, the integrating acidity (as the volatility died down) that added vitality to the mix, plums and raspberries at and past the mid palate. Silky with some dark spices, soft round tannins, with a gorgeous glissade of elegance on the nicely layered finish, just slightly compromised in facets and short of the fully encompassing masterpiece this usually is. 95 Points

Silky and pleasant with truffles and cherries, perfectly balanced, soft and long aftertaste. Great treat.

 Omar Khan, Wine Writer (United States)  tasted  Château Latour 1929  ( Château Latour )

On the nose, you have a lovely suave combination of red fruit and beetroot almost, then black berries and a hint of leather. On the palate, the floral notes consort so amiably with the dark fruit, porcini, some cigar ash, walnuts and spices all the way to and past the mid palate. Plums and raspberries emerge next, there is a voluptuous appeal owing to the vintage, yet it is so polished yet rich, enticingly persistent, everything gliding balletically across the palate, on the finish this is just arousing in its seductive polish. 98 Points
