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.

Vintage 1958

1958
The weather conditions

The end of July was quite hot, and the first half of August, despite being rather wet, still brought decent temperatures. These last 2 months were better than in 1957 and far superior to 1956.
Harvest began on 21 September under a fine weather.

Vintage quality and tasting comments

The wines were very fruity, supple and soft. Today, they have lost most of their "life", except a little fruit and a sweet finish.

Quality: Mediocre year

The moment for optimal drinking and best way of serving

The wine has passed its best a long time ago
If a bottle is opened, keep it vertical at least half a day to settle the sediments at the bottom of the bottle. Then slowly pour the wine into a decanter in order to get rid of these sediments, and serve.

Written Notes

The last wine on this night was actually from the vintage of our Hollywood host, a 1958 Latour. It was quite good given the vintage’s lackluster reputation in Bordeaux. It was smooth, balanced and lush without the richness. It was an uplifting finish to a heavenly night (93M).

Medium red. Fine and aromatic blackcurrant nose with some sweetness. Well-balanced, reliable, but quite light wine, which finished quite well in the aftertaste. Ready to drink and by the way a really good Latour in this off vintage.

 John Kapon / CEO / Ackerr Merrall & Condit, Pro (United States)  tasted  Château Latour 1958  ( Château Latour )

"The 1958 Latour was a wow wine. 1958 isn’t supposed to be this good! It was stunningly delicious, and its nose was intoxicating as well with its peanut and cream soda aromas, not to mention its obvious richness. Its tasty cedar and peanut flavors accentuated its meaty core perfectly, and there was great minerality to its tannins still. This was a Miss Congeniality of a wine, and I actually preferred drinking it to the 1948, although the ’48 was clearly superior by the time we were finished, technically speaking. Don’t forget I am a believer that enjoyment and ratings don’t always go hand in hand, I could get more into it if you take that comment personally, just let me know (94)."
