Château Latour decided to release the Grand Vin de Château Latour 2000 and Les Forts de Latour 2009 onto the market.
For the last three years we have been selecting wines from our cellars that we think will best satisfy our clients and connoisseurs of the Estate.
This year we have decided to offer the Grand Vin de Château Latour 2000 and Les Forts de Latour 2009.
Château Latour 2000 is a giant of a wine that evolves slowly. After 16 years of ageing, this wine is subtle, elegant and concentrated, yet is just starting to open up and reveal its full complexity. With excellent cellaring potential, this wine lives up to the expectations it raised in its infancy. For this release, we are offering the totality of stock still available at the Estate.
2009 was a wonderfully hot and sunny year which produced wines with a magical charm and impressive structure. Forts de Latour 2009 is a fleshy, elegant and complex wine with an incredible expression of ripe fruits. Having reached its first stage of maturity, this wine can already be thoroughly enjoyed whilst retaining excellent cellaring possibilities.
These two wines will be released onto the market at the end of March exclusively via a selection of wine merchants from La Place de Bordeaux. They will join the Pauillac de Château Latour 2010 which was released at the beginning of the year.
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.
