The Story

This charming château, embellished by a small tower, is located close to the church in the village of Pomerol. Acquired in 1917 by Mrs. Loubat, the then famous proprietor of PETRUS, the vineyard was owned by her niece, Mrs. Lacoste, for 40 years before she donated it to the Fondation de Foyers de Charité de Châteauneuf de Galaure in 2002.
The vineyard, with an average age of 35 years, is characterised by its soil diversity: rather loamy soil around the château itself and more gravelly and clayey on the best blocks near the church.
Farming the property since 1962, Ets. Jean-Pierre MOUEIX brings the usual care and expertise to the vineyard - entirely replanted after the 1956 frost - and to the cellar. After a gentle fermentation in concrete tanks, the young wine is aged in 33% new oak barrels. Between elegance, power and smoothness, the wines of Château LATOUR show a perfect balance.


Production : approximately 30,000 bottle
Planted acreage : 20 acres
Grape varieties : 90% Merlot - 10% Cabernet Franc
Type of soil : 2/3 gravel with clay - 1/3 clay loam

Written Notes

Intense and rich dark fruit but with a bit powerful tannin. The integrated structure and freshness has saved the wine from the tannin. 92-94
  • 93p
Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black core. Pure fruit in a very elegant style, hints of oak spices and roasting aroma in the background. On the palate well structured with ripe tannins, juicy fruit and a fresh character, elegant and persistent.
  • 94p
Beautiful wine. DC. Fragrant dark cherry plum, boysenberry aromas with mocha oak and garrigue notes. Superb density of fruit. Delicious redcurrant, boysenberry fruit, plentiful chocolaty tannins, some cola notes and mocha oak. Rich and generous wine. Firm chocolaty finish. Great cellaring potential 97 points
