Nestled within the sun-drenched heart of Pauillac, this Monster is the most powerful of the five first growths. Renowned for its iconic "Les Forts de Latour" vineyard, meticulous winemaking, and powerful, age-worthy wines, Latour embodies the pinnacle of French winemaking.

A Story Rooted in Grand Cru:

Château Latour boasts a lineage as revered as its wines. From its meticulously tended Enclos vineyard, planted with over 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, this Grand Cru Classé whispers secrets of sun-soaked slopes and mineral-rich soils. Hélène Genin, the estate's talented winemaker, meticulously guides each vintage, letting the magic of Latour unfold naturally.

Accolades of Enduring Grandeur:

The 1997 Latour has garnered universal acclaim, captivating the hearts and palates of critics:

  • Jancis Robinson MW: 17/20
  • CellarTracker: 92/100
  • Tom Cannavan: 92/100
  • Falstaff: 91/100
  • DCAMW: "Medium to deep ruby-red with dark pigmentation. Aromas are intense & chocolatey with notes of coffee, tobacco & plenty of clean, cedary oak. Initially the fruit is quite closed, the palate shows tobacco & chocolate flavors & is enlivened by fresh acidity. The structure is plush, velvety & cedary. The fruit on the mid-palate opens to show warm plum & chocolate hints, with cassis touches. Alcohol adds a little warmth to the finish which is big but well-balanced."
