Château Latour





Grape Variety:

Cab Sauvignon Merlot

Château Latour, 1er Cru Classé, Pauillac, 2008

Tasting Note:

Technical Director Frederic Engerer has yet again made another contender for wine of the vintage. This is an immense Latour, taken from the 'Grand Enclos', the original vineyards that surround the chateau. 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 0.75% Cabernet Franc, 0.25% Petit Verdot. A huge, large-scaled Latour with hints of cut flowers and brooding black fruits. Wonderful searing attack leads to a multidimensional, multilayered black fruit and mineral core. Although an enormous wine this is still stylish, focused and very pure. It possesses really impressive structure with immense length. There is real tension here - the 2008 Grand Vin exhibits both richness and strictness. Excellent wine.
