New Release Latour: “An extraordinary wine” - Robert Parker Jr
Chateau Latour has just released its final tranche of 2008 (ex-Chateau) and the first release of Les Forts de Latour 2013. This exceptional First Growth Chateau decided to abandon the en primeur system after the 2011 vintage in favour of selling mature stocks on an ex-Chateau basis. One can debate whether or not this was the right decision, but one irrefutable fact remains: Latour is one of the finest and most age-worthy wines in the Medoc. The great Enclos vineyard that surrounds the chai is a quite exceptional terroir, which produces wines of haunting beauty, sheer class and effortless ageing potential.

Amazingly the 2008 has been released at a lower price than the 2006 ex-Chateau release last year and only an 8% premium over UK stocks. Anything less than a 10% premium on ex-Chateau stock should be considered a good deal. Forts de Latour 2013 has never been released to the market before, so this is the first opportunity to buy this wine.
