What started as La Tour de Saint Maubert in the 1300's has slowly moved toward the Grand Estate that is Chateau Latour today. The notorious vineyards upon which its fame is based, were more formally established in the 17th century. Their position in Pauillac borders Saint Julien and as such has helped create their distinct terroir difference from that of Lafite and Mouton.

The famed Enlcos which provides the fruit for the Grand Vin has a sub soil of sticky clay with gravel so as to provide power and weight but remain workable and free draining which has proved pivotal in wetter years. there are 138 plots that are worked to make up the three wines, all of them farmed and vinified in the ways that suits them best to extract the finest quality and detail for every vintage.

The wines of Latour are full yet refined, taking decades to evolve in the cellar, coming out the other side as nuanced finely detailed wines with depth, clarity and harmonious structure with a weight that is unmistakeable. They believe so much in the age potential and the way they craft their wines so much,  that Latour is the first estate to no longer offer wines en premieur, instead releasing all three of their cuvee when they deem their window of drinkability to be open.

These bottles are imacculate, still in their original crate and wrapped in the original tissue paper from the Chateau. Perfect labels and fill levels into the neck
