Description :

A beauty, the opaque dense purple-colored 1995 exhibits jammy cassis, vanillin, and minerals in its fragrant but still youthful aromatics. Medium to full-bodied, with exceptional purity, superb concentration, and a long, intense, ripe, 40-second finish, this is a magnificent example of Latour

Château Latour

Château Latour Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac   The Latour vineyard covers around 78 hectares of the Pauillac appellation, of which 47 hectares surround the chateau, these being referred to as L’Enclos. This, the source of the grand vin, extends from the commune boundary with St Julien, where the vines meet those of Château Léoville Las-Cases (shown running up the slope opposite in the image below), from which it is separated by the Ruisseau de Juillac, which drains into the Gironde, up to the road to Haut-Bages-Libéral.

Other plots, acquired during the 19th Century under the aegis of the Ségur family, include Comtesse de Lalande and Petit-Batailley, although these are not generally utilised for the grand vin. The soil underfoot is Gunzian gravel, a surface layer just 60 - 100cm deep, originally carried down from the Pyrenees and the Massif Central by the Gironde when the glaciers melted in the early Quaternary period. Beneath that is a subsoil of clay and marl which has a depth of up to 5m, whilst deeper still is the limestone bedrock of Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon accounts for 80% of the vines, the remainder Merlot (18%), planted wherever clay is more prominent, and then Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

After harvest there is a rigorous selection in the new chai, before the grapes are destemmed prior to fermentation, with separate tanks for the numerous aliquots of wine, divided up according to plot of origin, age of vine and naturally grape variety. Then a three week cuvaison followed by malolactic in vats, prior to selection of the vats for the grand vin. This is Chateau Latour, which is typically 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, although naturally this can vary greatly depending on the vintage. There are perhaps 18 000 cases of the grand vin produced each year (again very variable). The Second wine is Les Forts de Latour, introduced in 1966, and typically 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, of which there are perhaps 11 000 cases produced each year.


Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 96+ points
"A beauty, the opaque dense purple-colored 1995 exhibits jammy cassis, vanillin, and minerals in its fragrant but still youthful aromatics. Medium to full-bodied, with exceptional purity, superb concentration, and a long, intense, ripe, 40-second finish, this is a magnificent example of Latour. As the wine sat in the glass, scents of roasted espresso and toasty new oak emerged. This classic will require considerable cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2050." (Jun 2000)

Wine spectator : 94 points
"Black licorice, cedar, cigar box and fresh herbs. Full-bodied and very structured, with firm, silky tannins and a long finish. Needs time.--’95/’96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2009." (Jun 2007)

Stephen Tanzer : 94 points
"Deep ruby-red color. More expressive aromas of crystallized dark berries, dark chocolate and animal fur. Lush and sweet; thick but delineated. Wonderfully concentrated. This, too, seems rather withdrawn today, but the strength of material is clear to see. Finishes with firm tannins and explosive fruit that goes on and on. " (Jun 1998)
