Thibault Pontallier’s words, “An open vintage, not a shy one”, beautifully sum up the style of the wonderful wines from the hugely exciting 2016 vintage. This is a year where the wines are full of life and vibrancy. The fruit content is as pristinely pure as I can ever remember tasting at such an early stage. The tannins, in the words of the oenologists, are the equal to the great 2010 under analysis, but are totally wrapped up in the richness of their fruit.

These are vintages the château feel are entering their prime of drinking, but which also have an ability to age. This year they have selected the monumental 2005 vintage for Château Latour and the fine, approachable 2011 Les Forts de Latour.
