In a completely unprecedented move Chateau Latour 2008 has been released this morning. This is, to the best of our knowledge, the first time that the First Growths have come out at the start of the campaign.
Normally they bide their time and their release marks the end of the campaign. Last year they came out almost two months later in the second week of June.
And, like Angelus, they have made an effort on the pricing. It will be the cheapest vintage of Latour on the market.
Full details and tasting note to follow. And we think it likely the other First Growths will be coming out in the next few days. So watch this space.
