Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, January 2017

Rich sweet dark hedgerow fruit aromas, with hints of sweet fruit cake. This is a powerful wine with great density and structure, naturally powerful, aided by the lovely sweetness of black fruits giving the wine a central core. The youthful tannic density tasted in its youth have now been absorbed in the wine. This remains incredibly intense and youthful, polished, long and fresh on the finish. High class.

Producer

Château Latour

It is a common misconception that Château Latour was named after its cream-coloured tower - a 17th century edifice that served as a dovecote. The original tower that gave its name to this exemplary property was built in the 15th century as a watchtower to fend off invading pirates during the Hundred Years War. Unfortunately, it has long been eroded away. Château Latour's vines are planted on the gravel soil of Paulliac, most of them stand 12 to 16 metres above the Gironde Estuary. It can be considered the King of the First Growths, having the extraordinary power, structure and presence.

Region

Pauillac, Red Bordeaux

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
