Pauillac de Latour | Latour's baby brother

Pauillac’s majestic First Growth estate Ch. Latour no longer participates in the En Primeur system. Instead, it releases its wines after a period of bottle ageing, when the Château team feel the wines are beginning to drink beautifully.

What better way to show off the strength in this policy than this wonderful selection of 3 vintages from the great estate’s 3rd wine: Pauillac de Latour

These wines highlight the breeding of the Grand Vin, expressing the expertise of Ch. Latour’s vineyard management and wine making team. They have created wines with all the polish we associate with the estate and a true sense of Pauillac power, but, crucially, a youthful approachability and a price to match.

We also have small parcels of the 2015 and 2016 vintages. Please get in touch to request an allocation.

    Goedhuis, February 2022

    45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 54% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc this is a wine which belies the reputation of the 2013 vintage. A bright crimson colour, a developed scent of truffle and gamey characters, with a hint of fresh tobacco. Not a powerful wine, but possesses a feeling of richness, the tannins behind provide a granular edge and touch of substance, and the finish is one of sweet mature fruit.

    Medium garnet in color, the 2013 Le Pauillac de Château Latour—a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 54% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc—offers up notions of baked cherries, warm mulberries and plum preserves with touches of spice cake and dusty soil. Medium-bodied, soft, juicy and with loads of red and black fruit preserves flavors, it finishes on a refreshing earthy note.

    Soft, velvety and easy with pleasant berry and coffee character. Medium body and a fresh finish. Drink now.

    Goedhuis, April 2015

    Deep opaque colour. An amazing intensity of dark currants and feeling of fresh vibrant cabernet sauvignon fruit. The first attack is of a silky undertone of fruit prior to the structure and texture evolving and building in the palate. An absolute star showing amongst the wines from this vintage both en primeur and during the Southwold tastings, it has a controlled boldness, sweet herbal fruit characters, the tannins sit positively within the wine and the tremendous persistence on the finish completes a perfect example of this great 1st growth. This is a wine of huge stature.

    The 2014 Latour has a backward and austere bouquet that does not respond to coaxing from the glass. This is so broody and sultry, only reluctantly eking out pencil shaving and sous-bois aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, finely judged acidity, quite dense and “solid” at the moment and yet there is elegance and stylishness to spare here. It just needs to manifest more charm and personality à la Mouton-Rothschild, but do not under-estimate this Latour whenever it is released. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

    The 2014 Latour captures the personality of the year in its linear, lithe construction. It's a decidedly understated Latour that is more about finesse than brawn. Bright red cherry/plum fruit, spice, mint and sweet tobacco open over time, but at this level, wines are more about a feel, an expression of place and a vintage. The 2014 Latour embodies all the best this cool, late-ripening growing season had to offer. I loved the 2014 when it was first shown, about five years ago, and I love it today. It is a super-classic Pauillac.

    The depth, power and just sheer confidence of Latour shines through. This is an extremely classic 2014 - everything in focus, with clarity, grip and poise, sculpted blackcurrant and blackberry fruits, touches of raspberry leaf and crushed rocks. Cabernet Sauvignon dominant, still strict and muscular in its tannins, with heft and width through the palate. As it opens graphite, violet and campfire smoke curls through the centre of the wine, along with slow and steady waves of saffron and sage spice. Easily one of the wines of the vintage, and one to take your time with, allowing the slow progression of flavours and textures to unroll at their own pace. It will benefit from another few years in bottle before really getting underway, and has decades ahead. Eric Boissenot consultant, Hélène Génin technical director. Harvest September 18 September to October 15.

    Goedhuis, February 2022

    A broad and structured wine, showing off the combination of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. A combination of fresh currants and bramble fruits, this is polished on the palate with hints of eucalyptus and spice. The initial fresh crispness of fruit recedes as the overall breadth and weight of the wine builds in the palate. Excellent structure and has a feeling of real class.

    (52.4 Cabernet Sauvignon, 41.7 Merlot, 4.1 Petit Verdot) | 13.5% alc. | IPT 65. | 30% of production. In the time-honoured Pauillac de Latour style, this wine is taut, unyielding, firm and it isn’t giving much away. The impression is more of a red-fruited wine than a black style and this is borne out by the significant percentage of Merlot in the blend. It is a finer build than in years past and this serves to lengthen the finish rather than bulk out the mid-palate. The flavour is mildly exotic and aside from the tannins which are admittedly very firm, this seems to be a more tender, cherry-driven wine which will live for a long time and soften into a blushing beauty.

    Deep crimson, colour remarkably similar to the grand vin and Forts. Not much nose. Lots of press wine. Really rather fresh and sweet and Latour-like but a bit awkward and astringent on the finish. Lots of vigour though. Clean as a whistle. Dry finish for the moment. Drink 2022-2029

    Not bad for a third wine! This saw more new oak than usual because of the quality of the grapes. Perfumed cassis and bramble fruit is supported by firmish tannnins and taut acidity. One to tuck away for a while, which is just what Latour does these days. Drink: 2020-28
