Château Latour is a First Growth wine estate in Pauillac in the Bordeaux region of France. The castle was built in the early 14th century as a home shared by various feudal lords. It played a role in the Hundred Years War, serving as a garrison for the Anglo-Gascon army. But it wasn’t till the 16th century that wine production began there in earnest. In the late 17th and early 18th century, Latour was owned by Alexandre de Ségur, whom Louis XV referred to as “Prince of the Vines.” Before his death in 1716, de Ségur purchased Lafite, and his son Nicolas-Alexandre, then President of Bordeaux, acquired Mouton and Calon in 1718. By the 18th century, peace between England and France meant increased trade with Bordeaux. This elevated the status of the finest French estates, which increased in value significantly as they saw more attention from the nobility. Though Bordeaux saw a lot of damage to estates in the French Revolution and breakups of their ownerships Read more »

  • Grillet does age, JD. At least it used to--haven't had any for a few years now. All my viognier drinking has been French wines, starting in the late '70s, early '80s with vintages going back to the '60s. Grillet was pricey then, but not quite like now and well within reach. It was qualitatively in its own category, almost as much as, say, a d'Yq... Read More

  • Domecq Vino Tinto Cabernet Sauvignon Grenache 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This was an inexpensive wine purchased in los Cabos from the well known Domecq ... under 100 pesos. It's not Chateau Latour, but then again, Chateau Latour doesn't sell for $5. A perfectly pleasant wine, without any disconcerting characteristics. Perhaps a bit light compared to my usual fare (I tend toward Rhone varietals in general) and no... Read More
