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 »

  • The reverb must has resonated in Seattle, DV.  I wasn't that lonely, actually; I had a lot of 2016 Bordeaux to keep me company (LOL).  In fact (yes, its another one!) I had two Bordeaux last night with friends... The Latour-Martillac (Pessac-Leognan) - an old holding of the venerable Kressman family (since the 1920's).  You don't hear much about... Read More

  • Chateau Latour Martillac 2016

    Snoothrank:

    This wine shows deep, black cherry in the glass with excellent viscosity on the rim; bouquet is a fine admixture of blackberry (mure), cedar and bright, sweet cherry. Entry is densely packed with grainy red and black fruit such as blackberry but topped with herbs such as dill. The finish suggests vanilla-oak, but soft and already quite integra... Read More

  • Grand Vin de Chateau Latour 1974

    Snoothrank:

    Gift from an exceptional friend. Just dumbfounded. Never had a wine from a first growth French Vineyard before. Uncorked the bottle at my eldest granddaughters first communion party in Texas. After 44 years the cork had almost bled through and it broke upon opening. I decanted it and aerated it. Almost no sediment in the bottle. The wine was an... Read More

  • Latour Martillac Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The 2014 Latour-Martillac has a nose of cake spice and lemon oil with a hint of grassy mint. On entry, we have a deep, spicy herbaceous kind of fruit - like wild gooseberry, perhaps. The length is quite substantial, with some heat on the finish. A very good wine if perhaps a bit acidic (good with food, though). 90. Read More
