(12-1997) Assertive, but less harmonious than nearby vintages, this firm, medium-bodied wine offers earth, iodine and cherry flavors. Eccentric but interesting.

(1994) The 1948 boasts a forceful, exotic nose of mint, cassis, walnuts and leather that jumps from the glass.

Two other bottles revealed a more inky color and greater flavor depth and richness.

Created around 1680, Château Latour's vineyard is one of the oldest in the Médoc. At the heart of the estate, the main parcel, called "l'Enclos", is made up of 47 hectares of old vines that are preciously maintained, because only they are able to give birth to the "Grand Vin". The 18 hectares of exterior plots, the vines less than 10 years old and the possibly downgraded cuvées produce the second wine of the estate, "Les Forts de Latour". The wine of Château Latour is an example of regularity regardless of the quality of the vintage. Firm, tannic and concentrated in its youth ...
