Upon opening, the wine is black, opaque, mysterious. The nose elicits the first responses. It doesn’t deliver all of its secrets immediately, it needs a little time but we feel the elegance, the richness, the minerality and the black fruits, all enrobed in fine, exotic essences. The mouth is very concentrated, rich, perfectly balanced, subtle and long. What a pleasure!

Still lively and full, this rich, fully mature wine has at least 15-20 more years of longevity. The dark opaque garnetpurple color is followed by Latour's classic nose of minerals, walnuts, and cassis. Full-bodied, concentrated, and rich, the 1964 Latour is clearly the Pauillac of the vintage. In what was a dreadful year for many Medocs, this is unquestionably a great success.

Considered the best from a difficult vintage, this wine is mature now, with open smoke, mineral and gamelike aromas and fading but still elegant flavors of cedar and chocolate.

Château Latour is ranked Premier Cru Classé in the Official Classification created in 1855.


There are 2 other Châteaux in the Pauillac appellation which also benefit from the prestigious title of 1er Cru Classé: Lafite Rothschild and Mouton Rothschild


Latour is the epitome of excellence in good years and bad ones. Among the greatest vintages, the most beautiful achievements of the chateau: 1920, 1929, 1949, 1955, 1959, 1961, 1970, 1982, 1990, 2000.


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 ...
