Located at the heart of the Medoc region, a large portion of Chateau Latour vineyard lies on gravel ridges. The 2007 vintage offers delectable bursting fruit flavours, neat yet rich. Perfectly balanced, smooth, delicate tannins. This 2007 Chateau Latour is certainly a strong Pauillac wine with a familiar style. A few years in the cellar are required before enjoying this fine Grand Cru.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at BI Wine Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Latour was late-released last year, and I reviewed it at that time. This bottle reaffirmed my remarks from a few months ago albeit here within the context of all the other First Growth. I noticed that it has slightly more intensity than the Lafite-Rothschild, a touch of menthol infusing the black fruit, certainly more exotic than the Lafite or Mouton with that subtle hint of black olive. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is good muscle and weight to this Latour, with impressive tension and energy on the saline finish. It will drink well over the next 15 years, possibly longer. Tasted February 2017.
