Chateau Latour 2001 Chateau Latour
Château Latour is a 65-hectare vineyard located in the Médoc, in the commune of Pauillac, which benefits from the appellation of controlled origin of the same name. It is a "premier grand cru" of the Pauillac vineyard according to the official classification of Bordeaux wines of 1855. It shares this rare appellation with Château Margaux, Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Mouton Rothschild and Château Haut-Brion. On a unique terroir where Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) can develop fully and give the wine its characteristic concentration, colour and tannic structure, Merlot (20%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (1%) give it its soul. The "Grand Vin" of Château Latour comes only from the 47 hectares of the property's historic enclosure. This unique terroir is the only one capable of bringing, with each vintage, depth, elegance and concentration worthy of what one expects from a great wine.
