Why Buy Me
This is the third wine of Château Latour and was first produced in 1989 primarily for the restaurant market. But it is a wonderful way to experience the style of Château Latour. It is made from younger vines and typically consists of at least 45% Merlot.
From an exceptional vintage this wine gives an amazing introduction to Château Latour. It is a glorious opulent wine with silky tannins. Classic flavours of blackcurrant, cedar and woodland abound. It is rich and full-bodied. Should drink well until 2028.
93 Points Robert Parker “The best Pauillac I ever tasted (and this wine has been a revelation ever since they first introduced it), the 2010 from Latour represents 24% of their production. It is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44.5% Merlot and .5% Cabernet Franc. An amazingly opulent, round, delicious wine, and a great buy when they finally release it – assuming it comes in under a three-digit price – it possesses wonderfully silky tannins, classic black currant, cedar wood and forest floor notes, and rich, full-bodied opulence as well as a terrific purity and palate presence.”
