Estate Notes

This bottle of Latour 1947 is in relatively good condition for the year, which was the second of the great three post-war Bordeaux vintages producing rich, voluptuous wines.

Château Latour needs no introduction – a world famous brand whose label commands huge respect and often price tags to match. But there is more to this great first growth than its hugely marketable name and label.

Latour is probably the most consistent of the Médoc's first growths in terms of quality. Even in tough Bordeaux vintages it manages to create wines that put many of its Bordeaux neighbours in the shade, and in doing so, Latour has justly earned its reputation among many critics as being the Médoc's finest wine.


“A Latour that I can inhale throughout the evening and be absolutely content. The nose is seductive and spicy. The wonderful bouquet of flavours carries through on the palate with amazing depth and the finish is very long. The wine beguiles by evolving and changing by the minute in the glass. A multi-dimensional beauty, one with charm as well as grace. A perfect wine." Jeanne Cho Lee MW

"Garnet core with wide amber rim. An open-knit, fleshy nose with notes of creme brulee, black coffee and molasses. Very sweet aromatics. Lovely balance on the palate with fine acidity. Redcurrant, cherry, even a touch of lemon rind. Quite Burgundian on the finish, elegant and refined."
