Estate Notes

Château Latour 1964 was the Médoc's best wine in a tricky Bordeaux vintage.

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.


"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." Wine Spectator
