Château Latour's 2004 is in good condition, comes in its original tissues, and is crafted in the classically elegant Bordeaux style.

Château 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 fine red 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.

The name Latour, derived from the cream-coloured tower that stands in the centre of the impressive vineyard, is a classic symbol of Bordeaux dating back to the 14th century. Latour produces rich, intense and powerful fine red Bordeaux, with firm tannins that ensure good bottle age.

"...one of the finest Left Bank wines of the vintage. It has that quintessential graphite-scented bouquet intermixed with blackberry and cedar, although the liquorice note that I observed previously has receded. Again, there is wonderful definition. The palate is full-bodied but surprisingly more sultry than I expected, especially here where I was able to directly compare it with the other 2004 First Growths." robertparker.com

"Classic aromas of currant, plum, graphite and minerals. Suave and smooth in the mouth, with a compelling sweetness and lushness for the vintage. At once easygoing and wonderfully complex, conveying a powerful soil character. The finish is ripely tannic, sweet and very long." Stephen Tanzer
