Estate Notes

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

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.

Reviews

"...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.” eRobertParker.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
