  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

    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.

  • Bordeaux Book(1998) | Rating: 90

    In 1964, as in 1966 and 1967, Latour was the best wine in the Medoc. The 1964 is drinking beautifully now, but it should hold for at least another decade. The bouquet is powerful, spicy, and filled with aromas of minerals, black fruits, and licorice. Rich, round, supple, generous flavors show excellent concentration. Soft tannins and a silky, rich, very long finish make this a sumptuous, even opulent Latour.

Chateau Latour is among the First Growth properties classified in the Bordeaux 1855 Classification. The estate is situated in the southern portion of Pauillac, bordering St. Julien and the Gironde estuary. Latour is considered one of the longest-lasting First Growths, reflecting its high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon. The blend is typically 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The fruit is grown in vineyards with notably high levels of gravel and an ideal southeastern exposure. Latour is typified by its concentrated fruit and complexity. Young vintages are forward and jammy with multiple layers of fruit. Aromas include black-currant, cherry and prune, with a dusty bouquet of mint, leather, cedar, and tobacco. Chateau Latour can age a lifetime and should not be approached for ten to twenty years. Some of the best vintages include 1949, 1959, 1961, 1982, 1990, and 2000. Chateau Latour also produces a second wine called Les Forts de Latour and a third wine labeled simply Pauillac.
