The oldest document mentioning Latour dates from 1331 and is an authorization granted to Gaucelme de Castillon by Lord Pons to build a fortified tower in the parish of Saint Maubert. Château Latour then appears in the Jean Froissart's « Chronicles » in 1378. This was the time of the Hundred Years War and the « Tour de Saint Maubert » was a fortress to guard the estuary, manned by Breton soldiers for the King of France. After a three-day siege, the Anglo-Gascon army seized the fortress and installed a garrison.
Vineyard workers, horse handlers, and tractor drivers are busy all through the year tending the 800,000 vines that makeup Château Latour's vineyard. Meticulous care and rigorous expertise accompany every step of the vine’s growth cycle in preparation of the birth of a great wine.
Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Latour is unashamedly youthful with bold blackcurrants, black cherries and warm plums notes plus nuances of cedar chest, aniseed, beef drippings, truffles and tapenade with a waft of tilled black soil.
Full, concentrated and powerful in the mouth, it has a rock-solid frame of super-ripe, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and wonderfully minerally.
