The estate of 77ha/190acres of vineyard (11ha were acquired in 2005) consists of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon vines, 24% Merlot (increased from 15% in the 1980s), and a very small amount of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, with an average annual production of 30,000 cases of the three wines. Latour’s wines generally require much longer to develop than those of the other first growths, and they often have greater longevity. Despite its close proximity to St-Julien, Latour is the archetypal Pauillac. Its ink-black colour accurately reflects the immense structure and hugely concentrated flavour of the wine. If Lafite is the ultimate example of finesse, then Latour is the ideal illustration of how massive a wine can be, and still have finesse.
