The Pauillac, 3rd wine of Chateau Latour, was launched in 1973. Since 1990 it has been produced every year on the basis of qualitative selection for Les Forts de Latour (the second wine of Chateau Latour) as well as from young vines from plots outside the Enclos. This wine is quite distinguished and a fine introduction to the Chateau Latour family of wines.
James Suckling (JS): 92
"Juicy and rich, with a velvety tannins. Full and round, with lots of juicy fruit and meat, blackberries and currants. Classified growth quality. Broad shoulder. Third wine of Latour. Better in 2016."
