Description

Les Forts de Latour is the second wine of Château Latour, the First Growth Pauillac Bordeaux. Like Latour, Les Forts de Latour is owned by French industrialist Francois Pinault. Some 140,000 bottles of Les Forts are produced each year. It is typically 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot and about one-third of the grapes come from young vines within the l’Enclos, which is the 116 acres just around the chateau. The rest of the grapes come from much older vines outside the l’Enclos, meaning that Les Forts de Latour is made from a significant amount of old-vine Cuvee. Les Forts is often highly rated by critics, and Robert M. Parker Jr. has noted that it is “widely regarded as the finest of all the “second wines” and is, in tastings, frequently rated above more famous Pauillacs…"

Review

Very enticing aromas of crushed raspberries, Indian spices and hints of vanilla. Full-bodied, with a refined and tight tannin structure and a long, refreshing finish. A beauty. Second wine of Latour. Best Les Forts in years.
