Chateau Latour, 1er Grand Cru Classé Pauillac, Bordeaux, France, 2005

Grapes: A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot, gravel soil, 60 year old vines, matured in French oak barrels

Chateau Tasting Note:

The 2005 vintage demonstrates the superiority of the Cabernet Sauvignon which alone brings body, power, fruit and structure. A wine of great complexity, we note at this stage the dominance of very ripe fruit and can fully perceive its enormous power, filled out with sleek, silky tannins. An exceptional vintage.

Critic's Tasting Notes:

"The Château Latour 2005 has an outgoing and ebullient bouquet with blackberries, wild strawberry, minerals and wilted rose petals. It has great intensity and authority, a bouquet that is polished but not over-buffed. The palate is full-bodied with a silky smooth entry. The acidity is beautifully judged, layers of small red cherries, raspberry and cedar, with graphite revealed towards the long and persistent finish with startling architecture. Outstanding." Drink 2020-2060

98/100 points, Neal Martin, Wine Journal, February 2015

"Along with Margaux, another standout 2005. Still closed on the nose, this is a precise, concentrated Latour which has the structure to age effortlessly for a further two (or more) decades. Intense lead-pencil character on the nose with a plush, rich, intense palate of vibrant, dark, concentrated fruit. Extremely glossy tannins and beautifully integrated oak, finishing with a fine, lingering graphite note. A thoroughbred, drinking beautifully already but will age extremely well."

19/20 points, Andy Howard MW,, August 2021
