Still holding on to its depth of color. The wine already shows some development with its truffle, oyster shell, cassis, Asian spice, dark red fruits and cherry tones. This is a Latour of elegance, purity of fruit and...

Wine Enthusiast, April 2016

(97–99 points) Barrel Sample. Seriously structured and yet also so smooth, this wine has great concentration and powerful tannins. There is wonderful juiciness here as well as dense, dusty tannins that are never hard...

Decanter, January 2023

Really gorgeous aromatics, so perfumed, acutely aromatic, pristine, clear and precise with tobacco, cocoa, ash and liquorice. Round, heady, a sexy wine, with a lot to say, generous and open, smooth and layered - this...

Aromas of iron, oyster shell, rust and stones with blueberries and blackberries. Full-bodied, yet ever so polished and refined. It rolls off the palate with fruit and salty flavors. Tight, focused and always refined...

Aromatically this floats out of the glass, intense and concentrated but full of light and life. Waves of flavour come at you, from crushed raspberries, pomegrante and blackcurrant to fresher redcurrant and lemongrass set...

The Wine Independent, March 2023

The 2015 Château Latour is a blend of 97.1% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.6% Merlot, and 0.3% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet colored, it requires a considerable amount of shaking to wake up the nose of plum preserves, warm cassis, and...

Wine Spectator, March 2018

This packs some serious warm dark currant, fig and blackberry compote flavors together at the core, with charcoal, singed bay leaf, tobacco and roasted alder notes forming the foundation. Grippy for sure, but there's...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2023

A rich and demonstrative vintage for this estate, the 2015 Latour unfurls in the glass with aromas of dark berries, cassis, loamy soil, espresso roast, pencil shavings and a subtle hint of potpourri. Medium to...

Chateau Latour, one of Bordeaux’s oldest and most famous wine producers, is a First Growth in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. It’s located in Pauillac near the border with Saint-Julien.

Vines have existed on the property since the 14th century, but Chateau Latour first began producing wines of great quality in the early eighteenth century. The estate gradually came to specialize in wine production, with 38 hectares of vines in 1759 and 47 hectares in 1794.

The vineyard currently has 78 hectares in production. The grapes from the 47 hectares surrounding the chateau, known as “L’Enclos”, are used in the production of the Grand Vin. The 30 hectares outside of the Enclos are used for the Forts de Latour and the Pauillac wines. The estate is planted with about 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot on gravelly hilltops and clay subsoil.

The wines of Chateau Latour need time to mature, generally at least ten or fifteen years, before they can be drunk. It is only then that the full complexity of the bouquet is expressed and the palate becomes sufficiently well integrated to be enjoyable and harmonious.

The 2015 Chateau Latour is a Bordeaux Blend from the esteemed Pauillac region of Bordeaux, France. With its rich history and reputation for producing exceptional wines, Chateau Latour is a First Growth estate that consistently delivers wines of the highest quality. This particular vintage showcases the expertise and craftsmanship of the winemakers, resulting in a wine that is truly outstanding.

In the glass, the 2015 Chateau Latour displays a deep, ruby red color that hints at its intensity and complexity. On the nose, aromas of iron, oyster shell, rust, and stones mingle with notes of blueberries and blackberries. This unique combination creates a captivating bouquet that invites further exploration.

On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and exquisitely polished. It rolls off the palate with a seamless grace, revealing layers of fruit and salty flavors. The 97% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend contributes to the wine's brightness and adds a touch of elegance. The tannins are well-integrated, providing structure and balance to the wine's generous fruit profile.

The 2015 Chateau Latour has received high praise from renowned wine critics. James Suckling awarded it an impressive score of 98 points, describing it as refined and always refined, with pretty length. Jeff Leve rated it 99 points, emphasizing its elegance, purity of fruit, and silky texture. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate awarded it 96 points, praising its richness, elegance, and completeness.
