Les FORTS de LATOUR Second wine from Château Latour 2009 bottle 75cl

bottle 75cl: 259,17 €bottle 75cl

The young vines of Latour being reserved for the simple 'Pauillac' of the estate, the second wine, Les Forts de Latour, can be qualified as a great wine in its own right, coming from the plots of land outside the enclosure of Château Latour.

Rated 91/100 by Neal Martin (Vinous) in March 2018 « The palate is clean and fresh with very fine, almost edgy tannins. The precision here is undeniable, a tensile Les Forts de Latour that similar to many 2012s has blossomed during its bottle maturation. There is a mote of signature Pauillac mintiness that pop up towards the persistent finish. »

    Rated 93/100 by Neal Martin in April 2020 « Clearly a Les Forts that is primed for drinking, although there is sufficient depth to suggest that it will give 15 years of pleasure, maybe more. Suave and surprisingly rounded for a 2014 ».

    At the very south of Pauillac, next to Saint-Julien, Latour combines the qualities of both appellations: the power and firmness of Pauillac with the velvety and roundness of Saint-Julien. Since 2012, Latour no longer sells its wines as Futures but only after 6 to 10 years of ageing in its cellars.

    Rated 96/100 by Neal Martin (Vinous) in April 2020 « The 2012 demands a few minutes to really coalesce and achieve the precision and pixelation that have been the hallmark of this Grand Vin in its youth. [...] If you want my advice, cellar the 2012 for another five or six years to witness it in full flight. It has always been a candidate for wine of the vintage... just have a bit of patience. »
