"The 2017 Pauillac de Château Latour is such a beautiful wine. Lush, pliant and supple, with pretty top notes, the 2017 is pure class. Sweet red plum, spice, leather, cedar and tobacco are some of the many nuances that grace the exquisite Pauillac of Château Latour. All the elements fall into place in a wine of total breeding. Drink 2022-2032"
Antonio Galloni, vinous.com (March 2020), March 2020
This wine has been made every year since 1989, and was developed primarily for the restaurant market.
The Pauillac is made primarily from young vines, growing on the less prestigious terroirs in the vineyard, and from wines that do not meet the selection criteria for Forts de Latour (specific to each vintage).
About 20% new barrels are used in the vinification of the Pauillac, the precise proportion varying depending on the characteristics of the vintage. The blend for Château Latour’s Pauillac typically consists of nearly 45% Merlot.
This generous, fruity wine is an excellent introduction to the family of wines produced by Château Latour. It can be enjoyed after four to five years of ageing, and will continue to improve for several more years.
