Chateau LATOUR Pauillac "Les Forts De Latour" 2008
Wine Region: Bordeaux - France

Tasting notes: The beautiful dark and strong coloured 2008 Les Forts de Latour reveals a fine, ripe and deep nose. The wine carries a very noble and pure fruit vibrancy that deliciously and smoothly persists.
About the Winery: Chateau Latour can trace its history to the 14th century when the original tower was constructed on the estate by Gaucelme de Castillon during the Hundred Years War. The ancient Pauillac estate is among the four of the Medoc vineyards designated as a first growth in the classification of 1855 and today is owned by Francois Pinault's through his holding company, Artemis. The 78-hectare vineyard of Latour rests on an extraordinary terroir and is planted with 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 2% of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
