The 2009 Les Forts de Latour Pauillac 1.5 L is from the Pauillac region of Bordeaux. Chateau Latour is situated at the southeastern tip of Pauillac, in the Medoc region of Bordeaux. Along with its Grand Vin label, Latour also produces Les Forts de Latour as a second wine and “Le Pauillac” as a third wine. While the written history of the Latour terroir dates back to 1331, thriving vineyards, as we know of Latour today, didn’t take hold until about 1700. Land owners and winemakers have changed many times, but the demand for this premium wine has remained of the upmost highest echelon for the past 300 years. In fact, even in 1767 the price of a barrel of Latour was 20 times more expensive than a typical Bordeaux wine. Their ability to achieve excellence remains consistent, as evidenced by their high ratings and high demand.

Very deep purple-black in color, this wine has aromas of creme de cassis, cinnamon toast, dark chocolate and vanilla pod. Medium to full bodied, rich and expressively fruity already, it has a medium to firm level of velvety tannins and a long finish.- Lisa Brown (11/2012)

Ruby-red. Pungently fragrant aromas of blackcurrant and cedar complicated by quinine and bay leaf. Rich, dense and suave, with rather brooding flavors of blackberry, plum liqueur, aromatic herbs and forest floor. This has shut down since the Primeurs and will need patience. Lacks only the generosity of the grand vin but should be outstanding. And it's a remarkable second wine.- Stephen Tanzer (07/2012)
