    Located at the heart of the Medoc wine region, the vast majority of Chateau Latour vineyard lies on gravel ridges. The exceptional 2005 vintage produced a fleshy and powerful Pauillac with charming structure and fruit. Chateau Latour is complex on the nose with notable ripe fruits, as wells as silky and racy tannins at the finish: an excellent wine for keep.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    2005 was a very dry, warm and sunny vintage, causing vine stress in some areas of Bordeaux. Harvested from September 26 to October 6, the tannin/IPT levels were very high this year. The 2005 Latour is blended of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. It is the biggest surprise of this tasting--until now, the wine was relatively closed and broody, but today the wine is just starting to reveal its personality--and what a stunner! Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with provocative floral scents of roses and violets over a core of fresh blackcurrants, chocolate-covered cherries and black raspberries with hints of fertile loam, unsmoked cigars and black tea. Medium to full-bodied, firm, grainy and packed with muscular fruit, it has an epically long, savory finish sparked by floral notes. 12,000 cases were made.
