ESTATE HISTORY 

The history of Château Latour brings us back to the year 1331. In fact, the Château’s archives mention Latour from the 14th century. The oldest document is also an authorization granted to Gaucelme de Castillon by Lord Pons to build a fortified tower in the parish of Saint Maubert. Then, century after century the functions of Latour changed. Sometimes co-lordship, sometimes property of the Mullet family, Château Latour was only acquired by Alexandre de Segur in the 18th century. Remember, Alexandre de Segur also owned the Calon Ségur and Lafite at that time. Since then, the estate has continued to develop until becoming the property of François Pinault in 1993. It is under its will that significant changes was made over the years to pursue the quest for excellence of wines produced by Château Latour.

TERROIR

The heart of the Enclos is the only terroir that, every year, can produce the depth, elegance and concentration that we expect of the Grand Vin. It is here that the Cabernet Sauvignon can achieve optimal expression in terms of colour, richness and freshness. 

The vineyard of Château Latour is located in its majority on gravelly ridges which dominate from 12 to 16 meters the estuary of the Gironde. The historical terroir, called l’Enclos, is divided into two large families: the clayey gravels in its heart and the gravelly sands on the perimeter.

VITICULTURE

Château Latour’s Grand Vin is made exclusively from “vieilles vignes”, an average of 60 years-old, in the Enclos. Gravettes, Sarmentier, Pièce de Château... these are the names of some of the finest plots that express the character of the terroir and forge the wine’s identity every year.

WINEMAKING

Vinification takes place in 80 temperature-controlled, stainless steel vats that vary in size from as small as 12 hectoliters up to 164 hectoliters.
Malolactic fermentation takes place in vat. Since the cellars were last renovated in 2001, everything in the cellar moves by gravity flow. Chateau Latour is aged in 100% new, French oak barrels.

TASTING & FOOD PAIRINGS

Château Latour is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Chateau Latour is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
