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.


The Pauillac is made primarily from young vines. Latour possesses some of the best soils in Bordeaux. Gently sloping, the gravelly surface provides exceptional drainage and consists of both large stones and small pebbles. Beneath this is a moist subsoil composed of marl, chalk and clay.


Since 2009, Château Latour’s teams have begun to reflect on methods of viticulture and understanding and respect for the balance between the vine, the soil and the environment.
Since 2015, the entire Château Latour vineyard has been organically grown. The ECOCERT certification of cellars and winemaking methods is expected in August 2018.


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 50% new, French oak barrels.


Pauillac de 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.
