Considered by many to be the greatest wine of Bordeaux, Latour is absolutely one of the most concentrated, rich, tannic and full-bodied wines in the world, and fought over by global collectors. Planted to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the formidable Latour estate has vines averaging 40+ years, and the estate is situated on the Pauillac/Saint Julien border, immediately north of the walled vineyard of Léoville Las Cases. Latour has a fortress-like tower that overlooks the vineyards and the Gironde River, and dates back to the 17th century.

Wine Spectator"A young wine that electrifies every taste bud in your mouth. Compacted aromas of crushed currants and minerals, with roses and lilacs. Full-bodied, with masses of silky, refined tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Stunning. Best Latour since 1990. "

Wine Advocate"There are only 14,000 cases (only 48% of the crop made it into the grand vin) of the 2000, which flirts with perfection. Truly great stuff, it reveals perfect equilibrium, great finesse, yet colossal size, with a thickness and density that rival the brilliant 1996. This saturated black ruby/purple colored wine seems almost discreet on first inspection, but with aeration, notes of vanilla, exceptionally pure, mineral-infused creme de cassis, and earth emerge. Full-bodied and tannic, it should come close to representing perfection. Latour's 2000 is hard to compare with previous vintages. It obviously does not have the opulence of the 1990 and 1982, yet there is an extraordinary purity, delineation, seamlessness, and freshness to this wine that sets it apart from previous vintages. In any event, it is prodigious, with at least five decades of evolution ahead of it. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2050."
