CHATEAU LATOUR 1er cru classe, Pauillac 2000

The formidable fortress depicted on the famed vanilla Latour label was built to withstand the Gironde pirate attacks of the 15th Century. And, truly, as well as the tower still stands, so does Latour and its consistent excellence – regardless of vintage. <br><br> Nominally Pauillac, this First Growth sits almost astride the border of St. Julien and its output – as one would expect – is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon with 10 per cent awarded to both Merlot and Cabernet Franc. <br><br> Any experience with Latour is to be savoured with patience – this notoriously slow-developing wine requires at least a decade or two’s development. But the reward for this patience is a fulsome melange of power, finesse, depth and tone.

Region Pauillac

Pauillac is Bordeaux’s most acclaimed appellation, the only one with three Premier Cru properties: Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château Mouton-Rothschild and Château Latour. These and other Pauillac chateaux produce robust, full-flavored and long-lived red wines made from Cabernet-based blends. Though winemaking techniques and microclimates vary throughout Pauillac, producing some variations in style, classic Pauillac wines have juicy flavours of blackcurrant and cedar, often with coffee, chocolate and graphite notes. Pauillac, part of the Médoc region on Bordeaux’s Left Bank, has gravelly and well-drained soils that force vines to grow long and strong roots. Struggling a bit for water, the vines produce grapes with high tannins and concentrated juices. Nearby rivers and the Atlantic Ocean modulate temperatures, preventing the grapes from ripening too quickly. Such grapes make powerful wines that may age and improve for decades.

However, in Pauillac, as in other old-world wine regions, some winemakers are working to develop softer red wines that maintain the local wines’ traditional substance and flavours, but are more approachable immediately upon release.
