Chateau Latour 2008, Pauillac 750ml
Chateau Latour is a wine estate located 300 metres from the Gironde River, in the Médoc region. It is located in one of the legendary Bordeaux grand cru areas because of its exceptional quality. A most noble soil that creates three types of wine that are characterised by being balanced, powerful, elegant and very silky: Grand vin, Les Forts de Latour and Pauillac.
Pauillac de Chateau Latour is mainly made from young vines. Strains planted in clay soils with magnificent layers of deep gravels that allow natural drainage. They use environmentally respectful agriculture and the harvest is carried out manually when the grapes reach optimum ripeness.
To make Pauillac by Chateau Latour, the grapes are destemmed and pressed, then left to ferment in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Afterwards, about 20% of the wine ages in new French oak barrels.
Pauillac de Chateau Latour is the third wine from the famous Château Latour. A wine that has been produced every year since 1989 and is thought of as a fruity, gourmet wine that is the perfect introduction to the Château Latour family.
Chateau Latour 2008, a very classic, pure, well-defined vintage. On the border between the 2004 and the 2006, it joins a beautiful series of very good quality vintages. This classicism is obviously best expressed in the Grand Vin, which is severe but also rich and intense. A great deal of class and nobility in this wine. Château Latour is one of Bordeaux's - and the world's - most famous wine producers. Situated in the southeast corner of the Pauillac commune on the border of Saint-Julien, in the Médoc region. Rated as a First Growth in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification, it has become one of the most sought-after and expensive wine producers on the planet, and produces powerfully structured Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant wines capable of lasting many decades.
