Located at the heart of the Medoc region, a large portion of Chateau Latour vineyard lies on gravel ridges. The great 2008 Chateau Latour falls within a range the Chateau’s high quality vintages. The pure yet neat wine is harsh, rich, and tight. Surprisingly well balanced, 2008 Chateau Latour shows great ageing potential.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
An extraordinary wine, the classic 2008 Latour (13.5% natural alcohol) is composed of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc (40% of the production made it into the grand vin). Its dense purple color is followed by hints of espresso roast, cassis, burning embers, truffles and graphite. Rich with full-bodied power, beautiful purity and graciousness allied to a voluminous, savory, broad mouthfeel, this beauty will be drinkable in 4-5 years and will keep for three decades.
