Château Latour

Château Latour (1. Cru) ligger i det sydøstlige Pauillac på grænsen til Saint Julien i Médoc – og ca. 50 km nordvest for byen Bordeaux.

Château Latour producerer tre rødvine: Deres "Grand vin", 1. vinen Château Latour 1. Cru, 2. vinen Les Forts de Latour (produceret siden 1966) samt en 3. vin, der blot hedder Pauillac, som er blevet udgivet hvert år siden 1989.

Château Latour is situated in the heart of the Médoc wine region, about 50 km north-west of Bordeaux, where the legend of the vineyards of Bordeaux began. The Château’s prime terroir, l’Enclos, overlooks the estuary of the Gironde river which, over the centuries, has given the vineyard its geological complexity and, on a daily basis, ensures a mild climate. In the years since 1993, under the leadership of the Pinault family, the estate’s owner, significant changes have been made with a view to maintaining Château Latour’s pursuit of excellence in the wines that it produces.

The second wine, Les Forts de Latour, takes its name from an historic plot in the "Enclos". The wine was first labelled with this name in 1966. Les Forts de Latour is produced with the same meticulous care as the Grand Vin, both in the vineyard and in the winery. The only notable difference, apart from the origin of the grapes, is the proportion of new barrels used in the maturing stage.

Starting in 2008, Château Latour began using horses to churn the soils in select parcels of vines. Currently, 7 horses are used to work the l’Enclos vineyard. Sustainable farming is stressed at Château Latour. In 2013, 24 ha were being farmed using biodynamic techniques while 7 ha were organically farmed. Starting with the 2015 vintage, the entire Enclos vineyard is farmed using 100 % organic techniques and 50 % of the vines are being farmed using biodynamic techniques. This means that to fight disease, they rely on a myriad of different plants, copper and sulfur, which are all found in nature. All fertilizers are 100 % organic.
In 2019, the entire vineyard of Latour was certified as being 100 % organic. That makes a huge statement in Bordeaux.
