What is Les Forts de Latour?!
"utterly classical Forts de Latour worth a special effort to seek out"
William Kelley writes about the 2016 Les Forts de Latour. Today, we are making the special effort for you and offering this late release for the lowest price in the US!
The Les Forts de Latour originates from fruit "whose vines benefit from a high average age (around 40 years), synonymous with quality. This is validated as "its quality has resulted in its achieving the level of a Médoc Grand Cru Classé."
Multiple critics have awarded the Les Forts 96 points and RobertParker.com goes on to say, "between the expressive, charming 2017 Le Pauillac de Château Latour; the concentrated, impeccably balanced 2016 Les Forts de Latour; and the deep, introverted, utterly classical 2014 Latour itself, admirers of this estate will find three excellent wines that are cut from very different cloth, and all three are more than worthy of attention."
We have in stock pristine inventory of the current release of the 2016 Les Forts and the 2014 Grand Vin. Now is the time to drink Latour for celebration and collect the Chateau Latour Grand Vin!
2016 Les Forts de Latour
"The 2016 Les Forts de Latour is the clear highlight among these new releases from Latour. The first thing that is evident about the 2016 is the pedigree of the vintage. Undisputedly great. Readers will find a potent, dark Forts de Latour endowed with massive concentration and tons of depth. The 2016 won't be ready to drink anytime soon, but it holds tons of promise. Hints of gravel, sage, licorice and pencil shavings linger. The 2016 was impressive a few years ago. It is even better today." Jan 2022

2009 Latour Grand Vin
"Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Latour is unashamedly youthful with bold blackcurrants, black cherries and warm plums notes plus nuances of cedar chest, aniseed, beef drippings, truffles and tapenade with a waft of tilled black soil. Full, concentrated and powerful in the mouth, it has a rock-solid frame of super ripe, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and wonderfully minerally. Just a baby? this needs time!" Lisa Perrotti-Brown - March 2019

2014 Latour Grand Vin
"The 2014 Latour is one of the very finest wines of a vintage that favored the northern Médoc. Mingling aromas of wild berries and cassis with hints of cigar wrapper, loamy soil, black truffles and classy new oak, it’s full-bodied, rich and concentrated, its broad attack segueing into a deep, tightly wound mid-palate that’s framed by powdery, chalky tannins and bright acids, concluding with a long, mouthwatering finish. This classically balanced, youthfully structured young wine looks set to enjoy prodigious longevity. It’s reminiscent of a modern-day version of a cooler vintage such as 1996, though of course these days maturity is more complete and selection even more rigorous than was the case two decades ago."
