Chateau Latour Reviews  

97 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

Cellar Selection

“Big tannins and impressive fruits are the hallmarks of this impressive wine. It is also subtle, not showing all its flavors at once, hiding beneath tannins and structure. For this fruity vintage, it shows a strong sense of direct, solid structure, only allowing the strong black plum and berry flavors to come through slowly. It is for the long haul, so don’t drink before 2022, even better later.”

96 Pointz Wine Spectator


“This has a gorgeous core of steeped plum, boysenberry, and black currant coulis flavors, backed by a prominent graphite note that drives through the lengthy finish, where extra hints of anise and sweet tobacco flitter in the background. Regal.”

95 Pointz James Suckling

“The nose is complex, featuring smoke, meat, and hints of wood, with currants, olives and berries underneath. Full body with super-velvety tannins. The strong acidity gives the wine an edginess. Love the spicy, subtly fruity finish. Steely.”

95 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“The nose demands coaxing from the glass with introspective dark berry fruit, mineral, graphite, and just a hint of cedar. The palate is classic Latour with tensile tannins in the driving seat and the fruit residing in the passenger. It has finely tuned acidity that lends it freshness and tension. There is superb minerality towards the finish but it retains that strictness and focus without blinking. If you love Latour, you will love the 2011.” 

95 Pointz Vinous

“The 2011 Latour is well-defined on the nose with blackberry, bilberry, cedar, hoisin, and a touch of mint. There is impressive intensity here, regal and convincing. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins. There is a solid backbone to this wine, plenty of freshness, quite powerful towards the finish with superb persistence. Wonderful. Tasted blind at the annual 10-Year-On tasting.”

97 Pointz Decanter

“A delicious wine that stands out from many in the vintage. A ton of personality, with a sappy, raspberry, autumnal berry fruit as it opens and travels through the palate, with rose petals on the edge that give a beautiful uplift along with the classic trace of mint. Its tannins are a little more angular than you find in the 2010 and 2009, but it is starting to lengthen and open, although this was a vintage that was not immediately impressive in the way that the previous two had been. A stately Latour, one that needs another few years to really show its place. The last Latour to be sold en primeur in the old system. 34% of overall production.”

18+/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson.

“Tasted blind. Very deep crimson. Lighter nose than some – more high toned. Rich and dense, this wine really grew in the mouth. But tannins were lighter than in some. Attractive savoury finish.”
