Winemakers Note

Château Latour is situated in the heart of the Médoc wine region, about 50 km north-west of Bordeaux, where the legend of Bordeaux vineyards began. The Château’s prime terroir, l’Enclos, overlooks the Estuary Gironde 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 VINTAGE After a mild and wet winter, warm conditions in March led to an early bud break: the Merlot on 21st March and the Cabernet Sauvignon 31st March. The weather was fine and summery in April and May, but rainy episodes after 19th May increased disease pressure. Fortunately, good weather in June was beneficial for the flowering with the Merlot in bloom on 2nd June and the Cabernet Sauvignon on 5th June. July was cooler than normal with regular rainfall which meant our team in the vineyard had to be extra vigilant to prevent the spread of fungal diseases. Even though temperatures increased after 15th July, our team remained under pressure until the Merlot berries changed colour on 6th August and the Cabernet Sauvignon on 9th August. Thanks to hot and dry weather in August and September, the berries ripened gradually and uniformly until harvest. TASTING NOTE Dark and intense in colour. The nose is a heady mix of ripe red fruits, roasted sweet spice and perfumed violet notes. Silky smooth yet powerful on the palate, this Château Latour 2014 is a full-bodied wine with fabulous energy and a lovely, lingering finale. 90 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 9,25 % Merlot, 0,5 % cabernet franc, 0,25 % petit verdot
