About:  Les Forts de Latour takes its name from an historic plot in the Enclos. The wine was first labelled with this name in 1966 and constant work on developing its quality has resulted in its achieving the level of a Médoc Grand Cru Classé.

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 (50 to 60%) used in the maturing stage.

The blend for Forts de Latour can vary from one year to the next but there is always a higher proportion of Merlot (25 to 30%) compared to the Grand Vin.

Tasting notes:   Unbelieveably a second wine! Imperious.  Garnet in colour with medium body, this is dry, elegant and slightly earthy.  It sings with finesse and elegance.  A mix on flavours boysenberry, tapenade and a hint of spice which develops after a couple of hours to more juicy blueberries, herbs and a long earthy finish.  Simply stunning!

Drink now but best to lay down for a little longer.
