Le Pauillac de Chateau Latour 2017

Latour

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 92.0

The Pauillac has been made every year since 1989. This wine is made primarily from young vines, growing on the slightly less prestigious terroirs in the vineyard. About 20% new barrels are used in the vinification of the Pauillac, the precise proportion varying depending on the characteristics of the vintage. The blend for Château Latour’s Pauillac typically consists of nearly 45% Merlot. This generous, fruity wine is an excellent introduction to the family of wines produced by Château Latour. It can be enjoyed after four to five years of ageing, and will continue to improve for several more years.

A blend of 52.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39.9% Merlot and 7.2% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Le Pauillac de Château Latour is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and comes bounding out of the glass with youthful, energetic notions of ripe black plums, freshly crushed blackcurrants and chocolate-covered cherries with touches of pencil lead, cloves, camphor and smoked meats. Medium-bodied, the palate practically quivers with tension, featuring vibrant red and black fruits and soft, grainy tannins, finishing with fantastic freshness.

Julia Harding MW

52.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39.9% Merlot, 7.2% Petit Verdot. 24.3% of total production. Deep crimson with purple rim. Delicately fragrant with dark-red fruit. Lots of juicy black fruit and real finesse here for the Pauillac. Fine but defined tannins and lovely freshness. Lots of energy and a long juicy finish. (JH)
