2014 Pauillac De Latour 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 88 points
Drink by: 2018 - 2025
Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2014 Le Pauillac de Château Latour leaps from the glass with raspberry pie, kirsch and blackberry preserves scents followed by more serious notions of cigar box, tilled soil, fallen leaves and blackcurrant pastilles. Medium-bodied, refreshing and mineral laced, with a chewy frame, it has plenty of savory layers and an herbal lift on the finish. The blend here is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot.
In the year since 1993, under the leadership of Francois Pinault, significant changes have been made with a view of upholding Chateau Latour's pursuit of excellence in the wines that it produces. A total renovation of the winery, vat room, wine making facilities and storage areas enabled even greater precision in the production of the wines. A new technical team was also created. In 2012, the estate undertook further work to enlarge the workspace and create a new ageing cellar. Pauillac de Latour has been made every year since 1989, and was developed primarily for the restaurant market.
