Chateau Latour 2000 is a sensational Bordeaux from a great vintage, which will reward your patience in the cellar.

The name Latour, derived from the cream-coloured tower that stands in the centre of the impressive vineyard (and more famously on the label), is a classic symbol of Bordeaux dating back to the 14th century. Latour produces intense, rich and powerful style Bordeaux, with firm tannins that ensure a good age in bottle.

" Truly great stuff, it reveals perfect equilibrium, great finesse, yet colossal size, with a thickness and density that rival the brilliant 1996. This saturated black ruby/purple colored wine seems almost discreet on first inspection, but with aeration, notes of vanilla, exceptionally pure, mineral-infused creme de cassis, and earth emerge. Full-bodied and tannic, it should come close to representing perfection. Latour's 2000 is hard to compare with previous vintages...an extraordinary purity, delineation, seamlessness, and freshness to this wine that sets it apart from previous vintages." eRobertParker.com

"Latour has made truly great wines in the past two decades—and this is one of the best. It has fabulous aromas of black truffles, currants, raspberry and dried flowers. Mind-blowing on the palate, it’s an emotional and soulful red. " James Suckling
