Chateau Latour's 1995 comes from an excellent Bordeaux vintage which produced classic age-worthy Bordeaux from the left bank's first growths.

Chateau Latour needs no introduction – a world famous brand whose label commands huge respect and often price tags to match. But there is more to this great first growth than its hugely marketable name and label.

Latour is probably the most consistent of the Médoc's first growths in terms of quality. Even in tough Bordeaux vintages it manages to create wines that put many of its Bordeaux neighbors in the shade, and in doing so, Latour has justly earned its reputation among many critics as being the Médoc's finest wine.

"I have been blown away by this wine on recent occasions, and all of my hopes for it being a prodigious example of Latour after bottling have proven to be correct...What a fabulous, profound wine this has turned out to be. It is unquestionably one of the great wines of the vintage…a knock-out nose of chocolate, walnuts, minerals, spice, and blackberry and cassis fruit. Exceptionally full-bodied, with exhilarating level of glycerin, richness, and personalit It is a fabulous Latour that should age effortlessly for 40-50 years." Robert Parker
