Characteristics of Les Forts de Latour

Les Forts de Latour is a barrel-aged red wine made by the prestigious Chateau Latour winery with the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot varieties in the AOC Pauillac denomination (Bordeaux).

Founded in 1680, Château Latour is a French wine estate that, having been owned by various different people, now belongs to the French businessman François Pinault. It is a renowned winery located in an unrivalled location 300 metres from the Gironde River, in the Médoc region, classified as premier cru. A noble terroir that produces three types of wine: Grand vin, Les Forts de Latour and Pauillac.

Les Forts de Latour comes from three different plots. Some of the grapes come from the edge of the estate, others from particular Grand Vin plots and some from plots outside the estate. These vineyards have an average age of 40 years and are planted in clay soils with magnificent layers of deep gravel. This terroir has very good natural drainage and, thanks to the river, it avoids excessively high or low temperatures. Respectful agriculture is used and the harvest is carried out manually when the grapes reach optimum ripeness.

In the winery, the Les Forts de Latour grapes are classified on a selection table, destemmed and gently pressed. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Finally, between 50 and 60% of the wine ages in new French oak barrels.  

Château Latour’s second wine stands out for its intense expression, which is down to most of the raw material coming from the same place as the prestigious Grand Vin made by this Médoc winery.
