Pauillac is a brilliant third element to Frederic Engerer`s team at Chateau Latour - a selection finalized after the completion of both the Grand Vin and Les Forts de Latour. This is a wonderful introduction to the legendary Chateau, its terroir and the extraordinary professionalism and skill of the team making these impressive wines.

THE WINE
Very classically styled with potential for ageing in its own right, and a staple of Latour`s production since 1990, Pauillac is genetically more a second wine to the Les Forts de Latour than a third wine. The blends of the two wines consist of a greater percentage of Merlot than Latour, allowing for a softer, rounded texture, and earlier drinking with the Pauillac including both young vines and the press wine.
 

Tasting Note

Nicholas Jackson: "Gentle minty and coffee taste; really good concentration for the vintage. Very Pauillac and very Latour. Very satisfying Left Bank Bordeaux."
