First Growth New Release: Château Latour

Victor Rabot |
Sotheby’s Wine is pleased to offer the latest release of Château Latour, including the 2017 Grand Vin and 2018 Les Forts de Latour. Both wines have been well received by trusted critics who had the opportunity to have tasted them earlier this year.

Please see below tasting notes from the winery:


Grand Vin de Latour 2017

Château Latour 2017 has a magnificent aromatic spectrum of black cherry and blackcurrant combined with fresher notes of chalk, tobacco and olive. Precise, structured tannins on a dense, deep palate make this a powerful wine with energy and balance that convey refinement and freshness.

Les Forts de Latour 2018

Heady aromas of dark fruits, violet petals and pencil lead bestrewed with sweet spices and liquorice. This is an exhilarating wine, powerfully structured with present but fine-grained tannins, concentrated flavours and an acidity bringing a full and elegant finish to the mouth.

Please note, wines are still at the property and are expected to arrive in early fall in New York. Latour 2017 is available in OWC of 1, 3 and 6; Forts de Latour is only offered in cases of 6.

We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to get your hands on this limited release from the Château at a very attractive price.
