Chateau Latour

Premier GRAND CRU CLASSE (First Classified growth)

Located in the famous Medoc wine region, about 40 kilometers north-west of the city of Bordeaux, the vineyard of Château Latour belongs to the Pauillac appellation.

An old Medocain proverb says that "only the vines that overlook the water are capable of producing wines of great quality". It is this very privileged setting, located only 300 meters from the Gironde river that bestows all its uniqueness upon the Château Latour wine.
