 To harvest the grapes in the field cultivation density 1 ha per 10000 very high and high-quality production will reduce. In addition, saplings every year, Withers, hurt has replanted young trees. This technology is called "complantation (Complantation)" the readjustment of production and quality. Young trees in these parcels were transplanted with different signs, harvesting takes place in the old tree.
 To banish the predators of the grapes, then pulled out the tree on the average age of too high or replant the entire parcel, considering transplanting an overall increase in variation in the trees in the plot and soil again giving a vitality, let rest for 5 years. Are present in grape harm (calculation of predators, disease cycles, etc.) and accurate analysis by Rutt Redzone (dealing with pesticides).

 Carried in the tank then slowly squeeze, alcoholic fermentation begins. Tank and cooled by water while the temperature control and wine over about three weeks the fermentation. Wine from Mar (= milking grounds. Mainly grape skins and seeds) except for the clarification after a tank change moved. 2: fermentation (malolactic fermentation) is done in the next month, softer wines have depth and finesse. Brewing facility was renewed in 2001, now 66 stainless steel fermentation tanks. This number is three times previously. By the increase in the number of tanks to ferment grapes parcels per can, according to the type of vines, grapes, terroir and plot area, 12 hl ~ 170 hl size tank is brewing.

Robert Parker Jr. " Bordeaux, 3rd Edition.
 Latour lies just north of the vineyards of the Léoville Las cars he built an impressive land border between Pauillac and St Julian's, wall. You can tell even from the road, stands the imposing Tower of cream. Down since, the vineyards and the Gironde River, built in the place was a fortress built for the label, this robust towers famous, 17th century, under the British in the 15th century from pirate attacks defends himself. Major Chateaux in Bordeaux, a handful were Chateau has been managed by foreign companies, there is only one. From 1963 until 1994 Latour had owned is British, returned to France who purchased this land in 1994, François Pinot.
 Wine is impeccable, classic stuff, Masaharu new when a mediocre vintage also consistently even when the poor, is an excellent quality. Has a reputation for producing wines of Bordeaux 1 in parallel, or a poor vintage, 1960, 1972, about 1974, proven, recent poor vintage (1977, 1980, 1984) the amazing wine, overshadowed by the Château other than.
 In addition, stubbornly to slow ripening even famous. 20 years-25 years the bottle maturation and shedding considerable tannins, show great strength and depth and richness. "Brave" or "masculine" known as "robust", but in 1983-and to faint during 1989, but know it has toned down. it seems. I felt staff strongly denied it, but in my tasting more calm and approachable style.   Fortunately, such a frivolous trend started and produced wine La Tour once again outstanding from 1990 and has disappeared.
 It is not 10 years cannot be denied that the superior is slightly inferior in 1982 and 1986, but outstanding. It is insufficient to handle the 1983, 1985, 1986 harvest, fermentation (Cuvelier) openly in secret. Was necessary in order to accommodate the grapes, fermentation tank emptying quickly. Underground cellars and Cuvelier and the to Bordeaux's biggest harvest in 1989. There is sense in 1983, 1985, 1988, 1989, tasting, objectively, all ages till this century compared to the lightly and clearly weakens the strength, fell out of the dense wine. In 1990, and in 1994, 1995, Latour in 1996, returned to its original state.

Chateau Latour Chateau Latour

The undisputed premier wine, Bordeaux wine Bordeaux 1 [Latour]!

 Number in the "second wine" of Bordeaux, without a doubt the best of is one of those things. Unlike Latour vineyard differences (blended Latour vineyard even slightly, though), early drinking will staff greets the palate. Kabacam, very concentrated fruit flavors and full-bodied, positively ask Latour bloodlines.

 Tip of the Médoc rated 1st grade, then ordered to shake [Latour]."Always high quality, strong, kabacam, solemn. 」Has a vivid personality know instantly which vintages to drink Chateau Latour. State primer sales in recent years but difficult to obtain, and no one can denyA great wine is the wine world's greatestIt is.
 It is a wine, par grade Chateau around the city as well as to surpass the strength. Also look for quality, price, and market supply was synonymous with the second label this Les fall-de-Latour is alreadySecond label range has been exceeded.

 Château Latour vineyard is divided into three types.
The first one [Grand Enclos (Gran Rambla)] for the "Latour" and a special section called.
The second one spreads around the field, mainly used in the "Les fall de Latour" pane. It is a groves growing excellent grapes here is not up to the Gran Rambla, although more than 40 years old, have been maintained for more than 100 years.
Young trees to grow for future third compartment. This is called "comprantation" and the tree wither every year, a healthy trees, it substitutes it. Is essential to keep the quality of all parcels.
 Grapes are harvested from young trees, Château Latour performs a young tree growth on a large scale, mainly [Pauillac de Latour] [Les fall de Latour] to has been used. Usually consists of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot Les fall de Latour, which is two-thirds we use things from young trees grown from non-Grand-Rambla is two-thirds. These vines are planted in 1964, one.
Over the centuries-old vines out of Rambla, according to Les fall de Latour quality is steadily improving.

Robert Parker Jr. " Bordeaux 4th Edition "more
 Latour was always "second" wines of Latour's so quality in the 1855 classification (d) argued is equivalent in class. In fact, they are in Latour during a blind tasting of Les fall de Latour for comparison 2 Chateau wine has been put out to claim. If the decision whether or not relegate a Pauillac (third wine) Les fall de la Tour is very good not to have been made. In particular vintage I, too, for example in 2000, 1996, 1982, such as want to agree with their assessment, to objectively see the Les fall de Latour is level 4 with quality. However, that is still the best in the Bordeaux second wine is not changed.
 Brewing method is exactly same as Latour, grape Petit Bertie, Comtesse de Lalande, and Les fall de Latour at 3 locations of fields are used. Also, was considered in addition to the above, but a lot of Latour Grand Vin is not very one (of many) would be blended. Les fall de la Tour features a similar stunning Latour itself. Lighter than Latour, early drinking palate just. Mistakes not to be produced in the famous Châteaux of Bordeaux's best second-label (or Marquis).
