The 2013 Les Forts de Latour is the second wine of Chateau Latour. Dark red cherries, plums, smoke and tobacco meld together gracefully in the 2013 Les Forts de Latour wine. Layered, supple and caressing on the palate, this is one of the juicier 2013s readers will come across. This Pauillac wine is expressive floral and spiced notes, the soft, resonant finish is especially appealing.
Les Forts de Latour is produced with the same meticulous care as the Grand Vin, both in the vineyard and in the winery. The only notable difference, apart from the origin of the grapes, is the proportion of new barrels (50 to 60%) used in the maturing stage.
This second wine, the 2013 Les Forts de Latour has a blend of 62.7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35.1% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc.
