Except, Latour, like many of the big Medoc properties, does not have a shop and do not sell any wine to visitors.

Chateau Latour is one of the four wine chateaux categorised in 1855 as a First Growth (Premier Grand Cru – a fifth was added later). This “1855 classification” is curiously still considered important among wine drinkers and wine merchants. The Chateau Latour is located in the commune of Pauillac in the Medoc in the Bordeaux wine region.
It gets its name from the tower next to the chateau building itself. The main building is a rather humble affair compared to many other exclusive and exuberant chateaux in the region. The tower lies on a small hilltop in the middle of the vineyards. From there you have a view over the river Garonne. The vineyards extend over some 78 hectares, not all in one plot. They make a “grand vin”, the Chateau Latour, and a second wine called Les Forts de Latour. The grape varieties grown are cabernet sauvignon (some 80%) and merlot, with a few vines of cabernet franc and petit verdot.
