Description of Château Latour Magnum 1995
Château Latour Magnum 1995 (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot)
Vintage quality and tasting comments
From their early stage the Grand Vin and Les Forts de Latour were full of ripe fruit, smooth, opulent and very rich. Both wines have developed a more classic and firm structure since 1999.
The Grand Vin displays aromas of chocolate, red berries and hints of fresh mint. The mouth is full-bodied, dense with a rich structure but also a long and firm finish.
Les Forts de Latour is more expressive at this stage, displaying caramel, red berries, roasted nuts, dry fruits and light spices aromas. The mouth is well-balanced, elegant, very expressive and savoury with a very good length and a sweet finish.(tasting : May 2001)
Quality: Great year
How to serve
Chateau Latour wrote history, The building states its first mentioning in a document dating back to 1331, in which the lord, Gaucelme de Castillon, gives permission to build a fortress tower to defend the region during the Hundred Years War. Three hundred years later, the estate fell into the hands of Alexandre de Segur, which was awarded by King Louis XV with the title "Prince of wine". The Chateau Latour went through many hands and families, in the 20th century the estate belonged to the British until it finally returned to French ownership. The Segur family finally received shares of 7%.More about the Winery
Reviews of Château Latour Magnum 1995
Deep colour at first sight. Great smell of chocolate coulant. The flavour remained for a long time.
We started with tapas and went through meal with it.
A Armagnac with brown edges. Smell of coffee or wood. A taste of nothing in particular, just wine.
It has a very nice colour. In my opinion, the most noticeable smell is raspberry. Not a singularity to highlight, the wine was fine.
This rather mild wine pairs perfectly with roast lamb I've already tried it.
