2015 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac

SKU #1497557 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A firm and linear red with currant, blackberry and stone aromas and flavors. Full yet closed and tight. Acidity drives this one. Third wine of Paulliac. Serious. Needs two or three years to come together. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Latour's 2015 Pauillac is gorgeous. Deep, pliant and super-expressive, the 2015 is utterly captivating. Silky tannins wrap around a core of fruit as this radiant, inviting wine shows off its charms. There is a level of purity to the 2015 that is remarkable. In the past, the Pauillac has at times been a bit wild. In 2015, it is the brightness of the fruit that makes the deepest impression. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Pretty closed up, as many of the 2015s are. Extremely concentrated, touches of black pepper and chocolate, but the tannins remain fairly bulky for the moment, and I would suggest giving it another few years in bottle. A vintage that saw the estate working fully organically across all the vineyard for the first time (although not certified until 2018 vintage). This does not go through the Place de Bordeaux, and is sold directly by Latour. (JA) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Le Pauillac de Chateau Latour is a blend of 54.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41.7% Merlot and 4.1% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it sails out of the glass at a fantastic clip, delivering wonderfully fragrant notes of baked blackberries, blueberry compote and redcurrant jelly with hints of licorice, red roses and cigar box. Medium-bodied, generously fruited, open-knit and tantalizingly drinkable right now, the palate is chock-full of expressive red and black fruits, featuring approachable, ripe, soft tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with compelling purity. Very impressive showing! (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Silky and very fresh in feel, with delightful black cherry and plum compote notes lined with subtle black tea and graphite hints. Shows some sneaky density on the back end. (JL, Web-2018) Inner quote mark

If you want to taste the refinement, richness and elegance that has made Chateau Latour famous for centuries, this is a great opportunity to do it without breaking the bank. Pauillac de Latour is their third label, made from the property's younger vines, and in a generous vintage like 2015, the first-growth quality is evident. Rich red fruits, currants and cherries, undertones of smokey minerals and cedar, with ripe elegant, fully integrated tannins. This is a LOT of Bordeaux for under $100.

We just received the 2015 Pauillac in stock and it shows surprisingly well for a wine that generally that needs some age to come around. Made primarily from young vines, this wine shows tons of red fruits in its core, hints of menthol, spice and cedar. The wine shows terrific focus and purity. The finish is long and the tannins are evident but ripe and integrated. A great wine to buy and enjoy over the next 5-10 years.

This is the 2020 release from the cellars of Chateau Latour. A baby Latour for sure on the nose of some toasty oak and cassis. Lots of upfront fruit covered by some tannins. Needs decanting now and will cellar well for 15 years easily. Red roses on the palate. Long, lingering finish. Quite a big wine for 2015. Value!
Drink from 2022 to 2035
