Tax status: Duty PaidQuestion Mark Origin: Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
Fill level: Very Top Shoulder (VTS)Question Mark Grape variety:

Chateau Latour produces 3 wines: the Grand Vin, which always comes from the vines immediately surrounding the château, known as L’Enclos; Les Forts de Latour, the second wine, created in 1966, and now regarded as a great wine in its own right, certainly worthy of Classified Growth status; and finally a third wine, simply called Pauillac de Latour, usually the product of young vines. The second wine, Les Forts de Latour, always comes from a distinct location, rather than simply being the vats rejected as not quite worthy of inclusion in Latour itself, so it has its own distinct identity.

There are definitely less offerings of the older vintages of this stand alone wine these days and prices of this vintage have climbed 35% over the last year.
