Chateau Latour Releases 2007 Vintage

 

No longer releasing its wine as a future, this morning Latour have announced the ex-Chateaux release of the ‘underrated’ 2007 vintage. It is being offered by UK merchants @ £4,100.00 per 12 bottles & last month Neal Martin awarded the vintage 92 pts, indicating that it is ‘finally entering its drinking plateau’.

 

For Parker’s most recent critique we must to refer to his score of 92+pts in April 2010, declaring Latour as one of the ‘longest lived wines of the vintage’. As far as pricing goes, the ex-Chateaux release for the 2007 has broken the mould of 10-15% above the going market rate. This is encouraging!

 

Focusing on the ‘off-prime’ vintages we believe it would be more prudent to consider the 2008 vintage, which is also available at £4,100.00 per 12 (IB), rated at 96pts (LPB), 95+pts (RP and NM). 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2006 are at a similar price point and all carry a higher Wine Advocate score.

 

For clients on the hunt for value, 2008 holds the lowest POP value with 2001 and 2004, a close second and third.
