Since taking ownership in 1993, billionaire Francois Pinault appointed the perfectionist Frédéric Engerer as manager of Château Latour, giving him carte blanche. The result was a total renovation of the winery and all facilities, enabling a greater precision in production.

“The brilliant second wine, the 2006 Les Forts de Latour, possesses a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful bouquet of asphalt, cassis, cedar, truffles, and earth, and a full-bodied, dense, beautiful style that is similar to a 1996 Pauillac.” Wine Advocate #181

Pair with roast venison, slow cooked lamb dishes or mature cheese.

Reviews

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
