Château Latour Announces Next Releases

Château Latour Announces Next Releases

by Westgarth Wines March 10, 2015

2012 was the last time Château Latour participated in the en primeur system and has since moved to an annual re-release of recent vintages ahead of the en primeur campaigns, as well as a small release of older vintages in September. Latour's pullout of the en primeur system was to allow them to release wines when it considered them “ready”.

In keeping with their new schedule, Château Latour plans to release its 2003 grand vin and the 2008 vintage of Les Forts de Latour later this month, both carrying a premium price. The first set of releases were in 2013 with the 1995 grand vin and 2005 Forts, both met with criticism that the price was too high. Again in 2014 when Latour released the 2004 grand vin and 2006 Forts, the market barely took notice.

The annual re-release will takes place around March 20th.
