Of all the first growths, Latour has maintained a consistent level of excellence for over 100 years—and in the last two decades, they have been producing some of the greatest wines in the history of the estate. Much of this has to do with a change of ownership in the mid-nineties, along with the constant quest to improve upon perfection. Today, the vineyards are farmed organically, and as quality continues to increase, production goes down. This is great news for those of us who can find these cherished bottles. ✦ latour pauillac press bottle 1996 (1005191) wA 100 $999 1998 (111930) RP 90 $695 1999 (168010) wS 93 $695 2003 (123992) RP 100 $1050 2005 (1006031) wS 99 $1250 2006 (16098) RP 95 $699 2009 (1006004) JS 100 $1800 2010 (1006009) JS 100 $1600 latour les forts de latour Pauillac 2008 (1005174) wA 90+ $189 o f all the First Growths, Chateau Lafite Rothschild stands as the region's icon.
