This is already very complex with tobacco, blackberries and hints of cedar. It’s medium-bodied with firm and layered tannins. Juicy and so delicious. It can age, too. Delightful now, but better after 2025.—James Suckling

I'm always shocked at the quality of the base Pauillac from this château, but I guess at this point I shouldn't be, given that it's outstanding in just about every vintage. The 2018 Le Pauillac De Château Latour has a medium to full-bodied, ripe, rounded, even sexy style as well as sunny aromatics of red and black fruits, smoked tobacco, and lead pencil shavings. It's balanced, concentrated, and incredibly satisfying.—Jeb Dunnuck

Still knitted down but this has flexible tannins with a real whoosh of freshness underneath. There is a feeling of sinew through the wine, and it shows both character and finesse. There is balance and depth to the brambly fruits, and altogether showing better than it did en primeur, likely to be released in 2023. A yield of 24hl/ha with 21% of production going into this wine.—Jane Anson, Decanter

The 2018 Pauillac de Chateau Latour is composed of 56.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30.8% Merlot, and 12.3% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it needs a little coaxing to bring out notes of plum preserves, juicy blueberries, and chocolate-covered cherries, followed by hints of licorice, Indian spices, garrigue, and clove oil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with seductive black and blue fruits, framed by plush tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long with a compelling lift of freshness. This “third” wine of Château Latour accounted for 21% of the production in 2018.—Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

56.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30.8% Merlot, 12.3% Petit Verdot. 21% of production. Barrel sample.
Black core and purple rim. Lightly stony cassis, scented and pure. Dry, dense and chocolate-textured tannins. A bit of a curtain of tannin but the fruit seeps round the edges. Generous fruit and open apart from the tannin framework. Sweet fruited on the finish. –Julia Harding MW, Jancis Robinson
