The name of Chateau Latour can be traced back to the 14th century and in the 1960’s, a British company had a controlling interest in Latour with the final buyer being the industrialist Francois Pinault. The vineyards total around 18,000 cases with plantings of 75% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet-Franc.
