於十八世紀初期,Château Latour 便開始獲世人推崇,多得英國市場,也因為北歐的酒業發展了起來。貴族和其他不少富有顧客,對幾個酒莊特別有興趣,而Château Latour 就是其中之一,也是當時美國駐法國領使到之後的美國總統 Thomas Jefferson 於1787年發現此酒。那時一桶的 Château Latour  已經是普通波爾多酒的二十倍價錢。
Château Latour 的名聲於 19 世紀獲進一步鞏固,因為在 1855 年的當時拿破崙三世政府,為了巴黎國際展覽會而把 Medoc 和 Graves 區的葡萄種植分級,而 Château Latour 就獲選為第一級,而現時的城堡就是在 1862 至 1864 年那個黃金年代興建。

Les Forts de Latour是酒莊的副牌,於1966年首次以這名稱面世,與正牌Grand Vin同樣用心釀造。除了葡萄的產地外,顯著的區別只在於陳年時用新桶的比例 (50% - 60%),以及用較多的Merlot (25% - 30%)。其優秀的品質已達到Médoc Grand Cru Classé的水平。

2008年的Les Forts de Latour,酒莊釀造好之後,不馬上推出,而是存放在酒窖陳年。它在杯中輕輕展現出清晰的黑莓、黑松露和雪松木的香氣。酒體中等,入口強勁。初時有白胡椒、甜椒和石墨的味道,繼而是黑果和酒韻的薄荷味,感覺平衡。(適飲期:2015-2030)


At the beginning of the eighteenth century, Château Latour started to be highly recognized around the world, thanks to the reconquest of the British market and the development of the wine business in Northern Europe. The aristocracy and other wealthy groups of consumers became very enthusiastic about a few great estates, of which Latour was one. And that was how Thomas Jefferson, ambassador of the United States in France, and future President, discovered this wine in 1787. At that time, a cask of Château Latour was already worth twenty times as much as one of ordinary Bordeaux wine.
The reputation of Château Latour was consolidated during the 19th century. It was confirmed in 1855, when the government of Napoléon III decided to classify the growths of the Médoc and the Graves for the International Exhibition in Paris: Château Latour was classified as a First Growth. The existing château was built during this "Golden Age", between 1862 and 1864.

Les Forts de Latour is the second label, was first labelled with this name in 1966.  It is produced with the same meticulous care as the Grand Vin. The notable differences, apart from the origin of the grapes, is the proportion of new barrels (50% - 60%) used in the maturing stage and higher proportion of Merlot (25% - 30%). Its quality has resulted in its achieving the level of a Médoc Grand Cru Classé.

Tasting Notes:
(Robert Parker's rating: 91 points)
The Les Forts de Latour 2008, a late cellar release from the estate, has a very delineated bouquet with blackberry, black truffle and cedar aromas the gently unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a feisty entry, touches of white pepper, graphite and bell pepper on the entry that neatly complement the black fruit, which dovetails into a poised, minty finish.
