Château Latour Autumn 2014 Release

by Charles Lea

The following wines have been released by Château Latour in small volumes. These wines represent the last releases from the property for these wines, and the last chance to buy ex-chateau stock. They come with proof-tags and back labels saying they are the 2014 release. All are available in very limited quantities so orders will have to be confirmed individually – speak now. Offered subject to stock remaining.

Prices are per case in bond:-

The prices of these wines show a very small premium over stock in the marketplace from earlier releases, but it is a very small premium, and is coherent for the perfect provenance. Prices, it has to be said, have been pretty soft over the last couple of years, but the release prices have followed the market down, and so these prices are now lower than you would have had to pay a couple of years ago. While is is a brave man who calls the bottom of a market, there is a point at which it starts to look at least imaginable to buy these wines to drink.
