Château Latour itself dates back to the 14th century but the start of its history producing wine really began with the arrival of the Ségur family who, for a time, were also owners of Lafite. Latour's vineyards are situated in the south of the Pauillac appellation, bordering St Julien and are nearer to the Gironde estuary than any other 1st Growth. The micro-climate afforded by its close proximity to the Gironde and the excellent drainage of the gravel soils, which are particularly deep here, contribute to the incredible elegance of the wines.
