Chateau Latour produces two additional wines including a second wine known as Les Fort de Latour and a third called Le Pauillac de Chateau Latour. Les Fort de Latour originates from younger Enclos vines and its surrounding vineyards, while Le Pauillac de Chateau Latour utilizes fruit omitted from Les Fort de Latour. Fruit from the prestigious Enclos parcel contributes exclusively to the grand vin.

The meticulous winemaking process at Chateau Latour underpins its consistent quality improvement. Technical Director Frederic Engerer, in charge since 1995, has instituted a rigorous selection process, ensuring only the finest fruit from the best site is used. Grapes are vinified with precision, accounting for variety, parcel, and vine age. The grand vin matures in 100% new oak, while Les Fort de Latour ages in 50% new oak.

"So minty, with loads of subtle ripe fruit and eucalyptus undertones. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a long, long finish. Caresses every inch of the palate. It's the quality of the tannins that's impressive here. What a great and beautiful wine. Should improve for many years to come, (WS, 96 points)".
