Château Latour is a French wine estate, rated as a First Growth under the 1855 Bordeaux Classification, owned by Groupe Artemis. Latour lies at the very southeastern tip of the commune of Pauillac in the Médoc region to the north-west of Bordeaux, at its border with Saint-Julien, and only a few hundred metres from the banks of the Gironde estuary.

Whether Napoleon III’s infamous Bordeaux Classification of 1855 initiated the one-upmanship between the chateaux of Médoc or simply poured accelerant on it, is moot. The classification, which supposedly ranked the chateaux First through Fifth Growths according to quality, actually ranked them according to the price they fetched at the time. They’ve been jealously watching each other’s pricing ever since.This is especially true in Pauillac, home to three of the five First Growths: Chateaux Latour, Lafite-Rothschild and Mouton Rothschild. Competition amongst them aside, their Cabernet Sauvignon wines have few rivals when it comes to demand, price or, more importantly, ageability. The fact that these wines can be so long-lived increases their already hefty costs over time. Several other significant classified chateaux produce equally top quality wines, including excellent Sauvignon Blanc. Some of these properties benefit from reflected radiance of First Growth proprietorship, but none command quite the same veneration. (vivino)
