The 2004 vintage saw the return of a very classic wine with a powerful, fresh, lively style, and a solid, precise structure. Very concentrated fruit is supported by an imposing structure, and already showing great purity and a rare level of energy. The finish is long and very silky, supported by very well-integrated tannins.97 Points - Wine Enthusiast - "There are tannins, structure and power, but also supreme elegance. The 2004 acidity comes through in the sweet cassis flavors, supported at the back by dry tannins. Currently, the wine is closed up, losing some of its fresh fruit, but this is a moment in its slow evolution towards a classic Latour." 95 Points - Wine Spectator - "Captivating aromas of currant, black licorice and spices, with just a hint of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Structured and racy." 95 Points - The Wine Advocate - "A terrific effort from Administrator Frederic Engerer and owner Francois Pinault, the dark ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Latour exhibits a strong cassis character intermixed with notes of crushed rocks, earth, cedar, and forest floor. Racy, elegant, but powerful with medium to full body, and sweet tannin, it will benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring, and should keep for three decades. It is a very impressive offering. " 95 Points - International Wine Cellar - "Full ruby-red. Expressive aromas of redcurrant, minerals and spicy oak. Wonderfully sweet and smooth in the middle palate, with superb purity of redcurrant and mineral flavors. Offers lovely flesh and length, but this is in an oaky phase at the moment. Engerer notes that the 2004 is "more predictable and easier to read" than the 2005 and agreed with my observation that most 2004s are surprisingly expressive today-even the wines that were being prepared for the bottling. 92-95 points." 94 Points - Wine & Spirits - "The modern Latour has a vast architectural presence. The edges of ferrous power here are tamed on a supple texture, though the choice seems to have been to trade some freshness for that textural grace. The tannins have the potent austerity that grows out of Latour's deep hill of stones. Closed off for now, the fruit aspect of the wine will not likely show for more than a decade, and the wine will likely need 20 years to reach maturity."80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot

Average vine age is 37 years. In order to retain the advantage of older vines, the renewal of the vines is not done in lots, but periodically throughout the vineyard. Each vine that is replaced is identified by a yellow plastic ring, making them easily identifiable so they can be harvested before the main harvest in order to avoid any confusion. This isolation of the young vines continues for 8 years. The 124 acres produce around 20,000 cases.
