World Gourmet Summit is honoured to feature for the first time in 2012 this very exclusive master class tasting hosted by the chairman and chief executive officer of Château Latour, Frédéric Engerer.
Classified in 1855 as a 1er Grand Cru Classé (First Growth Bordeaux), Château Latour is positioned at the utmost pinnacle of wine excellence. Production of the Grand Vin is amongst the smallest of the First Growths with much of what is made declassified into the also highly regarded second wine, Les Forts de Latour. Robert M. Parker Jr. noted in his book ‘Bordeaux’, “Latour is unquestionably the most consistent of Bordeaux’s first growths...” - maintaining its high quality even in difficult vintages. Often described as powerful, rich, concentrated, slow-maturing and infinitely complex, this is truly the king of wines.
Frédéric Engerer joined Château Latour in 1995 and was appointed President in 1998. He has been instrumental in ensuring the highest quality and consistency at Château Latour, overseeing a total renovation of the winery, vat room, wine making facilities and storage areas to ensure even greater precision in the production of the wines. A man of no compromises, Engerer’s invaluable level of experience and knowledge will make this rare occasion an opportunity for the most discerning of wine lovers not to miss!
