Discover wines from Château Latour in our current auction.
Buying wines from auction presents the opportunity to attain wines well on their way to maturity and those rarely, if ever, found in retail.
However it is worth remembering that wine continues to age in the bottle and will eventually fade - for some wines this could be 5 years, for others over 100 years.
While naturally present, this risk can be mitigated through reviewing widely available vintage reports and critic reviews, and imposing realistic expectations. The reward however, of a fine wine at its absolute peak of maturity, offering its full range of primary, secondary and tertiary flavours should be significant enough for most to negate the occasional disappointment.
So, if the risk-reward scales are deemed favourable, we have a lovely selection of wines at various stages of maturity available in our current auction. Happy browsing and please bid responsibly.
