The Grand Vin de Château Latour 1er Cru Classé Pauillac AOC is a prestigious wine from the Bordeaux winery Château Latour. The growing area of Grand Vin de Château Latour 1er Cru Classé Pauillac AOC is located in the Pauillac appellation in the northern part of the Bordeaux region in France. Pauillac is known for its premium red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot grape varieties. The region is characterized by a maritime climate influenced by its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. This provides moderate temperatures and sufficient rainfall to allow the grapes to ripen ideally.

The Grand Vin de Château Latour 1er Cru Classé Pauillac AOC is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant grape variety and makes up about 80% of the blend. This variety is known for its intense color, high acidity and tannic structure. Merlot brings a softer texture and some fruitiness to the blend. Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are added in smaller amounts to add complexity and depth.

Château Latour's vineyards are located on a limestone plateau consisting of a mixture of gravel, sand and clay. The gravelly soil provides good drainage, allowing the vines to root deep into the soil and absorb nutrients. The sandy clay soil retains water and provides adequate moisture. This soil condition combined with the maritime climate creates ideal conditions for growing quality wines.
