The Wine Cellar located at Restaurant Latour features an opulently appointed tasting room with two expansive walls of arched viewing windows -- allowing full appreciation of the extensive wine storage vault. The integrity of the wine is preserved and protected, while its beauty and history become integral parts of the wine-tasting experience.
Restaurant Latour’s immense wine list is presented in two distinctive cork-covered binders: White Wine & Champagne and Red Wine & Port. These draw from the Restaurant’s private cellar, which houses more than 9,100 labels and 135,000+ bottles. This amazing inventory -- 50 years in the making -- includes all the best vintages (1959, 1961, 1982, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2009 and more) of all great chateaux of Bordeaux and Burgundy and many others.
Other notable inclusions are more than 100 vintages of Chateau Latour (1863 to 2009), many in large format, as well as deep, vertical selections of Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Haut Brion, Lafite, Margaux, Mouton, Petrus, and others … nearly all of which extend more than half a century. Many rare bottles such as Le Pin and Lafleur also populate the wine cellar.
Beyond Bordeaux, Rhone, and Burgundy are represented with hundreds of labels -- including verticals of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti; single-vineyards from Guigal’s La Mouline, La Landonne, and La Turque; Chapoutier’s Le Meal, Le Pavillon, and L’Ermite; and Jaboulet’s La Chapelle. California is equally represented with verticals of Beaulieu, Georges de Latour, Private Reserve from 1960 to 2002; Opus One for more than two decades; Heitz Martha’s Vineyard and Chateau Montelena for nearly three decades; and multiple vintages of Harlan, Screaming Eagle, Araujo, Bryant, Dalla Valle, and other sought-after California wines.
Italy is respected and represented with multiple vintages of Bruno Giacosa, Roberto Voerzio, Paolo Scavino, and other Barolo producers; an extensive selection of Super-Tuscans; and Gaja’s outstanding wines from his Piedmont and Tuscan vineyards.
