Château Latour news

Chateau Latour from Lay & WheelerIt has been announced today by Château Latour that the 2011 vintage will be the last that they will be offering en primeur.

This was reported on wine critic James Suckling’s blog this afternoon and has apparently since been confirmed by negociants in the region, who received a letter from the Château today.

While not entirely unexpected, this certainly raises questions about the future of the en primeur system. Will the other first growths follow suit and how will smaller châteaux respond?
