Spoiler Alert: HBO’s Ballers Unveils Château Latour

Updated: Dec 31, 2018

Last night’s season 4 premiere of HBO’s Ballers had me hitting freeze frame.  The Rock makes his way through a posh restaurant,  with a rolling, stainless steel case. The reveal: Two coveted bottles of CHÂTEAU LATOUR.

75% Cabernet Sauvignon

20% Merlot

4% Cabernet Franc

1% Petit Verdot

This is a wine report, rather than a review as I have not had the pleasure to taste this one – yet. The CHÂTEAU  LATOUR is known to have aromas of black-currant, cherry and prune, with hints of mint, leather, cedar, and tobacco. This is a wine they say can age for a lifetime and “should not be approached for 10-20 years” for the best tasting experience. If you find a 1949, 1959, 1961, 1982, 1990, or 2000 vintage, grab it!

Price range from $1,300-$1,800+
