"The 2015 Latour à Pomerol is fabulous...The fusion of power and sensuality makes for a compelling Pomerol that is going to drink well for several decades." - Antonio Galloni
Few figures on the Right Bank are as consistently and indisputably world-class as Christian Moueix. With names like Petrus and Trotanoy to his name, Moueix has earned his reputation for crafting masterpieces from top sites as well as giving estates with extraordinary potential the shot in the arm they need. Latour a Pomerol is one such estate, and today is part of an “elite league of Pomerol.” Declared by Suckling to be their best wine in over 30 years, the 2015 Latour a Pomerol is a “classic Pomerol in the making" (JD95). With multiple 95+ point scores from the critics, this is the apex of Right Bank Merlot: structured, regal, and decadent, but able to age for decades, too. Today’s offer is a rare opportunity to secure magnums of this once and future icon of Pomerol at a great sale price. This is a real showstopper for a special occasion or anniversary, and as magnums tend to develop more slowly it will have a minimum of 20 years of superb drinking.
Having been described as nothing short of a “fabled wine” by Robert Parker, he is confident that Latour a Pomerol is on its way “back to the legendary quality” of the post-war vintages. 2015 is certainly a legendary vintage for Bordeaux, and especially for Pomerol, which is “fueling positive sentiment towards this vintage” per the Wine Advocate.
Latour a Pomerol has truly earned its place in the Moueix portfolio alongside Trotanoy, Hosanna, La Fleur Pétrus, and, of course, Petrus. Despite its top pedigree and capacity to make 100-point wines, the estate’s prices tend to be more affordable than those of its stablemates and neighbors. We have a very limited quantity coming to us direct from Bordeaux, so you'll want to act quick to add this serious Right Bank stunner that will astonish for decades to your collection. Cheers!
