Few estates in Pomerol have as strong a pedigree as Latour a Pomerol, a “fabled wine” (Parker) with a legendary history, yet it remains one of the most reasonably priced world-class Bordeaux out there. Today, we have an incredible opportunity to secure a modern vintage of Latour a Pomerol right in the midst of its renaissance, for over 30% off and the best price around!
For Robert Parker, older Latour a Pomerol vintages have “been among the most monumental wines I have tasted” and in recent years the Moueix team (Petrus, Trotanoy, Dominus) has pulled out all of the stops to elevate this chateau back to the level it very much deserves. This is a rarely seen price for newer releases from this Pomerol legend and you'll want to lock in some to enjoy over the next two decades.
Since 2009, Latour a Pomerol has been firing on all cylinders, and according to The Wine Cellar Insider, “if you're not familiar with this wine in its current incarnation, you're missing out.” This 2017 is an understated classic, and a “gorgeous wine” (Vinous) that is sure to appeal to fans of classic Pomerol. Here's the perfect chance to stock up and experience Latour a Pomerol’s return to form!!
94 points, Vinous: "The 2017 Latour à Pomerol is a gorgeous wine that is at once deep and yet also super-expressive in its bouquet. Sweet tobacco, dried herbs, mint, pepper and spice give the 2017 striking aromatic presence to play off a core of ripe red cherry fruit. Medium in body yet wonderfully deep and fleshy, the 2017 has so much to offer. I like it as much from bottle as I did from barrel." - Antonio Galloni
93+ points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color and composed of 100% Merlot, the 2017 Latour à Pomerol leaps from the glass with expressive scents of baked plums, warm black cherries and boysenberries with wafts of fallen leaves, bouquet garni and fertile loam. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating, muscular black fruits with a firm backbone of rounded tannins and a long, minerally finish."
