Reviews for 1998 Latour a Pomerol Bordeaux Blend

WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2001
Tar berry and dry stone aromas with wet earth. Full-bodied thick and chewy with velvety tannins. Big and rustic but I like this textbook Latour à Pomerol. Best in decades. Best after 2008. 3000 cases made.

Medium red-ruby. Superripe almost surmuri aromas of cherry raspberry minerals and meat. Big very rich and expansive; lovely firm-edged acids give the wine surprising vinosity and insinuating flavor. Impeccably balanced... Medium red-ruby. Superripe almost surmuri aromas of cherry raspberry minerals and meat. Big very rich and expansive; lovely firm-edged acids give the wine surprising vinosity and insinuating flavor. Impeccably balanced. The tannins are thoroughly buffered on the long finish. As superripe as this is it still finishes with verve and grip.

A beautiful effort the 1998 is one of the finest wines produced at this estate in the last thirty years. Revealing characteristics of vanillin leather highly-extracted black cherry fruit and caramel this deep rich full-bodied powerful layered sweetly tannic 1998 is not as profound as I originally thought but it is still an outstanding wine. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020.
