Raspberry and floral aromas follow through to a medium-to-full-bodied palate with fine tannins and a chocolate cream and cedar aftertaste. This has mellowed with time. Best after 2012. 2080 cases made. -JS

Ruby red in the glass with a clean brilliant character. The nose shows sweet red fruit caraway seed and notes of cedar. The palate is fresh with lively acidity and a nice balance of fruitiness fine tannin and sweet spice... Ruby red in the glass with a clean brilliant character. The nose shows sweet red fruit caraway seed and notes of cedar. The palate is fresh with lively acidity and a nice balance of fruitiness fine tannin and sweet spice. Medium bodied this wine offers a lingering textural finish. Overall this is a precise and approachable wine one that I'll look forward to tasting again in 5 years.

Winery

Latour a Pomerol

Chateau Latour a Pomerol is one of the leading Bordeaux wine producers from the Pomerol appellation. Since 1962, Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix has farmed the property, bringing their usual care and expertise to both vineyard and cellar.

The vineyard, with an average age of 35 years, is characterized by its soil diversity. There is loamy soil around the chateau itself with more gravel and clay in the best blocks near the church within the village of Pomerol. The estate has 8 hectares planted, predominantly Merlot with a small amount of Cabernet Franc.

Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix, who own many other properties in both Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, including Magdelaine, Belair-Monange, La Fleur-Petrus, Lafleur-Gazin, Lagrange, Trotanoy, and Hosanna.
