Probably a sleeper of the vintage the medium to full-bodied pure 2008 reveals notes of almond paste intermixed with black currants sweet cherries caramel and mocha as well as an attractive texture and density.

From a 20 acre vineyard planted to 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc on 2/3 gravelly/clay soil and 1/3 clay/silt soil. A very aromatic nose revealing attractive notes of raspberry dark earth smoke and tree bark. With a smooth and sweet entry this has a great presence of fruit on the palate and superb balance. Quite rich with good weight length and complexity there is a bit of chocolate and oak on the finish.

On the nose classic Bordeaux aromas emerge displaying cinnamon cedar strawberry and coffee. Very structured the wine is balanced with bright acidity and chalky tannins while red and black fruit dominate the palate leading to the finish that is long and clean. Decant this lovely wine for several hours if consuming now or wait a few years and enjoy from 2014-2030+.

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.
