The Latour-a-Pomerol 2009 has a very intense bouquet, real “thrust” from the glass with dark cherries, graphite, dried rose petals and a touch of cassis. Very fine definition and sense of mineralite. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, very fine symmetry, dark berries, summer fruit, crushed stone with a touch of citrus peel towards the finish. Masculine, almost austere finish suggesting that this is a Pomerol to put away.

A wine that is smoky and meaty with hints of dried dark fruits. Full and juicy with velvety tannins and a long long finish. Loads of cocoa character. Balanced and pretty. Try it after 2018.

A nice old-school style with roasted mesquite tobacco leaf and espresso flavors up front following through to bittersweet ganache and mulled dark currant notes on the still-slightly taut but well-framed finish. Should flesh out a bit more with cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2030. -JM

Opulent and ripe fruit that shows all the richness of the vintage. It has weight spice and delicious red berry fruits. The tannins are certainly dense but oh so sweet.

A beautiful wine from the Moueix stable of right bank offerings the 2009 Latour a Pomerol displays a dense plum/ruby/purple color along with a bouquet of mocha roasted nuts wood smoke truffles and sweet cherries... A beautiful wine from the Moueix stable of right bank offerings the 2009 Latour a Pomerol displays a dense plum/ruby/purple color along with a bouquet of mocha roasted nuts wood smoke truffles and sweet cherries. Full-bodied round and generous with sweet tannin considerable power and no hard edges this is a surprisingly up-front precocious effort that can be drunk now or cellared for two decades.

Dark red. Superripe aromas of plum black raspberry mocha herbs and spices. Then dense and backward on the palate with a restrained sweetness to the rich flavors of bitter cherry and menthol. Some herbal nuances... Dark red. Superripe aromas of plum black raspberry mocha herbs and spices. Then dense and backward on the palate with a restrained sweetness to the rich flavors of bitter cherry and menthol. Some herbal nuances contribute to the wine's serious mien. Finishes with firm tannic spine and late notes of woodsmoke and tobacco. Very young and a tough read today.

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.
