JS95
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2011
This is the best LP I have had a long time, with black currant and flowers. Full body. It builds on the palate, with incredibly polished tannins and a long, intense finish.

This marries power and finesse, with a large core of smoldering fig and blackberry fruit, offset by black tea and aromatic spice notes. Fleshy but still stylish. A gorgeous wine. Tasted non-blind. -J.M.

Tiny yields (due to the spotty flowering of the Merlot) and small berries (a result of the drought) have produced a dense purple-colored wine with lots of licorice, camphor, black currant, earth and spice notes. The sweetness of the tannins along with the wine's density, opulence and richness make it one of the finest recent examples from this estate (which is attempting to reclaim the legendary status it enjoyed in such ancient vintages as 1947, 1950, 1959 and 1961). The 2010 should drink well for 20 or more years.

Perfumed nose of blackcurrant, violet and sweet spices. Large-scaled, rich and sweet, with terrific creamy depth even if it's not yet fully expressing its ripe, seamless blackberry, coffee and truffle flavors. The very smooth tannins are smothered in fruit on the clean, long finish. This strikes me as one of the best La Tour a Pomerols in years.

Tasted at JP Moueix, the Latour-à-Pomerol is a little taciturn at first but rewards those with time to let the sample breath. Blackberry leaf, wild strawberry, black truffle and a touch of cedar emerge all with superb delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, tensile tannins, very compact at the moment but fanning out beautifully on the spicy, energetic finish that is cloaked in puppy fat. Long in the mouth, a little disjointed at the moment but it will coalesce during its elevage. This is a cerebral Latour-a-Pomerol that may warrant a higher mark after bottling.

Good tannins here, very structured. You can feel the power through the dusty tannins. The final feel is very concentrated.

Truffle, forest floor, chocolate and cherry aromas open to a supple, medium/full bodied, soft textured wine that ends with a black cherry, licorice finish

The bouquet of this wine is extremely enticing with plush and pure fruit aromas along with underlying minerals that weave in and out. These same components repeat on the palate with a sense of purity and length that is quite compelling, and the focused flavors are elegant with just the barest sense of breadth across the palate. Meanwhile, the long finish tapers gently, propelled by the finest of tannins and just the right amount of acid. Beautifully poised and looking incredible at this point. Will provide excitement over the next twenty years.

Tannins quite hard to discern until the very end of this super-fruity number. Easy to love, even if without massive intensity. Slightly angular on the end. Lighter than some but with great appeal. 17 out of 20
