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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
