Reviews for 2011 Latour a Pomerol Bordeaux Blend

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Offers both guts and charm with a very solid core of plum cake fig and cassis laced with hints of ganache and roasted spice notes. There's a nice mouthfilling feel through the finish with more oomph and drive than most...

Aromas of blueberries chocolate and blackberries follow through to a full to medium body with firm tannins and a pleasing finish. Juicy.

Planted to 90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc in sandy clay gravel and sand across 8 hectares of non-contiguous plots. The best of these is the 5-hectare plot which surrounds the church in Pomerol. Average vine age is 35... Planted to 90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc in sandy clay gravel and sand across 8 hectares of non-contiguous plots. The best of these is the 5-hectare plot which surrounds the church in Pomerol. Average vine age is 35 years. Medium purple-garnet hue. The muted nose reveals some clay and red fruit aromas. The entry and midpalate are juicy with a harmonious blend of red fruit tapenade and black licorice flavors. Good structure. The succulent core is energized by wonderful minerality and acidity making for a balanced finish. This is tempting to enjoy on release but will fare well after 10-15 years in bottle. Serious effort. Part of the Moueix stable of wines.
