The Latour-a-Pomerol has a more backward nose compared to its peers. Natural blackberry and raspberry fruit, wild hedgerow with subtle dried herb notes emerging with time in the glass. There is a gravel-like note one normally associated with La Grave-a-Pomerol. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins on the entry. It is very well balanced, very refined, but constitutes a more introspective Latour-a-Pomerol compared to recent vintages. I just need a little more depth and structure on the finish to merit a higher score, although it usually fills out nicely during maturation. collapse

(WE90-92 points) This wine is laden with tannins yet shows juicy, crisp red-berry flavors. It finishes with great structure.

Deep aromas of blackcurrant, mocha and molasses, with hints of sweet spices and loam. At once sweet and firm, with sound acidity lifting the wine's rich flavors of black cherry, leather and truffle. Thick but not fat, finishing with a firm tannic spine and excellent persistence. - Ian D'Agata collapse

The 2011 possesses a healthy dark ruby/plum color, a broad, expansive mouthfeel, and plenty of jammy cherry, spice, earth and truffle notes. Rich, medium-bodied, pure and front end-loaded, this seductive effort can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr. collapse

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.
