Wine Spectator, April 2017
(WS93-96 points) Rich, polished and suave, this lets its plum and cassis fruit flow liberally, while keeping a graphite edge in reserve on the finish. Gorgeous feel, with fruit to burn. And it will burn for a while... (WS93-96 points) Rich, polished and suave, this lets its plum and cassis fruit flow liberally, while keeping a graphite edge in reserve on the finish. Gorgeous feel, with fruit to burn. And it will burn for a while, because the acidity is well-embedded and the ample tannins are supple and long. – JM

Broad, ample and creamy on the palate, it offers striking textural nuance and overall finesse. All the elements fall into place effortlessly. Rose petal, sweet red berry and minty notes add to the wine's brightness and total sensuality.
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast, April 2017
(WE93-95 points) This wine is austere, unusual for the vintage. It has a serious layer of tannins as well as acidity. The hints of fruit are under all this firmness, suggesting an impressive wine for long-term aging.

jamessuckling.com, April 2017
(JS93-94 points) A juicy and refined wine with deep fruit, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Medium-bodied and edgy and bright. Doesn’t possess the power of the 2015 but outstanding.

(WA90-92 points) The 2016 Latour a Pomerol is a blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc this year. I found the nose a little disjointed compared to others, maybe just a touch of leanness here, although it does meld together with aeration and develops attractive mineral/limestone scents that complement the bright red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with gritty tannin on the entry, plenty of tobacco and cedar notes lending it a Left Bank-like personality, a touch rigid towards the finish. Not a bad Latour-à-Pomerol, but to be honest I have tasted better in recent vintages, including the 2014 and 2015. - Neal Martin

Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, April 2017
17/20 Dark crimson. Relatively light nose with some floral hints. Sprightly with notable acidity. Polished and racy with very marked tannins. For the moment it's all potential rather than reality.

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.
