This has a very plush, fluid feel with ample tannins, delivered in a smooth, silky and fleshy mode. Bright, red-plum flavors carry long and even. So balanced. Drink or hold.

Starting with 2009, this wine has been on a tear, progressing and improving with every vintage. Even in a difficult year of devastating frost, this is a beauty. There is a silky, plush, velvety quality to the fruit, paired with purity and sweetness that stands out. You should give this 3-5 years or more in the cellar and the wine should hit the top of my range.

Ganache, tobacco and warm earth notes fill in through the finish, melding nicely with the fruit. Best from 2022 through 2038. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. — JM

Medium-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating, muscular black fruits with a firm backbone of rounded tannins and a long, minerally finish.- LPB

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.
