The concentrated plum and black cherry fruits are refined, fresh and velvety with the right amount of chocolate, espresso and truffle to boot. This is the best Latour Pomerol since the sublime 1970. Which is still showing great today! Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2018&wine=Chateau%20Latour%20a%20Pomerol

(93-96 points) The mulled plum and blackberry fruit has a fleshy texture, picking up tobacco, savory and cedar notes along the way. A warm earth accent fills in on the finish, with the fruit keeping pace.

A warm earth accent fills in on the finish, with the fruit keeping pace. A broad-shouldered wine. Drink now.- JM

Solid, traditional young Pomerol.

The palate is medium to full-bodied with a muscular core of densely packed black fruits with bright, herbal sparks and framed by firm, grainy tannins, finishing earthy.

Rich, dense and explosive, the 2018 possesses off the charts richness to match its decidedly exotic, opulent personality. Ripeness is pushed to the edge, and yet the 2018 retains striking balance. Inky red fruit, cherry jam and sweet spice notes add to the wine's decidedly flamboyant personality. In a word: Superb.- AG

(92–94) Barrel Sample. A powerful and dense wine, this is rich in concentrated tannins that show strongly against the backdrop of blackberry fruit and bright acidity. A juicy aftertaste gives it fine aging potential.

This wine is full of self-confidence with tannins that are serious, well worked and carefully extracted but they don't shy away from the task in hand, which is protecting the young fruit as it ages. It has a big structure but should lose a little of its austerity while ageing.

This rich, nicely structured Pomerol has loads of cassis and black cherry fruits, subtle spice box and graphite, medium to full body, and building tannins that kick in on the finish. It has the vintage’s upfront sex appeal, some background oak, and loads to love.
