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 collapse

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. collapse

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 collapse

Wine Enthusiast, April 2019
(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. 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.
