Chateau Latour a Pomerol Pomerol 2010
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pomerol|
|Brand||Chateau Latour a Pomerol|
Wine SpectatorDark and loamy, with fig bread and ganache out front, followed by steeped fig, pastis-soaked plum and Black Forest cake notes, all layered and backed by a long, licorice and graphite-filled finish. Offers more than enough fruit and acidity to soak up the abundant toast. For fans of the big style. Best from 2015 through 2030. 1,800 cases made.
Wine AdvocateElegant loamy soil notes intermixed with sweet cherries as well as hints of underbrush, mocha and mulberry jump from the glass of this pure, medium to full-bodied, dense wine, which possesses good glycerin, flesh and richness. It should drink nicely for up to 15 years.
Wine EnthusiastSolidly based on its firm tannins, this is an impressive wine. Acidity and blackberry fruits are sewn together by the tannic structure. There is a touch of minerality as well, lending the wine to the promise of long-term aging.
