Chateau Latour a Pomerol Pomerol 2004
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pomerol|
|Brand||Chateau Latour a Pomerol|
Wine EnthusiastA big, dry wine, firm, and not offering much fruit at this stage. It is obviously concentrated, and as it evolves, the fruit will develop richness. This small, 20-acre property is mainly situated on gravel soils next to Pomerol church, at the heart of the appellation.
Wine SpectatorFirm and structured, with lovely fruit and a mineral undertone. Full-bodied and chewy, with a long finish.
Wine AdvocateThe dark plum/purple-tinged 2004 exhibits sweet aromas of mulberries, caramel, and road tar. It reveals jagged tannins in its medium-bodied, spicy, moderately tannic personality. It requires several years of bottle age, after which it will age for a decade.
