Chateau Latour a Pomerol Pomerol 2009
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pomerol|
|Brand||Chateau Latour a Pomerol|
Wine SpectatorA nice, old-school style, with roasted mesquite, tobacco leaf and espresso flavors up front, following through to bittersweet ganache and mulled dark currant notes on the still-slightly taut, but well-framed, finish. Should flesh out a bit more with cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2030. 2,200 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastOpulent and ripe fruit that shows all the richness of the vintage. It has weight, spice and delicious red berry fruits. The tannins are certainly dense, but, oh, so sweet.
Wine AdvocateA beautiful wine from the Moueix stable of right bank offerings, the 2009 Latour a Pomerol displays a dense plum/ruby/purple color along with a bouquet of mocha, roasted nuts, wood smoke, truffles and sweet cherries. Full-bodied, round and generous with sweet tannin, considerable power and no hard edges, this is a surprisingly up-front, precocious effort that can be drunk now or cellared for two decades.
