|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pomerol|
|Brand||Chateau Latour a Pomerol|
Wine AdvocateProbably a sleeper of the vintage, the medium to full-bodied, pure 2008 reveals notes of almond paste intermixed with black currants, sweet cherries, caramel and mocha as well as an attractive texture and density. Consume it over the next decade.
Wine EnthusiastWith its solid dark tannins wound around ripe black stone fruits, the wine shows an almost sweet character in its richness. The classic acidity of the year powers through the tannins and the fruit, giving greater complexity.
Wine SpectatorRock-solid, delivering delicious plum sauce, raspberry and linzer torte notes rounded off by spice and graphite. The fleshy, enticing finish has good length. Drink now through 2015. 2,500 cases made.
