TASTING NOTES

"This steps into an elite league of Pomerol class and concentration, whilst still exuding freshness and transparency. It is a great vintage for Latour à Pomerol. Smells of pristine lightly spiced blueberries and plums and leads to intense flavors of red plums and red cherries cloaked in perfectly integrated spicy oak. Long, regal tannins that are seamless. This is clearly the best Latour à Pomerol for over 30 years. Try from 2023." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2015 Latour à Pomerol is fabulous. Super-ripe red cherry, mint, crushed herbs, licorice and tobacco are all woven together in a fabric of pure and total class as this powerful, explosive Pomerol shows off its arresting beauty. As gorgeous as the 2015 is today, it also is going to need at least a number of years in bottle to be at its very best. The fusion of power and sensuality makes for a compelling Pomerol that is going to drink well for several decades. The 2015 has much to say, all it needs is time." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"A blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Latour à Pomerol has an earthy/meaty nose of chargrilled meats, fertile loam, fungi and beef drippings over a core of blackberry preserves, cassis and pencil shavings plus a touch of tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers tons of savory layers with a firm, chewy structure and a lively line cutting through the tightly wound flavors, finishing long and earthy." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Starts with a bright, fresh floral note followed by a range of fig, cherry and plum compote flavors. Becomes progressively denser and fleshier through the finish, with melted licorice, loam and roasted apple wood details taking over, ending with a long swath of all the elements pulled together. For the cellar. Best from 2022 through 2035. 2,517 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Mid crimson. Very aromatic and lifted. Very juicy and satisfying even if not that intense." JancisRobinson.com
