2015 Latour à Pomerol, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1302150 97 points James Suckling

 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.  (2/2018)

93-96 points Vinous

 The 2015 Latour à Pomerol exudes power and intensity. Beams of tannin give the wine its vertical feel and overall sense of structure. Scents of graphite, smoke, leather and red cherry jam meld into a core of intense fruit as this richly constituted Pomerol shows off its pedigree. All the elements fall into place in this super-expressive Pomerol. Readers can look forward to several decades of exceptional drinking. Latour à Pomerol is 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc.  (4/2016)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

 One of the blockbusters in the Moueix portfolio is the 2015 Latour A Pomerol. A blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc offers full-bodied richness and a ripe, opulent personality that’s already hard to resist. With classic notes of black cherries, bouquet garni, bay leaf and spicy oak, it has gorgeous purity of fruit, sweet tannin, and is a classic Pomerol in the making. Give bottles 2-3 years and enjoy over the following two decades.  (11/2017)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Latour a Pomerol is a blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. It has an intense bouquet: black cherries, kirsch, truffle and a subtle sea spray scent that emerges only with aeration in the glass. The palate is very smooth on the entry. This is a refined and composed, almost graceful Latour-à-Pomerol, silky smooth in texture with layers of spicy black fruit fanning out on the finish. It is likely to be the best wine from this estate in several years - one to look out for once in bottle.  (4/2016)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

 The tannins and richness that are a part of this vintage in Pomerol are very present in this wine. It is dense, packed with dry, firm tannins. At the same time, the fruit is rich with berries and black currants, showing the potential balance of this concentrated wine. Drink from 2026. *Cellar Selection* (RV)  (4/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

 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. (JM)  (3/2018)

92 points Decanter

 The sleeper in the Moueix stable. Generous dark fruit – rich and weighty – but with fine, fresh tannins that are ripe and rounded. Plenty of depth, offering good value.  (2/2017)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
