2015 Latour à Pomerol, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1302150 96-97 points James Suckling

 Wow. This is clearly the best Latour à Pomerol for over 30 years. Full and fabulously silky, it shows so much depth of fruit and length. It goes on for minutes. Mostly merlot with a touch of cabernet franc.  (4/2016)

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)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast

 Barrel Sample. Dark and packed with tannins, this is a concentrated wine. It shows great power and intensity along with just the right amount of fine acidity to give it the potential for fruits in the future. This wine that will age a long time.  (4/2016)

93-96 points Wine Spectator

 A serious wine, featuring dark fig and currant fruit that has melded beautifully with the ample charcoal and loam notes. Dense but defined, with very lush tannins cascading through the finish. This will take some time to unwind but should be worth the wait.  (4/2016)

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)

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.
