2010 Latour à Pomerol, Pomerol

SKU #1341842 96 points James Suckling

 Gorgeous nose with strawberries, toasted hazelnuts and milk chocolate. Black currant, sweet licorice and lots of flowers. Great fruit and full body on the palate with a structure that just keeps adding layers of fruit and minerals. Very silky tannins and wonderful intense finish. It's about great harmony in this wine. Best Latour a Pomerol in years. Drink from 2017.  (3/2013)

95 points Wine Spectator

 Dark and loamy, with fig bread and ganache out front, followed by steeped fig, pastis-soaked plum and Black Forest cake notes, all layered and backed by a long, licorice and graphite-filled finish. Offers more than enough fruit and acidity to soak up the abundant toast. For fans of the big style. Best from 2015 through 2030.  (3/2013)

91-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good, full ruby-purple. Perfumed nose of blackcurrant, violet and sweet spices. Large-scaled, rich and sweet, with terrific creamy depth even if it's not yet fully expressing its ripe, seamless blackberry, coffee and truffle flavors. The very smooth tannins are smothered in fruit on the clean, long finish. This strikes me as one of the best La Tour a Pomerols in years.  (6/2011)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Elegant loamy soil notes intermixed with sweet cherries as well as hints of underbrush, mocha and mulberry jump from the glass of this pure, medium to full-bodied, dense wine, which possesses good glycerin, flesh and richness. It should drink nicely for up to 15 years.  (2/2013)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Solidly based on its firm tannins, this is an impressive wine. Acidity and blackberry fruits are sewn together by the tannic structure. There is a touch of minerality as well, lending the wine to the promise of long-term aging.  (3/2013)

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.
