1998 Latour à Pomerol, Pomerol

SKU #1009120 94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tar, berry and dry stone aromas, with wet earth. Full-bodied, thick and chewy, with velvety tannins. Big and rustic, but I like this textbook Latour à Pomerol. Best in decades. Best after 2008. Inner quote mark (1/2001)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This might have a chance of hitting a magical outstanding score, as the wine still seems to be holding back much of its potential. A deep ruby/purple with a distinctive, very singular nose of wet steel, licorice, spice box, Provencal herbs, and roasted black fruits, as the wine hits the palate, there is generosity, ripeness, and purity, with sweet black fruits intermixed with cedar, earth, and some subtle herbs. Medium to full body and excellent richness are the hallmarks, but the wine’s tannic structure and level of stringency have kept my scores conservative. In any event, I am still waiting for this wine to emerge from behind its cloak of tannin, which is formidable. This could be a top effort for Latour a Pomerol if everything comes together. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020. Last tasted, 1/02. (RP, Bordeaux Book) Inner quote mark (1/2003)
