2009 Latour à Pomerol, Pomerol

SKU #1108249 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A wine that is smoky and meaty, with hints of dried dark fruits. Full and juicy, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Loads of cocoa character. Balanced and pretty. Try it after 2018. Inner quote mark (3/2012)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Opulent and ripe fruit that shows all the richness of the vintage. It has weight, spice and delicious red berry fruits. The tannins are certainly dense, but, oh, so sweet. (RV) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A nice, old-school style, with roasted mesquite, tobacco leaf and espresso flavors up front, following through to bittersweet ganache and mulled dark currant notes on the still-slightly taut, but well-framed, finish. Should flesh out a bit more with cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2030. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2012)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A beautiful wine from the Moueix stable of right bank offerings, the 2009 Latour a Pomerol displays a dense plum/ruby/purple color along with a bouquet of mocha, roasted nuts, wood smoke, truffles and sweet cherries. Full-bodied, round and generous with sweet tannin, considerable power and no hard edges, this is a surprisingly up-front, precocious effort that can be drunk now or cellared for two decades. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark red. Superripe aromas of plum, black raspberry, mocha, herbs and spices. Then dense and backward on the palate, with a restrained sweetness to the rich flavors of bitter cherry and menthol. Some herbal nuances contribute to the wine's serious mien. Finishes with firm tannic spine and late notes of woodsmoke and tobacco. Very young, and a tough read today. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (7/2012)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very deep crimson. Rather sumptuous, even ethereal nose. Now we’re getting somewhere with this Moueix range...! Very luscious and complete with real density and substance – and not just sweet and alcoholic. A really good wine. Interest and depths with great but not excessive ripeness and lots of fine tannins. 17.5/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2010)

K&L Notes

94 points from Neal Martin, Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the offices of JP Moueix. The Latour-a-Pomerol 2009 has a very intense bouquet, real “thrust” from the glass with dark cherries, graphite, dried rose petals and a touch of cassis. Very fine definition and sense of mineralite. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, very fine symmetry, dark berries, summer fruit, crushed stone with a touch of citrus peel towards the finish. Masculine, almost austere finish suggesting that this is a Pomerol to put away. Tasted September 2011." (01/2012)
