Chateau Latour a Pomerol 2010
|Brand||Chateau Latour a Pomerol|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
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.
Most of the wines in the Jean-Pierre Moueix stable hit 14.5% natural alcohol in 2010, which was relatively normal for many Right Bank wines dominated by Merlot. Latour a Pomerol’s 2010 is a strong effort from this estate, which seems to be producing outstanding wines on a consistent basis, but nothing yet to remind readers of some of the most profound wines ever made in Bordeaux, the vintages of this estate from 1961, 1959, 1949, 1948 and 1947.
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.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
