Chateau Latour a Pomerol 2011
€ 67,76 (incl. Vat)
|Brand||Chateau Latour a Pomerol|
This well-known estate, long owned by the Jean-Pierre Moueix family, has been making strides over recent vintages to hopefully get back to the legendary quality level of vintages in the late forties, fifties, and early sixties. The 2011 possesses a healthy dark ruby/plum color, a broad, expansive mouthfeel, and plenty of jammy cherry, spice, earth and truffle notes. Rich, medium-bodied, pure and front end-loaded, this seductive effort can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years.
Shows good density, with raspberry, bitter plum coulis and red currant paste notes that lend a slightly compact feel for now. The lively spice and rooibos tea hints that line the finish should emerge more with cellaring.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
