|Brand||Chateau Latour a Pomerol|
The 2013 Latour a Pomerol, a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, had a rather sultry, conservative, tertiary bouquet that seems to lack some fruit intensity. In some ways I found a little more aromatic pleasure in the La Grave à Pomerol. The palate is much better: nicely structured with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, crisp and crunchy blackberry and raspberry fruit with spice and bay leaf, segueing into a precise finish whose only intention is to give drinking pleasure. Give this a year for the aromatics to awaken and then drink over the next 10-15 years.

This is solid, with a juicy core of plum sauce, fruit cake and melted red licorice notes that meld nicely together, carried by lightly brambly tannins on the finish. Shows good energy for the vintage.
