CT Latour à Pomerol

Description

Château
Latour à Pomerol

“Where would I place Latour à Pomerol in the context of the other top properties on the Right Bank? It is probably right up there with estates such as Château l’Evangile, Château La Conseillante and Château Certan de May, to place it in its proper context of top domaines in the commune.”
– View From the Cellar, John Gilman

 

“Since 1962, the wines at Latour à Pomerol have been utterly classic examples of the commune, with pure, succulent and plummy fruit, coupled to lovely soil tones, often a nice dollop of chocolate, plenty of cigar-oriented nuances, and with enough bottle age, loads of black truffles in the personality of the wines. ”
– View From the Cellar, John Gilman

 

 

DESCRIPTION:

    • The grapes (90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc) are hand-harvested and then fermented in temperature controlled concrete vats.
    • The wine is then matured in small oak barrels (50% new) for 18 months.
    • It is bottled unfiltered. Latour á Pomerol produces sumptuous, meaty, concentrated and full-bodied Pomerols that often require at least 10 years of cellaring.
    • In the context of other top class Pomerols, they remain under-priced.

GRAPE VARIETY:

    • 90% Merlot
    • 10% Cabernet Franc

FOOD PAIRINGS:

    • Great with lamb.
    • For pairing with Bordeaux, look for the more refined and simply prepared cuts such as loin chops, rib chops and a rack of lamb.
    • These classic dishes can be a divine pairing with Bordeaux.
    • More aromatic, rustic and spicy preparations of lamb often call for a wine with a bit more of a chewy, rustic and herbal character.

TASTING NOTES:

    • Exuberant aromas of plums, tomatoes and nutmeg, with a firm, understated structure of fruit and tannins.
    • Elegant style.
