Chateau Latour a Pomerol 2015

Member Review by Val13:

Don't overchill this one. Medium acidity and body, slight oak on nose and tinge of minerality is balanced with lemon and fruit flavors. Better as an accompaniment to food than by itself.

A friend ask me once if he should purchase some of the Latour 1998. My first answer was no, but after the seller gave him an extra discount on the wine, he thought at this price, there's no harm. So, last night, he kindly brought a bottle for us to try and even though this was not the finest Latour ever made, I have once again realise, that with good company and good food, the first great growths are always (no matter the vintage) simply great wines. The nose was slightly closed at first, developing aromas of blackcurrant, tar, dark chocolate and coffee. The structure is fairly light and silky with tannins still a little dry, but well integrated. Alcohol levels are not overwhelming, but balanced with some acidity on the mid palate. More flavors of blackcurrant, dark cherries and coffee bean. The length is short and probably the major disapointment on this wine, missing the impressive finish of Latour from greater vintages. A wine to enjoy now and for another 3 to 4 years. QC

drunk 17/4/2010. wine has moderately interesting nose in riper fatter style but quite short; in the mouth has good texture quite sweet but fruit ( if ever present) is fading fast. a poor year, I think did not cost my guest too much. drink up and do not serve for special occasion

Tasted February 2008: This wine is typical of the vintage, subdued and herbaceous, better on the nose than in the mouth, with some recognisable Pomerol qualities but on the whole lacking charm, fruit and concentration and with a dry and rather bitter finish. Certainly much too expensive for its quality; tasted blind, however, a good wine. Not for keeping, drink soon.

A beautiful bouquet of sweet black currants cedar wood licorice truffles and kirsch soars from this dense ruby/plum/purple-colored 2012. Round and generously endowed with medium to full body sweet tannin and an endearing seductive style this blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc should keep for 12-15 years. -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

This barrel sample shows a solid core of fruit in the center palate with gorgeous tannins. Wonderful cashmere texture. Not the 2010 but not that far away in quality. James Suckling.

Juicy with a nice compact feel to the core of raspberry blackberry and anise lined with solid fine-grained grip and backed by a long bergamot- and black tea

Offers both guts and charm with a very solid core of plum cake fig and cassis laced with hints of ganache and roasted spice notes. There s a nice mouthfilling feel through the finish with more oomph and drive than most. Tasted non-blind.-J.M. Wine Spectator.

The bouquet of this wine is extremely enticing with plush and pure fruit aromas along with underlying minerals that weave in and out. These same components repeat on the palate with a sense of purity and length that is quite compelling, and the focus... Chuck Hayward.

The bouquet of this wine is extremely enticing with plush and pure fruit aromas along with underlying minerals that weave in and out. These same components repeat on the palate with a sense of purity and length that is quite compelling and the focused flavors are elegant with just the barest sense of breadth across the palate. Meanwhile the long finish tapers gently propelled by the finest of tannins and just the right amount of acid. Beautifully poised and looking incredible at this point. Will provide excitement over the next twenty years. Chuck Hayward.
