Latour A Pomerol is an estate of renown in the comparatively small appellate of Pomerol compared to the rest of Bordeaux.
Named after a tower attached to the Chateau, this prime estate was once owned by Marie-Louise Loubat who also owned Petrus. Although in modern times the estate is owned by a catholic charity, JP Moueix has been crafting wine here from the 60's right until this very day.
With a mix of primarily deep gravel over clay these are rich wines with an excellent tannic profile that elegantly unfurls over the years. Fermentation is in a mix of steel and concrete before these see up to 50% new oak for 18 months elevage. True to the Pomerol spirit the blend here is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.
These are consistent wines of boldness and rich tannins that show themselves excellently with age, the brooding nature loosening to warm spices and cedar that punctuate red and black fruits entwined with graphite leather. Elegant and supple from a classic Claret year.
These bottles have excellent labels and fill levels and were recieved in their original timber crate.
