This is a beautiful wine from Latour à Pomerol, an estate which seems to be going from strength to strength under the renewed vigor and leadership of Christian Moueix and his winemaking team. Their 2005 offers gorgeous black cherry and truffle-infused fruit with hints of caramel, mocha and spice. The wine is medium to full-bodied and rich, with velvety tannin, a multi-layered texture, and a long, long finish. It is approaching full maturity, where it should stay for 10-15 years. (RP)
Clean and fresh, with blackberry, sweet tobacco and spices on the nose. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins, a pretty texture and black licorice, spice and filtered coffee character. Racy.
Good dark red. Subdued but complex nose offers raspberry, currant and smoked meat. Rich, plump and sweet but with a firm acid backbone and solid underlying minerality giving shape to this rather large-scaled and mouthfilling wine. Finishes broad and long, with suave tannins. This should gain in focus with eight to ten years in bottle. (ST)
A dry, condensed wine, with oak tannins that show through. There is an element of old wood here that gives some austerity. At the same time, the fruit is certainly ripe and juicy, promising long-term aging potential when the wood and fruit come together.
