Chateau Latour a Pomerol 2010 Pomerol(96JS 95WS 92WA)
- Size: 750ml
- Item Code: WN13092412
- Vintage: 2010
Dark and loamy, with fig bread and ganache out front, followed by steeped fig, pastis-soaked plum and Black Forest cake notes, all layered and backed by a long, licorice and graphite-filled finish. Offers more than enough fruit and acidity to soak up the abundant toast. For fans of the big style. Best from 2015 through 2030 (WS)
Elegant loamy soil notes intermixed with sweet cherries as well as hints of underbrush, mocha and mulberry jump from the glass of this pure, medium to full-bodied, dense wine, which possesses good glycerin, flesh and richness. It should drink nicely for up to 15 years. (WA)
Good deep red-ruby. Very ripe but restrained aromas of currant and chocolate. A juicy, seamless midweight with enticing sweetness to its flavors of black raspberry, loam and caramel. Finishes with a firm tannic spine and excellent length. A bit youthfully taut today, this wine should show more flesh and finishing sweetness with five or six years in the bottle. (ST)
