2017 Château Latour à Pomerol
The vineyard is characterized by the diversity of its soils, which brings complexity and harmony to the wine: gravel and clay for a marvelous parcel next to the church of Pomerol; loam surrounding the château.
The vineyard receives the same care applied to all the J.P. Moueix properties: leaf-thinning and green-harvesting to allow for optimal grape maturity followed by a manual harvest. The wine ferments in concrete vats before being aged in oak barrels.
Château Latour à Pomerol is known for producing generous, concentrated wines that strike a perfect balance between elegance and power.
Antonio Galloni - "The 2017 Latour à Pomerol is a gorgeous wine that is at once deep and yet also super-expressive in its bouquet. Sweet tobacco, dried herbs, mint, pepper and spice give the 2017 striking aromatic presence to play off a core of ripe red cherry fruit. Medium in body yet wonderfully deep and fleshy, the 2017 has so much to offer. I like it as much from bottle as I did from barrel."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Deep garnet-purple in color and composed of 100% Merlot, the 2017 Latour à Pomerol leaps from the glass with expressive scents of baked plums, warm black cherries and boysenberries with wafts of fallen leaves, bouquet garni and fertile loam. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating, muscular black fruits with a firm backbone of rounded tannins and a long, minerally finish."
Wine Enthusiast - "Tannins dominate this dense wine, giving weight to the black fruits and the dark-chocolate flavors. They also boost the blackberry fruits and acidity that bring in the balance to this fine wine. Drink from 2023."
Wine Spectator - "Inviting, with incense and warm plum aromas leading the way, followed by velvet-textured blackberry and fig fruit flavors. Ganache, tobacco and warm earth notes fill in through the finish, melding nicely with the fruit. Best from 2022 through 2038. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,000 cases made."
