Situated on the northern edge of the plateau of Pomerol, nestled between Châteaux Gazin and La Fleur-Pétrus, this wine has been produced by the Moueix family since 1976. The terroir here is cooler than Lagrave and the style of fruit shows.

Latour à Pomerol, which draws its name from the tower that adorns this charming château, was acquired by Mme Loubat in 1917, who at the time also owned Château Petrus. Since its sale in the 1960s... the Moueix family has controlled the winemaking and the distribution of the wines. The vineyard is characterised by the diversity of its soils, which brings complexity and harmony to the wine: gravel and clay on a marvellous parcel next to the church of Pomerol; loam surrounding the château.Duty Status: In BondAvailability: Future Arrival
Lagrange will be one of the vintage’s hottest wines, with scores in the mid 90s from Suckling. We rated the 2020 the best vintage ever for this property. Situated on the northern border of the... Pomerol plateau close to many illustrious neighbours, the vineyard is planted on heavy clay soils, where water retention in 2020 was so important. The vineyard work is meticulous, allowing the grapes to be picked when they are perfectly ripe. Supple, round, generous and fruit-driven, Lagrange is a delightful expression of the lighter style of Pomerol wines, approachable in its youth yet age worthy too.Duty Status: In BondAvailability: Future Arrival
