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.
James Suckling 94-95
The 2020 Latour à Pomerol is a rich, heady wine that appears to still be coming together. It offers tons of depth, but a bit less in the way of cohesion. Blackberry jam, chocolate, new leather and spice give the 2020 plenty of layers, while a whole range of savory accents add aromatic presence on the virile finish. Time in the glass brings out the wine's creaminess nicely. [Antonio Galloni, 01/06/2021]
