1970 Château Latour à  (Pomerol) 94

Concentrated, rich and full, there is a serious depth of flavor here. The nose, with its blend of wet earth, truffle, black cherry and leafy aromas is fabulous. The wine hits your palate in all the right places and stays there, building in intensity. Fully mature, well-stored bottles should be great for at least another decade. 94 Points

Fully mature, this is the perfect moment to enjoy this text book Pomerol. Layers of plush, ripe berries, cocoa, cherry and earth characteristics and a round, silky finish are easily found in this wine. Do not wait to pop a cork, as I do not think there is much to gain. 93 Points

Truffle, chocolate, earth, forest floor and fresh cherry aromas produced a beautiful perfume. Silk and velvet tannins, supple textures and round, chocolate covered plums with the patina of age make this perfectly mature Pomerol, a delicious treat for the senses. There is no reason to age this wine further. Due to the lack of consistency in the wines made at Latour a Pomerol, prices for this wine are more than fair in today's world. If you can find a well stored example, it's worth picking it up. 93 Points
