Rich, deep, dark, concentrated and packed with layers of black and red plums, chocolate, licorice, truffle and tobacco leaf in the nose, on the palate, this is where the action really takes place with its silky, full, vibrant mouth-feel. The wine finishes with layers of chocolate covered black cherries and plums drizzled with chocolate and a touch of espresso that comes in at the end. This is going to age and evolve for decades.

The truffles say hello with little effort before discovering all the voluptuous black cherries, ripe plums, dark cocoa, flowers and accents of juicy kirsch and more dark chocolate in the endnote.

Elegant, silky, opulent, polished and sensuous, this is Pomerol! The concentrated plum and black cherry fruits are refined, fresh and velvety with the right amount of chocolate, espresso and truffle to boot. This is the best Latour Pomerol since the sublime 1970.

If you're not familiar with this wine in its current incarnation, you're missing out. Starting with 2009, this wine has been on a tear, progressing and improving with every vintage. Even in a difficult year of devastating frost, this is a beauty. There is a silky, plush, velvety quality to the fruit, paired with purity and sweetness that stands out. You should give this 3-5 years or more in the cellar and the wine should hit the top of my range.

Relatively unevolved, though the fruit and tannins are so ripe, it is easy to enjoy its waves of earthy black and red cherries, truffle, cocoa, licorice and black coffee. Rich, lush and round, this will probably begin to show its true essence by 2025 or so.

Fully developed, the wine opens with cocoa-dusted roses, black raspberries, truffle, and herbal notes. With air, the wine develops strong mint notes. Medium-bodied, soft, easy to drink, with a dusty edge to the sweet red fruits, licorice, wet earth, green, leafy herbs, olives and wild cherries in the soft, fresh finish. This is at the peak of maturity, there is no reason to hesitate and not open a bottle, if you have any. Drink from 2023-2028.

I like the wine. I really like this style, with its nose of roses, hints of truffle, smoke, cherries and burning wood. The soft, silky texture really hits the spot. If only the wine were a bit more concentrated, this would be a stunner. At close to 17, this is in the sweet spot. You can age it for a few more years, but it's not necessary. Just pop, pour and enjoy.

Truffles, chocolate, dried roses, tobacco, and black cherries popped in the nose. But, the showstopper here is the silky, sensuous textures that made the perfect backdrop for the earthy, black cherries, cocoa, Indian spice, peppercorns, and touch of leafy herbs in the finish.

When did this wine become so expensive? I remember buying this just a few years ago for a song. I guess others have caught on to how good this is.

The perfume included scents of plums, herbs, chocolate, cedar and red fruits. The rich mouth feel was elegant. The palate swam in a river of cherries, strawberries & raspberry fruits. However, to be truthful, the nose was better than the palate. I've had better bottles of his wine. This bottle seemed to have matured prematurely.

Fully mature, this is a perfect example of old school Pomerol. The complex array of scents, starts and finishes with truffles, dark chocolate, truffle and cigar box aromatics. The full bodied wine has length, freshness, charm and plush textures. Closing in on 50 years of age, this is stunning.

If you're looking for a perfectly mature Pomerol that is on its way to 50 years of age, look no further than this beauty. With a beautiful wealth of earthy, truffled plums and a hint of cocoa and tobacco in the nose, the wine is round, plush and finishes with loads of sweet, earthy black cherries. While fully mature, there is more than enough stuffing for at least 10-15 more years of great drinking, if the bottles are well stored.

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.

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.

Sensuous, multi-layered, deep, rich and ostentatious, the wine seems like it was made from truffles, fresh, perfectly ripe cherries, dark chocolate and overripe plums. Texturally, this is off the hook.
