Chateau Latour a Pomerol Pomerol 2009
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pomerol|
|Brand||Chateau Latour a Pomerol|
A nice, old-school style, with roasted mesquite, tobacco leaf and espresso flavors up front, following through to bittersweet ganache and mulled dark currant notes on the still-slightly taut, but well-framed, finish. Should flesh out a bit more with cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2030. 2,200 cases made.
Opulent and ripe fruit that shows all the richness of the vintage. It has weight, spice and delicious red berry fruits. The tannins are certainly dense, but, oh, so sweet.
