|Futures - Arriving Spring 2018
96-97 Points, James Suckling: "Wow. This is clearly the best Latour à Pomerol for over 30 years. Full and fabulously silky, it shows so much depth of fruit and length. It goes on for minutes. Mostly merlot with a touch of cabernet franc."
93-96 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2015 Latour à Pomerol exudes power and intensity. Beams of tannin give the wine its vertical feel and overall sense of structure. Scents of graphite, smoke, leather and red cherry jam meld into a core of intense fruit as this richly constituted Pomerol shows off its pedigree. All the elements fall into place in this super-expressive Pomerol. Readers can look forward to several decades of exceptional drinking. Latour à Pomerol is 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc."
93-96 Points, Wine Spectator: "A serious wine, featuring dark fig and currant fruit that has melded beautifully with the ample charcoal and loam notes. Dense but defined, with very lush tannins cascading through the finish. This will take some time to unwind but should be worth the wait."
93-95 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Latour a Pomerol is a blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. It has an intense bouquet: black cherries, kirsch, truffle and a subtle sea spray scent that emerges only with aeration in the glass. The palate is very smooth on the entry. This is a refined and composed, almost graceful Latour-à-Pomerol, silky smooth in texture with layers of spicy black fruit fanning out on the finish. It is likely to be the best wine from this estate in several years - one to look out for once in bottle."
