Pomerol

Regular price ₱8,795

TASTING NOTES:


Wine Rating: RP 91 points
Drink by: 2011 - 2021

Probably a sleeper of the vintage, the medium to full-bodied, pure 2008 reveals notes of almond paste intermixed with black currants, sweet cherries, caramel and mocha as well as an attractive texture and density. Consume it over the next decade.


Latour à Pomerol, which draws its name from the tower that adorns this charming Château, was acquired by Mme Loubat, who also owned Château Petrus, in 1917. Etablissements Jean-Pierre Moueix has farmed the vineyard since 1962.

The vineyard is characterised by the diversity of its soils, which brings complexity and harmony to the wine: gravel and clay for a marvellous parcel next to the church of Pomerol; loam surrounding the Château. The vineyard receives the same care applied to all the J.P. Moueix properties: leaf-thinning and green-harvesting to allow for optimal grape maturity followed by a manual harvest. The wine ferments in concrete vats before being aged in oak barrels.

Château Latour à Pomerol is known for producing generous, concentrated wines that strike a perfect balance between elegance and power.
