Latour a Pomerol 2007
Tasting Notes and Scores
A solid, muscular wine with lots of robust herb, damp earth, truffle, black cherry, and black currant characteristics, this meaty 2007 reveals an unusual (for the vintage) tannic structure. It will benefit from 1-2 years of bottle age, and should keep for 10-15 years.
The 2007 Latour-à-Pomerol has a well-defined bouquet with earthy red berry fruit mixed with orange blossom and strawberry pastilles. There is commendable definition here, if not the vigor of a top vintage. The palate has a savory, almost dried blood tincture on the entry. There is fine tension and impressive harmony leading to a poised and autumnal finish. Drink this over the next 5-8 years. Tasted March 2015.
