Tasting Notes and Scores

90-93

Wine Advocate

A promising effort, the 2021 Latour à Pomerol unwinds in the glass with aromas of rich berry fruit mingled with licorice, sweet soil tones and exotic spices. Medium to full-bodied, supple and lively, it's framed by powdery, youthfully firm tannins that assert themselves on the finish. If it fleshes out appreciably with élevage it may make my score seem conservative.

The 2021 Latour à Pomerol was picked 23 September to 1 October. Recent vintages have been a tad inconsistent, though I appreciate the aromatics here, cohesive with black cherries, kirsch and maybe just a very slight VA element giving it a kick. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, velvety smooth with modest depth. What is missing is a crescendo on the finish, an instrument restricted to the same few notes. Structured and linear on the finish. Not bad…but give me more (please).

Antonio Galloni

The 2021 Latour à Pomerol is a very beautiful and promising wine. As always, Latour à Pomerol has a distinctive classical strictness to it, and yet the 2021 has just enough mid-palate pliancy to pull it off. Sweet red cherry fruit, blood orange, spice, menthol and dried flowers all grace this very promising, elegant Pomerol. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2022

Attractive nose with width and texture, a successful Pomerol that has depth to its blueberry and black cherry fruits. Needs time to soften the plentiful tannins that are a touch austere right now. No chaptilisation, no press wine across the whole Moueix range this year (which is not always the case, as they use press in some years unlike, for example, Cheval Blanc that never does). Harvest September 23 to October 1, 8ha of gravel and clay, and clay-sand/loam soils.
