Ch Latour a Pomerol
Chateau Latour a Pomerol has a long history in the region that dates all the way back to the mid or late 1800’s when the wine was sold under the name of La-Tour-Pomerol. Chateau Latour a Pomerol is one of the leading Pomerol properties and is now run by Jean-Pierre Moueix, also in charge of Petrus and Trotanoy fame.
Latour a Pomerol consists of just under 8 hectares of vineyards split in to two plots: the first is known as Les Grandes Vignes and is located on a gravel outpost next to the Church of Pomerol. The second plot lies on sandy, lighter soils and is to be found on the western side of the Pomerol plateau. Latour a Pomerol's grapes (90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc) are hand harvested and then fermented in temperature controlled concrete vats.
Latour a Pomerol produces sumptuous, meaty, concentrated and full-bodied Pomerols that often require at least 10 years of cellaring. In the context of other top class Pomerols they remain underpriced.
