The Latour à Pomerol estate is planted to 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc with an average vine age of 40 years. In its heyday of the 1940s, 50s and 60s, the wine's majestic style was often compared to Château Pétrus. Today, it typically compares to Châteaux Trotanoy or Lafleur Pétrus, but at a much lower price. Farmed and managed by the quality-driven Jean-Pierre Moueix firm of Château Pétrus fame, 2015 Latour à Pomerol is a great vintage to cellar and drink from 2020-2035+.

James SucklingThis steps into an elite league of Pomerol class and concentration, whilst still exuding freshness and transparency. It is a great vintage for Latour à Pomerol. Smells of pristine lightly spiced blueberries and plums and leads to intense flavors of red plums and red cherries cloaked in perfectly integrated spicy oak. Long, regal tannins that are seamless. This is clearly the best Latour à Pomerol for over 30 years. Try from 2023.

Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. The tannins and richness that are a part of this vintage in Pomerol are very present in this wine. It is dense, packed with dry, firm tannins. At the same time, the fruit is rich with berries and black currants, showing the potential balance of this concentrated wine. Drink from 2026.

VinousThe 2015 Latour à Pomerol is fabulous. Super-ripe red cherry, mint, crushed herbs, licorice and tobacco are all woven together in a fabric of pure and total class as this powerful, explosive Pomerol shows off its arresting beauty. As gorgeous as the 2015 is today, it also is going to need at least a number of years in bottle to be at its very best. The fusion of power and sensuality makes for a compelling Pomerol that is going to drink well for several decades. The 2015 has much to say, all it needs is time.

Jeb DunnuckOne of the blockbusters in the Moueix portfolio is the 2015 Latour A Pomerol. A blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc offers full-bodied richness and a ripe, opulent personality that’s already hard to resist. With classic notes of black cherries, bouquet garni, bay leaf and spicy oak, it has gorgeous purity of fruit, sweet tannin, and is a classic Pomerol in the making. Give bottles 2-3 years and enjoy over the following two decades.

DecanterThe tannins here are still locked and loaded, but they are softly covered by silky fruits, enrobed in the prettiest of fashions. Big, bristling and bright, it will take its time and go the distance. 50% new oak.

Wine SpectatorStarts with a bright, fresh floral note followed by a range of fig, cherry and plum compote flavors. Becomes progressively denser and fleshier through the finish, with melted licorice, loam and roasted apple wood details taking over, ending with a long swath of all the elements pulled together. For the cellar. Best from 2022 through 2035. 2,517 cases made.

Wine AdvocateA blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Latour à Pomerol has an earthy/meaty nose of chargrilled meats, fertile loam, fungi and beef drippings over a core of blackberry preserves, cassis and pencil shavings plus a touch of tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers tons of savory layers with a firm, chewy structure and a lively line cutting through the tightly wound flavors, finishing long and earthy.
