Other Reviews....
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). Drink 2028-2042.

Already delicious, with very fine-grained, powdery tannins. Creamy. Juicy walnuts, blueberries, almonds and dried flowers. Medium to full body. Lengthy finish. Long and deep.

The 2021 Château Latour A Pomerol offers a darker core of fruits (cherries, currants) as well as some smoky, herbal, and tobacco nuances. With background oak, medium-bodied richness, outstanding balance, and a great finish, it's another impeccably put together wine from the Moueix team.

Flowers, dark cherries, cocoa, and ripe, sweet black and red plums create the nose. On the palate, the wine is silky, fresh, soft and energetic, with layers of supple-textured, vibrant red fruits along with earthy nuances on the backend. Drink from 2024-2041.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider

Cocoa powder-dusted blackcurrants on the nose, some baking spices and a gentle smoked aroma too. Round and generous on the palate, the tannins so sleek and fine, delivering a fresh, cool blue fruit flavour with a wet stone texture that almost cleans the tongue in its distinction. This has a dark mid-palate, the black liquorice and touches of bitter dark chocolate giving it a serious nature, while the fruit is more redcurrant and red cherry in nature. Together with the acidity, it keeps the overall frame vibrant. So many aspects of Merlot coming through in this vintage. Lots of energy here with a touch of cinnamon and clove spice on the finish giving detail. This will need time to come around, the austerity poking through slightly but extremely well structured. Drink 2026 - 2048.
