The 2014 Latour a Pomerol has a similar bouquet to the 2014 La Grave-à-Pomerol at first, yet there is immediately more intensity here, still tertiary with scents of warm gravel on a summer's day and black truffle developing with time in the glass. The palate is well structured, a solid backbone here that supports the layers of spicy blackberry and wild strawberry fruit. This is a Pomerol whereby the more I get to know it, the more I fall for its charms and appreciate that tension and energy on the finish. There is a real flourish to this Pomerol that surpasses its showing from barrel.
Elegant loamy soil notes intermixed with sweet cherries as well as hints of underbrush, mocha and mulberry jump from the glass of this pure, medium to full-bodied, dense wine, which possesses good glycerin, flesh and richness. It should drink nicely for up to 15 years. Most of the wines in the Jean-Pierre Moueix stable hit 14.5% natural alcohol in 2010, which was relatively normal for many Right Bank wines dominated by Merlot. Latour a Pomerol’s 2010 is a strong effort from this estate, which seems to be producing outstanding wines on a consistent basis, but nothing yet to remind readers of some of the most profound wines ever made in Bordeaux, the vintages of this estate from 1961, 1959, 1949, 1948 and 1947.

Bordeaux, in the southwest of France, needs little introduction as one of the world's most famous, prestigious and prolific wine regions. The majority of Bordeaux wines (nearly 90 percent of production volume) are the dry, medium- and full-bodied red Bordeaux Blends that established its reputation.

The finest (and most expensive) of these are the wines from the great châteaux of the Haut-Médoc and the Right Bank appellations Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. The former is focused (at the top level) on Cabernet Sauvignon, the latter pair on on Merlot.

The legendary reds are complemented by high-quality white wines based on Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. These range from dry whites to challenge the best from the Burgundy region (Pessac-Léognan is particularly renowned) to the sweet, botrytized nectars of Sauternes.

Pomerol is a small wine appellation located in the Bordeaux region of France. It is known for producing some of the most sought-after wines in the world, particularly its red wines made from the Merlot grape.

The history of Pomerol dates back to the Roman era, when the area was known for its fertile soils and ideal climate for grape growing. However, it wasn't until the 19th century that Pomerol began to gain recognition for its wines. In 1855, Pomerol was not included in the famous Bordeaux Wine Official Classification, which was a list of the best wines in the region. This was largely due to the fact that Pomerol was a relatively unknown appellation at the time. However, this did not deter the winemakers of Pomerol, who continued to produce exceptional wines that would eventually gain worldwide recognition.

The style of production in Pomerol is unique compared to other wine regions in Bordeaux. The vineyards are relatively small, with many of them being family-owned and operated. The winemakers in Pomerol focus on producing high-quality wines that are reflective of the terroir, or the unique characteristics of the soil and climate in the region. The Merlot grape is the dominant variety grown in Pomerol, with smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon also being grown.

The typical wines from Pomerol are red wines that are rich, full-bodied, and complex. They are known for their deep, dark color and intense aromas of black fruit, such as blackberry and black cherry. On the palate, Pomerol wines are often described as having a velvety texture, with flavors of dark fruit, chocolate, and spice. The tannins in Pomerol wines are typically soft and well-integrated, making them approachable even when young.

Some of the most famous wines from Pomerol include Château Pétrus, Château Lafleur, and Château Le Pin. These wines are highly sought-after by collectors and wine enthusiasts around the world, and can command prices that are among the highest in the wine industry.

In conclusion, Pomerol is a unique and special wine appellation that produces some of the most exceptional wines in the world. Its history, style of production, and the grapes grown there all contribute to the distinctive character of Pomerol wines. If you are a fan of red wine, particularly Merlot, then Pomerol is definitely an appellation to explore.
