Deep garnet-purple in color and composed of 100% Merlot, the 2017 Latour à Pomerol leaps from the glass with expressive scents of baked plums, warm black cherries and boysenberries with wafts of fallen leaves, bouquet garni and fertile loam. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating, muscular black fruits with a firm backbone of rounded tannins and a long, minerally finish.

Tannins dominate this dense wine, giving weight to the black fruits and the dark-chocolate flavors. They also boost the blackberry fruits and acidity that bring in the balance to this fine wine. Drink from 2023.
