Château Latour à Pomerol is situated near the church of Pomerol on a plateau 130 feet above sea level, where the best grapes of the region are cultivated. It is a winegrowing estate consisting of two main plots: one with light, loam-based soils, which is adjacent to the well-known Chateau La Grave à Pomerol estate, and the other with deep beds of gravel and clay. This is the perfect environment for the vines, which have an average age of 35 years or more, to produce grapes with a diverse spectrum of flavours, thus imparting a complex and appealing structure to the resulting wine.
"This is a fine, fine effort in 2013. The nose offers a concentration of bright, piercingly fresh pure red fruits and then a darker thread of old vine perfume. The palate is measured, silkily firm with a lovely dry density, almost chocolate-succulent and a very, very good balance to the finish.
