The 2016 Latour a Pomerol is a blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc this year. I found the nose a little disjointed compared to others, maybe just a touch of leanness here, although it does meld together with aeration and develops attractive mineral/limestone scents that complement the bright red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with gritty tannin on the entry, plenty of tobacco and cedar notes lending it a Left Bank-like personality, a touch rigid towards the finish. Not a bad Latour-à-Pomerol, but to be honest I have tasted better in recent vintages, including the 2014 and 2015.

Ratings
Plush and pumped up, stretching out with those elongated tannins and fresh acidities. Totally gorgeous cassis, blackberry, coffee, peppery spice, slate and tar. It's muscular and ripped, but with a wonderfully rich, textured quality to the tannins. Very much a physical experience, you are pushing through these flavours one at a time. 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Drinking Window 2027 - 2045 94 Points Decanter
Awards
A juicy and refined wine with deep fruit, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Medium-bodied and edgy and bright. Doesn’t possess the power of the 2015 but outstanding. 94 Points James Suckling
