Château Latour a Pomerol 2009 (RP:92)


Château Latour à Pomerol酒莊是Pomerol地區的著名酒莊之一,命名與一級莊Château Latour作區分。
這座迷人的城堡由一座小塔裝飾,靠近Pomerol村莊中的教堂。酒莊由著名的PETRUS擁有者Loubat夫人於1917年收購,稍後由她的侄女Lacoste夫人擁有40年之久,直至於2002年將酒莊捐贈給Chateauneuf de Galaure基金會。
葡萄園於1956年的霜凍後完全重新種植並釀製。Jean-Pierre MOUEIX自1962年以來就在葡萄園耕作,為葡萄園帶來了基本護理和專業知識。以混凝土罐中進行溫和發酵後,33%的葡萄酒在新橡木桶中陳釀。

2009年(Robert Parker's rating: 92 points):
2009年的Latour a Pomerol呈現出濃厚的紅寶石到梅子般的紫色,帶有摩卡咖啡、烤堅果、煙熏木材、松露和甜櫻桃香氣。酒體飽滿、圓潤、大方,單寧甜美,力量強勁但不帶棱角。具有令人驚訝的前瞻性,可立即飲用或陳年二十年後再享用。

Château Latour à Pomerol is a leading property in Pomerol, named as such to distinguish it from the first growth Château Latour.
This charming chateau, embellished by a small tower, is located close to the church in the village of Pomerol. Acquired in 1917 by Mrs. Loubat, the then famous proprietor of PETRUS, the vineyard was owned by her niece, Mrs. Lacoste, for 40 years before she donated it to the Fondation de Foyers de Charité de Chateauneuf de Galaure in 2002.
The vineyard, with an average age of 35 years, is characterised by its soil diversity: rather loamy soil around the chateau itself and more gravelly and clayey on the best blocks near the church.
Farming the property since 1962, Ets. Jean-Pierre MOUEIX brings the usual care and expertise to the vineyard - entirely replanted after the 1956 frost - and to the cellar. After a gentle fermentation in concrete tanks, the young wine is aged in 33% new oak barrels.

Tasting Notes:
2009 Vintage (Robert Parker's rating: 92 points):
A beautiful wine from the Moueix stable of right bank offerings, the 2009 Latour a Pomerol displays a dense plum/ruby/purple color along with a bouquet of mocha, roasted nuts, wood smoke, truffles and sweet cherries. Full-bodied, round and generous with sweet tannin, considerable power and no hard edges, this is a surprisingly up-front, precocious effort that can be drunk now or cellared for two decades.
