Winemaker's Notes

This wine is made up of 90% Merlot - 10% Cabernet Franc.

Critical Acclaim

"An outstanding, medium to full-bodied effort, the 2000 Latour a Pomerol exhibits a plum/purple color, admirable texture, medium to full body, and notes of caramels, truffles, sweet earth, and cola interwoven with black cherry liqueur and plums. Pure, deep, and classic, with moderately high tannin in the finish, patience is essential. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020."
91 Points

"Good red-ruby. Very ripe nose of bitter cherry, raspberry, mocha and tobacco leaf. Concentrated and sweet, with excellent texture and volume and a gamey hint of leesy reduction. In an awkward stage today, showing a light leafy quality. Best on the very sweet, lingering finish, where the substantial tannins are nicely supported by the wine's flesh."
90 Points
