2009 Château Latour à Pomerol
- Cabernet Franc,
- Critic Rating
2009 has been a turning point vintage for Château Latour à Pomerol. A small, yet highly renowned estate in the glorious appellation of Pomerol in Bordeaux, Château Latour à Pomerol has shared ownership in the past – and the same management company in more recent years – with the famous Château Petrus.
The estate has had ups and downs in its long history in Bordeaux. However, the 2009 vintage represents the wine that brought the estate back to the glory of the past after several years of inconsistency. And that is the reason why we decided to add this specific bottle to our selected catalogue. A blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, this wine displays notes of dark and red fruit with a spicy finish. We suggest to be enjoyed alongside hard cheese or a juicy beef burger. But we wouldn’t discard at all the chance of having few sips while tucking into a hot Italian pizza.
This 2009 vintage can be a nice topic to share a good story about during a date, but can also represent a special treat, ideally for a weekend.
