Tasted at the Latour-a-Pomerol vertical in London. The 1998 Latour-a-Pomerol was served alongside the 2000 and 2005 and to be honest, it does not quite stack up against those audacious wines. It has a decadent nose, sweet and rich with dried fig permeating the black cherries and bilberry scents, a touch more glycerine than those aforementioned younger vintages. There is an almost Napa-like personality to this Pomerol (something that several 1998s have exhibited). The palate is founded on a sweet core of red and black fruit: notes of creme de cassis and blueberry, silky smooth and sensual, but not quite delivering the delineation and precision on the finish, just a touch too lush. That said, it is still a very good Pomerol, but one that does not possess the sophistication of the top vintages. Tasted December 2015. Oct 2016, www.robertparker.com
