Blueberry, with mineral and dried rose petal, lead to a full body, with chewy, yet polished tannins that go on for minutes. Solid and very pretty. Grows on the palate. Best in years. Very serious indeed
A wine that is smoky and meaty, with hints of dried dark fruits. Full and juicy, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Loads of cocoa character. Balanced and pretty. Try it after 2018. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
Very deep crimson. Rather sumptuous, even ethereal nose. Now we’re getting somewhere with this Moueix range...! Very luscious and complete with real density and substance – and not just sweet and alcoholic. A really good wine. Interest and depths with great but not excessive ripeness and lots of fine tannins.

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.

Tasted at JP Moueix. This has a striking bouquet, exuberant, almost exotic ripe red-berried fruit suffused with apricot, almost marmalade notes, very modernistic in profile yet still well defined. The palate is full-bodied with very ripe red-berried fruit, fine minerality coming through though not quite as well defined towards the finish as I would expect. Very supple and rounded, though not plump, leading to a light peppery aftertaste. Not quite sure how this will evolve, but it will be intriguing to discover... Tasted April 2010.
Dark, ripe fruit with smooth caressing tannins. Length and freshness. Assured quality and value from the Moueix stable. Won't disappoint. Drink 2017-2035
