94+   Antonio Galloni for Vinous
“The 2016 Latour à Pomerol is a very beautiful wine. It is also quite a bit more reticent than most Pomerols in this vintage. Savory herb, leather, rose petal, blood orange, cedar, tobacco, menthol and dried cherry lift from the glass. En primeur, the 2016 was quite sensual, whereas today is decidedly powerful and structured. It will be interesting to see where things go in the coming years. One thing is for sure. I would not dream of opening a bottle anytime soon. Drink 2026-2046.” (January 2019)

94    Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Blended of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, the medium garnet-purple colored 2016 Latour à Pomerol is a little reticent to begin, unfolding slowly to give glimpses of warm redcurrants, fresh plums and kirsch scents plus wafts of tar, garrigue and forest floor. Medium-bodied, the palate is tightly wound, offering great freshness and a firm frame of grainy tannins, finishing long and earthy. Drink 2019 – 2039.” (November 2018)

94    Jane Anson for Decanter
“Plush and pumped up, stretching out with those elongated tannins and fresh acidities. Totally gorgeous cassis, blackberry, coffee, peppery spice, slate and tar. It’s muscular and ripped, but with a wonderfully rich, textured quality to the tannins. Very much a physical experience, you are pushing through these flavours one at a time. 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc.” (April 2017)

93    Jeb Dunnuck
“The 2016 Château Latour a Pomerol (96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc) is a beautiful, classic, downright sexy Pomerol. Plenty of black cherries, currants, chocolate, and earthy tobacco notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, plump, rounded beauty that has impeccable balance, ripe, present tannins, loads of sweet fruit, and a great finish. It’s a beauty. Drink 2021-2041.” (March 2019)

91    Neal Martin for Vinous
“The 2016 Latour-à-Pomerol feels a little smudged on the nose compared to its peers, touches of mocha infusing ripe red fruit that doesn’t quite display the energy of the 2015. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine thread of acidity. However, I would not rank this among the best Latour-à-Pomerols in recent years; it needs more vigor and backbone on the finish. Drink 2021-2037.” (January 2019)
