Unlike the Cabernets of Bordeaux, 1998 was an exceptional year for Merlot. The wines produced are rich and muscular, showing surprisingly much more power than those from the Medoc that year.
Having received 90+ points from Parker and Winespectator, the vintage does really speak for itself. Latour’s 1998 Pomerol is said to be one of the best wines from this Chateau in the past few decades.
A harmonious symphony of leather and concentrated black cherry fruit and caramel hits the nose. The body is full and nuanced with velvety tannins. Wet earth and graphite aromas. A wine to enjoy for the pure joy of it. Otherwise, it is beautifully paired with slow cooked beef ribs or game.
