mid strength fruitcake and blackcurrant smell with 1 hr decant-palate showed lean blackcurrant with lovely medicinal type fruitcake overtones and some length-not as full as VCC 1998 but certainly hinting at it
I had just participated in a big public tasting which disappointed me and went for some Bordeaux- the Latour-à-Pomerol 1994 was the selected choice for Saturday night wine and delivered brilliantly with the steaks we had.

(Chateau Latour à Pomerol Pomerol) Dark, not quite opaque at the core, and showing a wide rim of pallor. Very dense, minerally and claretty on the nose, which opens out to give something more smoky and chewy. It is slightly spicy on the palate, with a little fruitcake note, but with plenty of structure and tannin. A sweet, almost exotic midpalate, the texture carrying through onto the finish. Serious wine which needs five years plus in the cellar.
