Robert Parker 92
"There is not much produced, but if you can latch onto a bottle, the 2009 Pauillac offers a great introduction to what Engerer and Pinault have achieved at this Pauillac first-growth property (the smallest first-growth in the Medoc). It exhibits notes of unsmoked cigar tobacco, cedar, forest floor, black currants, sweet cherries and a hint of charcoal. Enjoy it over the next decade."
James Suckling 92
"Juicy and rich, with a velvety tannins. Full and round, with lots of juicy fruit and meat, blackberries and currants. Classified growth quality. Broad shoulder. Third wine of Latour. Better in 2016."
Wine Spectator 90
"This has a smoky lead-in, with crushed plum, lively briar and toasty spice notes pushing through the juicy, medium-weight finish. There's deceptive length, with a lovely silky edge. Drink now through 2017."
Neal Martin 90
"Tasted at the chateau. The Pauillac de Latour has good concentration on the nose with dark berries, mocha, cranberry and raspberry fruit with fine definition. Fine structure, slightly chalky tannins, crisp and dry on the graphite tinged finish with good length. This may be released before the 2008 and it is well worth picking up. Tasted November 2011."
