Grapes Merlot 90%, Cab Franc 10% Tasting Note Bright red cherry, raspberry and expressive floral notes from the Cab Franc are some of the signature notes. A wine of precision, tension and energy, exudes class. Hints of white pepper and cranberry add further brightness as the wine gradually opens up.

Description

Originating from the estate of the Chambaud family in the 18th century, the sole heiress to the estate married Louis Garitey in 1875, who remained owners until Garitey's death in 1914 when the property was divided into three parts. The estate is first mentioned in the 1890 edition of Crocks and Feret where it was ranked among the best estates of Pomerol. One part of the estate acquired in 1917 by Madame Edmond Loubat, she bought additions to the property with the estate named Haut-Canton-Guillot adjacent to Trotanoy and Clos des Grandes-Vignes near Pomerol's church, that together form the present Latour-à-Pomerol property. Mme Loubat was also then proprietor of Chateau Petrus, and the two properties have been closely associated since their reputation were established during and after WW2. The estate was inherited by her niece, Madame Lily Lacoste, in 1961, who remained the owner for 40 years before she donated the estate to the Fondation de Foyers de Charité de Châteauneuf de Galaure in 2002.
