This wine is stacked with tannins and concentrated fruits, with a dense texture.
...fresh and fruity Clinet with tangy acidity highlighting the plum and cherry character. Reserved style. Medium body, creamy tannins and a delicious finish.
...classic Clinet dark, chocolatey fruit and tobacco notes. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied Pomerol that has firm tannins, solid mid-palate density, and outstanding length.
...red currants, black cherries, plums and cassis with touches of roses, yeast extract, wood smoke and crushed rocks. Medium-bodied with firm, grainy tannins...finishes long with wonderful purity and fragrant earth accents.
At last a wine that really smells of my stereotype of Pomerol: ripe, dark and a little bit meaty...lots of flavour and character, if not a lot of depth.
