Aromas of violets and dark berries with licorice and sweet black tea ...What really impresses is the sweet fruit in the dense middle palate. So attractive. At the same time, there’s plenty of plush and ripe tannins
Complex blackberries, cassis, flowers, incense, forest floor, and floral notes all soar from this full-bodied, pure, and polished....wonderful purity of fruit, perfect integration of its tannins and acidity, and a blockbuster finish.
Lifted perfume of roses, candied violets and lavender over a core of warm red and black plums, chocolate box, unsmoked cigars... Medium-bodied, the palate exudes polish and sophistication with bags of fragrance, freshness and energy,
Cassis, blackberry and plum reduction notes that will need time to unfurl, during which time the flickers of alder, tobacco and black tea lurking throughout should emerge further. Shows a solid graphite element through the finish.
"Adjoining Petrus, L'Evangile and Vieux-Chateau-Certan it is not surprising that this is one of the top Pomerols"- Clive Coates MW
