...extraordinary intensity and purity of the kirsch liqueur and licorice, the remarkable opulence, the thickness and richness, yet the ability to seem fresh with laser-like precision are all things that must be tasted to be believed...

99Wine Spectator

... a massive, Port-like wine with stunning potential...They just don't make great Bordeaux like this anymore, or very seldom. Plenty of sweet berry, tobacco and olive aromas. Big and chewy...

98Stephen Tanzer

Knockout nose of cherries macerated in alcohol, minerals and truffle; hints at a confectionary sweetness. A wine of extraordinary concentration and power; has the thick extract to buffer its alcohol. Finishes with great grip...

...all richness and fruit as well as the initial ashes and minerals. It seemed in no hurry to stop evolving. Very glorious indeed. Velvety texture...took on richness in the glass and got much fatter.


France, Bordeaux, Pomerol

Pomerol is the smallest of Bordeaux’s red wine producing regions, with only about 2,000 acres of vineyards. Located on the east side of the Dordogne River, it is one of the so-called “right bank” appellations and therefore planted primarily to Merlot. Pomerol is unique in Bordeaux in that it is the only district never to have been rated in a classification system. Some historians think Pomerol’s location on the right bank made it unattractive to Bordeaux-based wine traders, who had plenty of wine from Medoc and Graves to export to England and northern Europe. Since ranking estates was essentially a marketing ploy to help brokers sell wine, ranking an area where they did little business held no interest for them. Pomerol didn’t get much attention from the international wine community until the 1960s, when Jean-Pierre Moueix, an entrepreneurial wine merchant, started buying some of Pomerol’s best estates and exporting the wines. Today the influential Moueix family owns Pomerol’s most famous estate, Château Pétrus, along with numerous other Pomerol estates. Pomerol wines, primarily Merlot blended with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, are considered softer and less tannic than left bank Bordeaux.
