RATINGS

98James Suckling

Beautiful nose with cocoa powder, exotic flowers, candied violets & loads of dark berries. Great aromatic complexity. Amazing texture on palate with a superb precision & silky tannins. So beautifully composed showing already great harmony.

96Robert M. Parker Jr.

...floral, elegant mulberry, black raspberry and sweet kirsch notes... ...licorice, subtle new oak and a hint of forest floor... ...medium to full-bodied, rich, complex wine that has striking aromatics and perfect balance in the mouth...

96Wine Spectator

Features substantial but very velvety structure running from start to finish, delivering a muscular feel for now. The hard edges are fully absorbed by the core of plum sauce, steeped blackberry and warm boysenberry...

93+ Stephen Tanzer

Rich aromas of plum, raspberry, mocha and chocolate are energized by minerals and peppery spices. A saline, suave, youthfully restrained midweight, with terrific floral cabernet franc lift contributing the impression of class and focus.

17Jancis Robinson

Very dark blackish crimson. High-toned nose – rather reminiscent of lilies – and extremely savoury. Drying rather than sweet. Uncompromising and long term.

REGION

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.

"Adjoining Petrus, L'Evangile and Vieux-Chateau-Certan it is not surprising that this is one of the top Pomerols"- Clive Coates MW
