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.
...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...
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...
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.
Very dark blackish crimson. High-toned nose – rather reminiscent of lilies – and extremely savoury. Drying rather than sweet. Uncompromising and long term.
"Adjoining Petrus, L'Evangile and Vieux-Chateau-Certan it is not surprising that this is one of the top Pomerols"- Clive Coates MW
