Review

A Pomerol made from the only Merlot, which should appeal to lovers of niche wines. This cuvée reveals to the olfaction a deep bouquet mixing fruity tones, peppery, empyreumatic and floral. With a tonic and tasty attack, the palate develops a dense flesh, leaning against tannins coated and deploys a superb and very long finish. A complete Pomerol, without false note, of a rare harmony. “Guide Hachette des vins 2020”

Review

The color is intense cherry red. The nose reveals aromas of jammy red fruits, enhanced by a touch of oak and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is fleshy and has a beautiful texture.

Review

The black cherry color is attractive. Very elegant bouquet, candied fruit, fig, supported by a discreet vanilla wood. Fleshy palate expressing ripe merlot; the promising texture is based on tasty, cocoa and racy tannins.
