Offers a very solid plump core of blackberry and crushed cherry notes with sweet spice filling in on the finish where a lightly singed wood edge shows through and should integrate with further élevage. Still rather youthfully primal but good material.-J.M.

Another brilliant wine from Christian Moueix, the 2011 La Providence exhibits copious aromas of black raspberries, forest floor and a hint of spring flowers in its full-bodied, surprisingly rich, dense, creamy-textured personality. Long and opulent, this impressive Pomerol is a great success in this vintage. Consume it over the next 15+ years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Bright dense and suave with plenty of rich deep fruit and lovely floral persistence. Finishes with smooth tannins and compelling sweetness. A very successful Pomerol in 2011.

Orange peel with dark berries and chocolate undertones on the nose. Full body with super integrated tannins and a pretty fruit finish. A balanced and refined wine. Polished character.

Tasted at JP Moueix the Providence 2011 has a precocious bouquet with dark cherries crème de cassis and a touch of fig and apricot. Complex and exuberant this is a more modern style of Pomerol but it retains fine delineation and focus. The palate is medium bodied with rounded tannins a sense of sumptuousness and sensuality. Very well balanced its red fruits caress the mouth and linger long. Oh là là! Tasted April 2012.

One of the Moueix family's most recent acquisitions this 10-acre estate is situated in the center of Pomerol on a combination of clay and gravel soils. Medium purple color. At first analysis this is the most `New World' interpretation of the Pomerol appellation. Candied cherry on entry transitions to cherry pie and subtle cinnamon and clove flavors. Licorice and crab apple notes enter on the juicy soft mid-palate with an overlay of earthy minerality. The finish is somewhat closed and slightly bitter though this could very well be resolved when the final blend is bottled. Not at the level of 2009 or 2010. Only 1250 cases produced. Enjoy 2015-2025.
