Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2013
Beautiful aromas of crushed berry chocolate and licorice with hints of toasty oak follow through to a full-bodied palate with velvety tannins and a rich wonderful finish. This is generous and balanced. Best after 2017...

Christian Moueix's new Pomerol baby the 2005 La Providence reveals a saturated dark ruby color beautiful aromas of damp earth subtle smoke herb-infused black cherries and raspberries and a sandy loamy soil character... Christian Moueix's new Pomerol baby the 2005 La Providence reveals a saturated dark ruby color beautiful aromas of damp earth subtle smoke herb-infused black cherries and raspberries and a sandy loamy soil character. Deep powerful tannins complement the wine's wealth of fruit and broad mouthfeel. Kudos to Moueix for taking a relatively obscure estate with a top-notch terroir to new heights of quality. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025.

The first vintage by Christian Moueix from a parcel of vines right in the heart of Pomerol. It is ripe and soft, perhaps too soft. The stone fruit, herbs and full bodied character all are well integrated. But for a wine... The first vintage by Christian Moueix from a parcel of vines right in the heart of Pomerol. It is ripe and soft, perhaps too soft. The stone fruit, herbs and full bodied character all are well integrated. But for a wine of this potential, more structure is needed.

A tart, wild fruit character emerges as the youthful reduction of this wine subsides. It goes from feral scents to an earthy fatness of fruit and a powerful mineral cut to the tannins. To cellar for a decade or longer.
