This limited production wine is made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc from the very finest part of the vineyard on the plateau of Pomerol which used to be known as Certan-Giraud. It often reminds me of Cheval Blanc at least from an aromatic perspective but in 2006 the wine seems to verge in the direction of the more exotic flamboyant style of Le Pin. Dense plum/ruby to the rim with a sweet nose of roasted coffee caramel mocha and lavish quantities of black cherry and black currant fruit this wine has a lush sensual texture full-bodied depth and stunning length and purity. This is a beauty to drink now and over the next 12-15 years.

Compelling aromas of red cherry and raspberry liqueur licorice minerals spices mocha and coffee. Wonderfully opulent and broad with full but not excessive ripeness and a classically dry impression for such a plush wine. A wonderfully sexy quintessential Pomerol that finishes with terrific breadth sweet tannins and an almost magically light touch. If this is not as good as the 2005 it's just a step behind.

Black chocolate and berry character on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied with fine tannins and a clean caressing finish. Best after 2012. 1300 cases made. -JS
