An intense yet delicate effort this Pomerol property had a tiny production in 2008 and the levels of concentration and polyphenols are as high as or surpass those in 2005 2001 2000 and 1998 the most recent top vintages of Clos l-Eglise. The dense purple-colored 2008 reveals a sweet perfume of blue and black fruits licorice truffles graphite and forest floor. With superb concentration beautiful intensity an unevolved backward style (no doubt due to the late harvest and late malolactics) and high but sweet well-integrated tannins this full-bodied admirably concentrated 2008 should be at its peak between 2013-2028.

The palate is medium-bodied with a supple entry. There is a fine bead of acidity here, rounded with clean dark cherry and cassis fruit. Although this is a little linear at the moment, it should blossom into a seriously fine Pomerol.

This boasts a modern profile with notes of mocha and roasted apple wood fronting for dark plum sauce Christmas pudding anise and fig bread. The fleshy toast-driven finish has plenty of weight and should stretch out with mid-term cellaring. Drink now through 2019.-J.M.

Concentrated, chewy and saline, with the exotic spice and mocha notes carrying through in the mouth. Lively acidity gives this wine an attractively juicy quality. Finishes very long, with substantial dusty tannins.

Yummy wine. Very pretty aromas of milk chocolate, berry and blue berry follow through to a full body, with soft and silky tannins and a medium finish. Need at least three to four years of bottle age to soften.
