This is the first superstar wine Christian Moueix has produced from this vineyard beautifully situated on the plateau of Pomerol. Made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc it was harvested in October (as were most top Pomerols) and reveals a powerful rich massive style that is atypical for a Moueix offering. It boasts an inky/purple color as well as an extraordinary perfume of black cherries black currants blackberries licorice and even a hint of truffles. Deep full-bodied and powerful with high tannins huge depth and a seamless integration of its component parts this appears to be an utterly profound wine that should age effortlessly for 20-30 years.

Blackberry and currant flavors are coddled by toast and chocolate in this plush rich red which is generous on the palate yet has plenty of well-integrated tannins for support. Spice cocoa and ganache accents add interest to the long clean finish. Drink now through 2018. -T.M.
