(WS92-95 points) Blackberry and licorice, with spices. Tar. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a round and beautiful finish. So silky and beautiful. Lovely texture. - JS

Dominated by Merlot (95%) blended with a small amount of Cabernet Franc (5%) with 14.5% natural alcohol it exhibits an opaque blue/purple color as well as a bouquet reminiscent of blueberry pie intermixed with espresso beans black raspberries charcoal and graphite. Full-bodied thick and juicy with undeniable purity a layered mouthfeel and abundant but sweet tannins this exceptional Pomerol should be ready for prime time drinking in 5-8 years and last for at least three decades. Unfortunately there are just over 1300 cases produced. This estate has been coming on strong over the last decade and the 2009 is their finest effort to date.

Good bright red-ruby. Wild meaty aromas of black raspberry roast coffee minerals toffee and smoky oak; very Pomerol. Pliant and sweet with superb depth and an utterly seamless texture to the flavors of black raspberry... Good bright red-ruby. Wild meaty aromas of black raspberry roast coffee minerals toffee and smoky oak; very Pomerol. Pliant and sweet with superb depth and an utterly seamless texture to the flavors of black raspberry mocha and roast coffee. As plush as this Pomerol is it easily maintains its shape. Dusty tannins spread out to saturate the palate on the long generous finish. A superb result for this property.

It has a well defined bouquet that blossoms in the glass, quite floral and alluring. The palate is medium-bodied with conversely, quite sturdy tannins that should see it age well. Very good fruit intensity here: this is not a shy Feytit, rather one that really want to make a statement. Long and complex on the finish, great precision and mineralite. Superb.

90% Merlot 10% Cabernet Franc. Situated between Trotanoy and Latour à Pomerol and planted to 34 year old vines. Gravel rich and sandy-gravelly soils. Serious vineyard management including debudding deleafing desuckering... 90% Merlot 10% Cabernet Franc. Situated between Trotanoy and Latour à Pomerol and planted to 34 year old vines. Gravel rich and sandy-gravelly soils. Serious vineyard management including debudding deleafing desuckering crop thinning and manual harvesting techniques are the rule. Total yields for 2009 were 34 hls/ha. The color is super dark inky purple almost black and opaque. A beautiful perfume of black fruits with an underlying loamy soil earthy profile lifts from the glass of this pretty wine. There's power in the densely packed core of black fruits in this wine. It's complex with pretty fruit fresh earth and underlying minerality that makes this wine really compelling.
