Proprietor Denis Durantou has produced a blockbuster Pomerol from a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc tipping the scales at just over 14.5% natural alcohol. A riveting wine pure elegant but at the same time extremely powerful and concentrated with stunning texture opulence and density the tannins are abundant and the wine certainly in need of a decade of cellaring. Fabulous creme de cassis and cherry liqueur notes are intertwined with hints of licorice truffle and graphite. Full and rich but still in an infantile state of development this wine needs to be cellared for 10 years but should keep for five decades or more. This 2009 is absolutely profound. 99+

Evolves to black olive and hints of asphalt. Full-bodied with supersilky tannins and tangy rich fruit. It really grabs hold of you and wants to tell you it¿s special. Loads of ripe tannins too. Big and structured. Turns to tapenade. Score range: 97-100 -JS

Smells like a bouquet of flowers. Full bodied and powerful with velvety tannins. 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. The new 2000? Can't wait to see what ends up in the bottle. Barrel sample. 96+

Essence-of-merlot aromas of bitter cherry blueberry boysenberry dark chocolate licorice and spices lifted by a whiff of violet. Dense thick and sweet with a saline nuance to the seamless flavors of dark berries licorice and spices. Wonderfully sweet subtle and long finishing with substantial building tannins and a medicinal reserve that bodes well for a slow and graceful evolution in bottle. A great vintage for this estate.
