Even with considerable youthful characteristics this stunning open-knit 2009 is quite approachable. This fabled terroir sandwiched between Petrus and Lafleur (hence the name) generally produces one of the more elegantly-styled Pomerols but in 2009 it offers an extra dimension of flavor intensity as well as more texture and concentration. It reveals a super-seductive perfume of mocha loamy soil herbs black cherries and black currants truffles and licorice full body and velvety tannins. The overall impression is one of intensity power glycerin and richness as well as undeniable elegance and laser-like focus. This 2009 can be drunk now or cellared for another 25-30+ years.

The finish is wonderful. Needs at least five or six years of bottle age. Try in 2018.

Densely packed and rather backward displaying charcoal and apple wood notes in front of the core of dense roasted fig macerated plum and steeped cherry fruit. The long finish is well-studded with toasted spice and tobacco hints. Terrific underlying grip for the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2030. -JM

It is open generous ready to drink. The tannins lead into the purest acidity letting the fruit sing. R.V.

Fat sweet and voluminous with mouthfilling plum and cherry fruit flavors complicated by smoke and underbrush. This seriously concentrated and firmly structured wine is most impressive today on the long insinuating finish which offers terrific focus for a 2009 Pomerol.
