I thought it was outstanding but this wine is one of the superstars of the vintage. An extraordinarily provocative exotic nose of a florist shop intermixed with raspberry and blueberry liqueur soars from the glass of this very aromatic/fragrant wine. Dense purple in color with silky tannins a full-bodied mouthfeel great nobility and palate penetration this is a sensational compelling Pomerol to drink over the next 20-25 years.

A wine with delicate yet ripe fruit character such as blueberries and vanilla. Full and very silky with fine tannins and a delicious finish. Best in 2015.

Fully integrated on the palate with sweet fruit perfect acids and a depth of flavor that keeps going and going. The long finish has some gravelly tannins but they are unobtrusive.
