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. - – JS

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2012
(99+) 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... (99+) 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.

Wonderful aromas of crushed blackberries and blueberries and spices. Rose petals. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy, fruity finish. Beautiful layers of tannins, with hints of acidity. Best after 2017.

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.

(17.5/20) Much paler than the Clinet. Very evolved and complex. Almost cheekily fresh and rhubarb. SO different! Crisp! Probably picked weeks earlier than Clinet next door. Racy but very different from the 2009 norm... (17.5/20) Much paler than the Clinet. Very evolved and complex. Almost cheekily fresh and rhubarb. SO different! Crisp! Probably picked weeks earlier than Clinet next door. Racy but very different from the 2009 norm. Racy. I probably wouldn't guess 2009 blind.
