Wonderful aromas of dark fruits meat and coffee follow to a full body with chewy and rich tannins and a long intense finish. This needs until at least 2017 to resolve the chunky tannins. Best ever from here?

Sandy loamy soil notes interwoven with kirsch and Provencal garrigue jump from the glass of this full-bodied opulent rich Pomerol. Abundant fruit on the attack mid-palate and finish characterize this over-achiever. Consume it over the next 15 years. collapse

This rounded wine is dense, with firm tannins that are well molded into its sweet-tasting structure. Packed with ripe fruit, this will age relatively quickly, giving pleasure in 5–6 years. ROGER VOSS

Set across clay soils on the plateau, and sandier gravel soils a little lower down, this is a property that I always enjoy following as they have a careful plot-by-plot approach to viticulture and care enormously about terroir expression. Here they have teased out fleshy but restrained flavours in the grapes. The acidity is just a touch higher than some in the vintage but there are wonderful layers of raspberry and blackberry fruits and soft tobacco flavours. It’s ready to drink but will age further. collapse
