Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2011
hows stunning depth and drive, with a deep well of blackberry and plum sauce and a lush structure. Superlong, with spice and anise echoing on. A tremendous young wine in the making. Tasted non-blind. -J.M.

Gorgeous aromas. Tar, dark fruits and forest leaves on the nose. Full body, with lovely velvety tannins and a long aftertaste of dark chocolate, dark fruits and cappuccino.

While I long for a return to the fabulous Certan de Mays of the early and mid-eighties, the 2010 is an impressive effort. Aromas of black fruits intermixed with an iron-like character, soil, oak and earth undertones emerge from this full-bodied, masculine, borderline rustic wine. With abundant concentration as well as elevated tannins, this Pomerol will require patience. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030+.

Tuffles, flowers, blackberry and plum aromas meld with supple textures and round tannins that end in a soft, chocolate, black cherry finish.

Dark purplish crimson. Heady, sweet, purple berries on the nose. The finish is dry but this is the closest that the Moueix Pomerols come to lusciousness and any obvious oak influence.

The finish is dry but this is the closest that the Moueix Pomerols come to lusciousness and any obvious oak influence. A little bit sweet and oaky at the moment with a bit of stringiness on the finish.

This shows exotic fruit flavors up front along with viscous and textural elements. Not overdone in ripeness, the palate gains elegance and subtlety on the back with finely textured, firm tannins and a fruit finish that... This shows exotic fruit flavors up front along with viscous and textural elements. Not overdone in ripeness, the palate gains elegance and subtlety on the back with finely textured, firm tannins and a fruit finish that fades gently towards an ethereal presence. Will peak around 2021-25.
