The vines are situated in a single 4 hectare bock. The small, 250 cases production is aged in 100% new oak for 33 months. Oak, chocolate, black raspberry jam, flowers and spice aromas open to a rich, thick, long, chocolate, black cherry, jammy plum and bittersweet chocolate finish.

This is wonderful with fabulous blackberries and hints of minerals. Full and intense. Plenty of wood but already integrated.

A big, dense wine (14.5% alcohol) boasting an inky/purple color as well as abundant notes of creosote, charcoal, blueberries and blackberry liqueur, this full-bodied, opulent, intense effort is as concentrated a wine as one is likely to find from Lalande de Pomerol.

This is very ripe but rather "static" on the nose with dark cherries, Dorset plum and blackberry wrapped up in a lot of new oak. The palate is full-bodied with grippy dry tannins, a lot of dry extract here with a severe tannic finish. This is rather hard-going to be honest but hopefully it will become more approachable after bottling.

Fleshy, with well-focused raspberry and linzer torte fruit laced with ample but integrated toasty apple wood and ganache notes. Picks up steam on the finish, with some latent grip. -J.M.

Aged 33 months in new French barriques. Hugely concentrated, chocolate-dipped cherry and blue fruit emerge on the luscious and mouth coating palate. Charcoal, licorice and leather are layered with roasted espresso. Well integrated throughout, this is a show stopper. Drink 2015-2025. Less than 300 cases produced.
