Sadly, there's not a whole lot of production to this microscopic estate in Pomerol, but the name says it all. The awesome aromatics include not only raspberries, black cherries, and blackberry, but also the floral perfume of an haute couture house. Its terrific aromatics are followed by a wine with quintessential elegance married to almost unbridled density of fruit, all presented in a flawless and seamless concoction of full-bodied power, elegance and purity. This is a riveting wine and certainly one of the great classics to ever be produced by this tiny estate. Kudos to proprietress Catherine Pere-Verge. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035.

This has blossomed into one of the silkiest, sexiest, wines I’ve tasted in ages. The perfect ripe sweet fruit feels like each berry was hand polished with a velvet cloth. The wine is rich, concentrated, deep, long, complex and utterly hedonistic. Pure bottled hedonism at its best!

Rich aromas and flavors of cassis, dark cherry, cedar and minerals, complemented by sexy oak nuances. Rich but not excessively weighty on the palate, offering an outstanding combination of density and intensity of flavor. Finishes with noble, fine-grained tannins and subtle notes of black pepper and herbs. Less dainty and floral than the 2009, but with greater depth. As with many wines from the late Catherine Péré-Vergé's portfolio, the tannins here have smoothed out considerably since the Primeurs. -- Stephen Tanzer

Quite lush with inviting cherry preserves plum sauce and cassis character. Very silky and refined with perfumy tea and incense notes. Long. -J.M.

Charming floral nose with violet and fragrant wild strawberries. Equally fine on the palate with wonderfully textured fine fruit and silky tannins. Racy and well balanced. So drinkable now but better in 2016.

100% merlot. Near I both Le Pin and Trotanoy the two-hectare section of the vineyard is over 50 years old.

Near I both Le Pin and Trotanoy the two-hectare section of the vineyard is over 50 years old. The soil is a mix of clay and limestone with gravel and the famous crasse de fer deep into the subsoil. Sustainable viticulture is practiced here. Harvested between Oct. 2nd and Oct. 13th. Net yields of just 20 hls/ha. 100% new oak. 13.5% alcohol. Super perfumed and fragrant the nose displays gobs of blue and red berry and an enthralling floral note I couldn't get enough of. Remarkably plush and supple on the palate the fruit is complemented by decadent notes of mocha on the finish. Not quite as structured as its stable mate Le Gay this is still a hedonistic treat to enjoy for 20+ years. Michel Rolland consults.
