This combines serious fruit and grip with a torrent of blackberry, raspberry and boysenberry pâte de fruit notes, liberally laced with smoldering charcoal and tobacco accents. The long, loamy edge drives the finish, along with hints of bay and warm stones, while the fruit pours through. A very serious effort for the vintage. Best from 2018 through 2032. From France. — J.M.

A spectacular Pomerol that is dense ruby/purple with notes of beef blood, crème de cassis, black cherry liqueur, licorice, iron, and perhaps a touch of truffle. Full-bodied, opulent and clearly a blockbuster of 2012, this profound wine offers serious competition for Petrus and several other limited-production, high-quality Pomerols. This is a stunner from the Moueix firm and should age well for 20-25 years. The final blend was 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, with only 2,000 cases produced. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Today, the 2012 is showing just the barest hint of its potential, but it is impressive, even at this embryonic stage. Ample and broad on the palate, the 2012 possesses remarkable depth to match its explosive energy and vertical structure. Dark stone fruits, spices, new leather and dried flowers unfurl gradually in the glass. The 2012 is a wine to buy and treasure for the next few decades. It will be some time before the tannins start to soften, so readers will have to be patient. This is a truly spectacular wine in every way.

Dense and complex, this powerful wine has impressive tannins and a solid structure. It does hold plenty of fruit, although at this stage you need to search for it.

It does hold plenty of fruit, although at this stage you need to search for it. The character now is dark, dense and remote. It needs many years to bring out the rich black fruits and fresher acidity. Drink from 2024.

A red with dried strawberries, chocolate and hints of dried tomatoes. Full body, dense palate and a velvety tannin texture. Surprisingly rich and ripe for the vintage. Better in 2017.
