It has a refined bouquet with ebullient red cherry and crushed strawberry scents laced with black truffle and sandalwood. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a keen line of acidity, precise with a crescendo of black fruit towards the finish that has great persistence. This has outstanding potential. - Neal Martin

Love the ripe-berry, chocolate and bay-leaf aromas that follow through to a full body, velvety tannins and a fresh finish. Delicious and juicy. Needs time to soften but so good.

This beauty is a terrific success in the vintage and offers more texture, richness and depth than most. Black cherries, currants, smoke, acacia flowers, and damp earth nuances all emerge from this ripe, gamey, layered, medium to full-bodied Pomerol that has character as well as elegance. It’s already drinking nicely, yet will keep for 15-20 years.

Black cherry, plum, menthol, and leather overtones abound in a racy Pomerol endowed with real depth. The 2014 is super-ripe and racy, with all the elements in the right place. Tasted two times. -- Antonio Galloni

From 100% Merlot, the wine is showing a sensuous, velvet character, with earthy plums, truffle and minerality to complicate matters. You can drink this young, while waiting for the gorgeous 2015 and 2016 to come around...   From 100% Merlot, the wine is showing a sensuous, velvet character, with earthy plums, truffle and minerality to complicate matters. You can drink this young, while waiting for the gorgeous 2015 and 2016 to come around. Wine tasting is of course by its nature, completely subjective. Either I did not see the quality of this wine in barrel, or it truly blossomed in bottle. Either way, as you can see, my score has clearly jumped as the is just showing great today!
