I love how this wine is showing. It's silky, soft, elegant, fresh and loaded with cocoa dusted, cherries, plums, mushroom and flowers. Medium/full bodied, elegant and silky on the palate, this mature Pomerol delivers the goods. 93 Points

I like the wine. I really like this style, with its nose of roses, hints of truffle, smoke, cherries and burning wood. The soft, silky texture really hits the spot. If only the wine were a bit more concentrated, this would be a stunner. At close to 17, this is in the sweet spot. You can age it for a few more years, but it's not necessary. Just pop, pour and enjoy. 92 Points
