With a dark hue the wine is silky, rich, lush and supple. Medium-bodied with an earthy, cocoa-infused, ripe, deep plum character, the long finish is already displaying its chocolate tinged, black cherries, plum, spice, espresso and licorice character. Give it some time to develop additional complexities in the cellar before pulling the cork. 91-93 Pts

Much better from bottle than it showed in barrel, (Which is always a good thing) the wine is deeply colored with truffle, chocolate, black plums and dark cherries, The wine is round, juicy and silky with plush deep red fruits in the finish. This could be the finest vintage ever produced here.

Medium bodied, bright, forward and eager to show its spicy, earthy, red berry-filled slice of Pomerol, this wine should drink well close to its release.

Austere, old school style of Pomerol is rough in texture and lacking in ripenes, fruit and charm. There is some red fruit, and hints of spice and earth, but the style of the wine did not thrill me.
