With spicy black raspberries, vanilla and earthy notes, there is a nice concentration of fruit and freshness, but this vintage lacks personality. 90-92 Pts

Earth, tobacco, forest and plum scents open to a structured, tannic, fresh, powerful Pomerol wine that focuses on freshness and purity of fruit. Give it at least 5-7 years before popping a cork.

The reticent aromas need coaxing before showing their earthy, floral, cigar box and plum character. On the palate, the wine is structured to age, finishing with a mouthful of fresh, black cherries.

2009 Providence starts with scents of jammy berries, chocolate, and spice. Full bodied and richly textured, this vintage lacks the excitement, complexity, and length of the 2005. The wine finishes with elegant dark cherry and black raspberry flavors. 93-95 Pts

08 Château Providence was almost opaque. Smelling the wine reminded me of walking into a florist shop and finding chocolate dripped all over the floor, while simultaneously munching on dark, spicy berries to curb your hunger. A sexy, ripe, and lush wine with a seemingly endless, decadent finish.96-98 Pts

Even though this is made from 100% Merlot, there is a firm, stoic quality to the wine. More interesting in the nose, with its truffle, black and red plum, espresso, thyme and cherry nose, than on the still masculine palate, time could help with this wine, but it will always be on the strict side of the style range for Pomerol.

Already showing secondary notes of truffle, black cherry, smoke, espresso, earth and tobacco, the wine is full bodied, with a polish to the tannins, ending with a splash of earthy plum and licorice. This can age and improve for at least another 5-7 years, or more.
