Flowers, smoke, charcoal, black cherries, licorice, and black cherries form the nose, and the core of the wine's character on the palate. Forward, creamy, fresh, and uplifted, with a brightness to the red fruits, silky, soft, creamy textures, and cherries infused with licorice in the finish. Drink from 2027-2038. 92-94 Pts.

Flowers, incense, cherries, chocolate and plums resonate in the nose, and on the palate. However, it is on the palate, with its creamy, rich, supple, fresh and silky freshness where the wine really shows best. Drink from 2024-2042. 93-95 Pts.

Espresso, chocolate, licorice, smoke, and black cherry aromas define the perfume, as well as the character. Round, and creamy, with an oaky edge that will hopefully better integrate, the finish is all about its chocolate-espresso edged, polished finish. Drink from 2024-2038.

Deep, dark in color with its purple accents around the edges, the wine is sexy, silky, opulent and concentrated. There is a fabulous depth of flavor, velvet textured tannins and layers of black plum liqueur, chocolate and espresso that make an impression as the wine lingers and expands on your palate. 94-96 Pts

Truffles and chocolate with black cherries, plum, espresso and a hint of coconut on the backend grabs your attention. Opulent, hedonistic, sensuous and richly textured, this is just great now and after 5 years or so in the cellar. If you like hedonistic wines, this is for you.

Plummy with overtones of vanilla, flowers, black raspberries and truffle, the wine is well-dressed, melodious, medium-bodied and serves up a respectable core of ripe, red fruits in the supple textured finish. 92-94 Pts

With a dark hue, the wine readily opens its big personality, which is rich with chocolate-covered cherry, smoke, licorice, earth and coffee bean. Medium bodied, finesse in style, the brushed cotton tannins and fresh, dark plums fill out the finish.

This small production Pomerol is a sexy little beast. The silky, sensuous texture is the perfect back drop for all the ripe, luscious, sweet, plums, chocolate, flowers and earthy flavors that are all over the place here. This is pure hedonism. While it is difficult to find, Pomerol fans should be all over this wine.

A smoky fruit basket of plums and cherries, a bramble of wild roses and a terrestrial sampler of aromatics hurdle right out in front. On the palate, glistening fruits and melted chocolate feel great as they linger. The wine was made from 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

Quite tight at the moment and rather unyielding, clearly there is good concentration of those ripe, juicy, fat, sweet plums and chocolate, but it is going to require at least another 5-7 years to open and flesh out.

A new wine from Pomerol! Chateau Maillet, along Hubert de Bouard as consultant, has created a wine with winning character. On the palate, this wine is all about its juicy, fresh, plum liqueur, black raspberry, floral and truffle personality. The finish is like sinking into a fine feathered, hotel boudoir, quite silky and long with a line of dark chocolate on your pillow. There is no sensation of heat from the 14.5% ABV level. The wine was produced from a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. 93 - 95 Pts
