Soft, creamy, supple, and plummy, the wine is medium-bodied, elegant and with more sweetness, and flesh than usual. The freshness in the finish gives everything lift. This will be quite nice to enjoy in its youth and over the next 12 -15 years or so. Drink from 2025-2037. 89-91 Pts.

Showing much better in barrel than in bottle, the wine offers loads of ripe, supple textured, red fruits, hints of licorice, and coffee bean. Round, medium-bodied, fresh and fruity, this is already showing quite well and has room for improvement with aging.

Perhaps the best wine ever produced here. Floral in nature, with a juicy, red and black plum with truffle character, soft tannins, and ample freshness in the medium bodied, red berry finish.

Medium bodied, simple, easy going, cherry and red dominated wine, which takes little effort to enjoy. There is not much complexity, but there are no faults found here either.

Light, feminine, medium bodied and focused on the red red berry side side of the style range. There are no real faults here, but it lacks the depth and sensuality of what makes Pomerol great.

This medium bodied, lighter style of Pomerol serves up a healthy dose of bright red cherries and raspberry, with hints of oak and earth. I'd drink this on the young side.
