2021 Clos de la Vieille Église  (Pomerol) 88
Medium-bodied, bright, floral and plummy, here the wine is a bit over-extracted for the vintage that creates a some chalky dryness in the red fruits on the palate. The wine blends 70% Merlot with 30% Cabernet Franc. Drink from 2023-2034. 87-89

2020 Clos de la Vieille Église  (Pomerol) 90
Deeply colored, the wine opens with black plums and cherries, oak, wet earth, anise and flowers. Medium-bodied, soft, silky and polished, with a nice sweetness to the elegant fruits and freshness in the finish. This will be even better with a few years of aging. 89-91 Pts

2019 Clos de la Vieille Église  (Pomerol) 90
Black raspberries, herbs and spice with touches of espresso, wet earth and spices kick off the perfume. Medium-bodied, fresh, soft, vibrant and elegant, the sweet, ripe, red fruits really come through on the palate and in the finish. This is showing much nicer from the bottle than it did from the barrel. Drink from 2023-2034.

A light touch of oak, soft, silky textures, and ripe, sweet plums with hints of cocoa fill out this wine on the palate. Medium-bodied and forward, give it a few years in the cellar for further development.
