Showing much better from the bottle than it did from the barrel, now you find a perfume packed with espresso, flowers, cherries, chocolate and incense. The palate is even better with its creamy red fruits, sweet, black cherries and dark chocolate mid-palate and finish. Drink from 2025-2038.

Medium-bodied, forward, soft and fruity, with a core of red cherries, strawberry and easy-going tannins. You can enjoy this with pleasure on release.

Drink from 2023-2031. 88-90

Silky, fresh, soft and energetic, the cherries and plums are ripe, sweet and pure. And the earthy chocolate and spice note on the palate adds the perfect nuance that rounds things out in the supple textured finish. 90-92 Pts

Nice depth of color, the toasty oak rounds out the fresh plums, cherry and licorice notes. Supple textures, fruity and juicy with a nice hit of chocolate in the finish, this is a delicious, early drinking Pomerol. 89-91 Pts

This wine is all about the smoky black cherries and vanilla bean aromas. Medium bodied with curvy textured plums, cherries, cocoa and dusty tannins resound in the finish.

It is quite easy to like this medium-bodied, elegant, charming, soft, early drinker, due to all its ripe red plums, silky textures and sweet, fresh cherries. You can drink this on release, or age it for a few years.

Medium bodied, slightly strict, especially for Pomerol, red plum filled wine is ready for prime time drinking with an hour or so of air. This is not a wine I'd age for long term development.

One of the best values in Pomerol today. Produced by Jean Luc Thunevin, the wine serves up fresh, black plum, mocha, earth and espresso. Medium bodied, round and reasonably open. If you like your wines young, you can enjoy this in its youth. Else, this should be better with a few years of bottle age.

Opulent, lush, forward style of Pomerol with perhaps a bit too much oak. But it's hard not to like all the plush, chocolate covered black cherries, fresh plums, earth and smoke. It's a good value for Pomerol, which is hard to find these days.
