100% Merlot. Complex nose with aromas of dark fruit, chocolate, leather, green pepper and a hint of mint. Lots of red fruit on the palate, smooth, silky tannins. Good acidity — 4 days ago
This is getting better each year. Great blend of merlot and cab franc, it has black berries, cherries, violettes and crushed roses, in a medium bodied and very balanced wrap. No excess maturity nor excess alcohol, all done to perfection. Still requires a few years, maybe 3 to 4, but hard to resist now. Top notch stuff and goes for such low prices if you can find them. 2018 is now called Les Perrières de Lafleur and goes for 99 bucks. Plays in the big league !!! — 4 days ago
Wow this is great! The nose is made of meat juice, cedar, tobacco leaves, oak and vanilla, black currant and an earthy thing which is typical for pomerol in my mind. The palate is well designed with a massive acid backbone, a bright red and black berries note all along, a good width, a velvety mouthfeel. In the rear tannins kick in adding a dry layer which is stylish and elegant, and that carries on on the finish with black currant, some oaky notes too, a reminiscence of the meat juice notes that could be felt on the nose and a tiny bit of bitterness. This is a great effort, what a wine in this vintage! Served along a massive ribeye steak that had matured for 42 days... A pairing made in heaven — 7 days ago
Beautiful. Just ripe blackberries, small red berries, savory dried herbs. Then leather and a lot of minerality. The palate is so fresh, high acid and fine tannins that still have more grip then you expect from 9 years — 2 days ago
While the nose is deep and brooding with plum, blackberry, pine cone, worn leather, and dried herbs, not dissimilar to the 04 and 05 vintages, this 06 shows the juiciest and freshest palate. Grainy but gripping tannins that will take another 3-5 years to resolve.

Blend of 60% Cab Sauvignon, 35% Merlot & 5% Cab Franc, 33% new oak aged, owned by the same family as Cos Labory. Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe black fruits, spice and cedar. On the palate juicy blackberry and plum with notes of cacao and cedar. Fine tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit, cedar and earthy notes. Good value. — 14 days ago
