Nose has syrup-y cherry, wet steel, moist-dried leaves, very over-ripe strawberry, dehydrated strawberry and wet mahogany shavings.
Palate has dried sweet cherry, cane sugar, brown bread, ripe sweet cherry, dried blackberry with faint tannins and acidity.
Tawny ruby color.
Cork pulled for slow oxidation at 5H, in a nice spot at this time.
Clearly the better of our bottles, frankly I'm quite pleased by the palate, brighter than expected, somewhat generous fruit persisting.
Second of two bottles acquired in 2021, this bottle had the higher shoulder fill. Cork was a mess, but one piece extraction with the Durand.
Paired to duck confit with green lentils. 👌
Solid improvement with more air time at 6-7H. — 2 years ago
2020 vintage. Owned by Henri Parent, son of the late Catherine Perré-Vergé. Other Pomerol properties include Le Gay and La Violette. Concentrated rather dark fruit in a powerful ripe tannic structure. The high alcohol (abv. 15,5%) is perfectly integrated. Slightly monolithic at this stage, but very promising. — 24 days ago
