Some sappy notes together with the plum and mocha. Surprisingly only medium weight on the palate. A blend of 91% Merlot; 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.

Well located situated between Lafleur and Petrus hence the name. A little bit of history - Pomerol was originally planted by the Romans but fell into disrepair and neglect until the 17th and 18th Century. The total area of Pomerol is only 800 hectares. This wine is plummy and very earthy and so enjoyable. My notes said “This is why one loves Pomerol “.

Huge nose of cedar and black fruit foretold the big-and-richness of this one. Huge mouthfeel, loaded with black currant and sweet woodsy tannins. Very early in its evolution, has some serious improvement to go with cellaring.

This wine is shaping up very nicely. If you have some, wait another 10 years for optimum return.

Big and rich. Solid tannin core with soaring fruit in the palate. Great nose and palate and finish. Lovely and complex. Number 2 wine of the night. A great success.

Lovely floral nose. Very feminine and elegantly structured wine. Should have waited another 4 to 5 years, at which time this will be a smooth, lovely, and interesting wine.
