Great producers make good wines even in tough vintages. Not sure how long lived this will be, but drinking great right now.

Starts off fairly subtle. Nice acid and a bit of fruit. Still a healthy dark color. After some time, it takes on an interesting velvety quality and the fruit and finish broadens out. Really quite good, with plenty of life ahead.

Beautifull bottle of wine. As a classical Pomerol starts off so shy but after 45min-1hr it explodes for rich red fruits, cassis, floral. Palate with med + acidity, med + dustted tanins and very flavorfull

Classic claret. Has all the elements going on. Appreciate the clean acid finish.
