Description

Bordered by Trotanoy and L’Eglise Clinet this almost 9 hectare estate makes some pretty well priced wines that far exceed the price level for quality. The vineyard boasts some vines that are 70 years old and there is pure clay under some of the plot which is the holy grail. The break up of vines is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.

Pomerol – Merlot dominates here ably supported by Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon a distant (and sometimes non-existant) third. There is only 800 hectare of vines and almost 150 producers and Pomerol is the only major appellation of Bordeaux to eschew a ranking system.  The quality at the top level are arguably better than any other Bordeaux but it can vary.

Merlot – It gets a tough time most of the places it is grown. But in Pomerol and Saint-Emilion Merlot not only dominates but makes some of the best wines in the world. Perfume, silky and plush. Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon season the wines with structure and acid but in some places, like Petrus they are almost not needed.

2009 – Having tasted a few vintages of Bordeaux in my time I have no doubt that this will be one of the best in the modern era. I feel that 2010 is on a par for different reasons and 2005 exceeds them both, but it is a small margin.
