The 2015 is one of the most finessed Pomerols of the vintage. Light on its feet but certainly not lacking in intensity the 2015 possesses gorgeous aromatic lift to match its silky, refined personality. This is going to be a fascinating wine to follow over the next few decades. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 La Violette is the late Catherine Père-Vergé's haut couture Pomerol: pure Merlot destemmed by hand and micro-vinified, then matured in 100% new Saury barrels. Delivering an alcohol at a modest 14.5%, it has a red cherry, kirsch, bergamot and dried orange peel scented bouquet that is defined with a touch of puppy fat; it handles the new oak in stride. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, well-judged acidity, silky smooth in texture, but perhaps not quite delivering that killer blow on the finish. Nevertheless, it is utterly seductive and very well crafted, one to watch when it is bottled. If you want a polished Pomerol, this is probably the place to come, for character and Pomerol typicité, turn to Le Gay. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2040

This is a massive Pomerol with incredible concentration and power yet it holds together beautifully with chocolate, walnut and dark fruit character. Remains vibrant and lively. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

A hedonist style, with a caressing feel to the boysenberry and raspberry fruit flavors that meld into fruit cake and melted licorice notes on the velvety finish. This wine has flair. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Sister property to Ch Le Gay. Now has its own chai. Parcel by parcel and some cold soak. Floral nose. Very sweet start. Very polished - a bit over-sculpted perhaps? Very chewy end. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2032
