A rich, saturated colour, the 2020 Belle-Brise has a concentrated nose packed with a mixture of red and dark berries. It opens with notes of raspberry and white flowers, evolving with air to offer hints of riper dark cherries. On the palate the wine combines the richness, sweetness and gourmand nature of this estate, with an additional and atypical freshness. This results in an exemplary, balanced Pomerol which retains its traditional, elegant, supple and velvety tannins. This is a brilliant showing in 2020, in the same vein as the ’18 or ’19. It will be fascinating to taste all three of these vintages side by side in a decade’s time.
