Critic Notes

Aromas of flowers and blackberry, and hints of fresh cèpe. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Layered and refined. Still needs time. Getting better as it evolves.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008.James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2007

Score: 92-/100Wine Spectator

One of the strongest efforts from this property (previously called La Grave-Trigant-de-Boisset) over recent years, this lovely, charming 1995 reveals a deep ruby color, and plenty of sweet cherry fruit intertwined with high quality, spicy new oak. Medium-bodied, with excellent concentration and a nicely layered, sexy personality, this is a textbook mid-weight Pomerol for drinking over the next 10-12 years. Feb 1998, www.robertparker.com

Score: 88-/100Robert Parker

Pomerol: A Tale of Two Vintages
We report from a visit by Pomerol Séduction, an organisation promoting eight top wines from the iconic Right Bank appellation in Bordeaux. On the tasting table were Bordeaux 2012s and 2015s - two very different vintages that both have stories to tell. As the scramble for this year’s En Primeur offerings from Bordeaux reached its climax last week, the FINE+RARE Team saw ...

A Pomerol Evening with Neal Martin
On Wednesday night we were privileged to have the company of Neal Martin at a small dinner in the private room of the brilliant Chez Bruce. The theme was, of course, Pomerol and Neal’s recently published book on the region. Wine and food first. The aim of the wine selection was to be eclectic rather than simply aiming for the ...
