The aromas of sweet tobacco and ripe fruit are so attractive. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a juicy, fruity finish. Long finish. A pretty and delicious wine already. Best in 2015. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

A firm and tight red, with berry, mineral and light cappuccino aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins that turn soft. Delicate finish. A little shy

(Ex Trigant de Boisset.) Transparent crimson. Gamey/ veggy notes. Sweet start and some delicacy ? very different from most Pomerols! Really quite racy and sinewy. Dry finish. Very very much a food wine!

Tasted at JP Moueix. This has a more expressive, loose-knit nose than other Pomerol 2009, but then again, this is usually one of the most accessible Pomerol wines. Blackberry, briary and a touch of autumn leaf. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, a slight tinny edge on the entry, tensile and taut, sharp blackberry and briary towards the finish that just lacks a little weight at the moment. Tasted April 2010.

Supple, round and pleasing. Plenty of juicy fruit and freshness. Delicate tannic frame. Comfortable wine for early to mid-term drinking. Part of the Moueix stable. Drink 2014-2022
This 2009 is a seductive, fruit-driven style of Pomerol, with loads of sandy, loamy soil notes intermixed with underbrush, black cherries, plum and mocha. Medium-bodied, with low acidity, in a style not dissimilar from the 1982, this is a wine to drink now and over the next 10-12 years. Wine Advocate.February, 2012
