Critic Notes

Gorgeous aromas of blackberries, spices and lightly toasted oak. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a lovely long finish. The silky texture is beautiful. This is much better than from barrel. Beautiful now. Best after 2008. 3,165 cases made. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2004

Score: 91-/100Wine Spectator

Aromas of licorice, damp earth, tree bark, mushrooms, soil, cherries, plums, and currants emerge from this dark ruby-colored 2001. Medium-bodied and elegant, with moderate tannin in the finish, it lacks concentration, but should provide pleasure between 2005-2015. Jun 2004, 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 ...
