Tasting Notes

  • RP2

    Robert Parker, April 2008,
    Score: 89

    This plump, fleshy, seductive, 100% Merlot cuvee from Christian Moueix exhibits herbal, sweet plum, cherry, and mocha notes along with supple tannin and decent acidity, but little depth and richness. It is a charming, sensual Pomerol to enjoy over the next decade. Drink: 2008 - 2018.

  • RP1

    Robert Parker, April 2007,
    Score: 87-89

    This 100% Merlot cuvee from Christian Moueix exhibits spicy, peppery, herbal notes, medium weight, supple tannin, and plush, black cherry and currant aromas as well as flavors. It should drink nicely for 10-12 years. Drink: 2007 - 2019.

  • RP

    Robert Parker, April 2006,
    Score: 88-90

    One of the most seductive Pomerols for drinking during its first 10-12 years of life, this 100% Merlot offers copious quantities of sweet black cherries intermixed with licorice, smoke, and earth. Round, velvety-textured, rich, pure, and captivating, it is one of the few 2005s that will be drinkable upon release. It should keep for a decade or more. Drink: 2006 - 2016.

Region

Pomerol

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
