Tasting Notes

    Score: 91-93

    72% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon A deep and striking Pomerol, with a mass of rich Black Forest gâteau fruits, hints of mocha and vanilla pod. A lovely mix between juicy rich succulent Pomerol Merlot and a bite of fresh zing from the Cabernet Franc, which was so successful in 2020. Silky in style and enormously pleasurable

    Score: 90-92

    Licorice, flowers, wet earth and ripe red fruits show a vibrancy and freshness. The soft, silky tannins give the ripe berries texture, length and definition. The savory finish combines sweet red berries with touches of olives and herbs.

    Score: 17+

    This is quite a powerful and structured Plince with a monotonal blackberry theme that certainly keeps to its path across the palate. The oak is dry but not out of place and the tannins are balanced, so while this is not a complex wine it will certainly open nicely over time and provide hearty, no-nonsense drinking.

Producer

Château Plince

Owned by the Moreau family, and supervised by famous Pomerol winegrowers, J.P.Moueix (owners of Château Petrus), Château Plince at 8.3 hectares is planted with 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Fifteen months are spent ageing the wine, in one third new oak barriques producing a wine that is rich and structured.

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.
