(100% merlot). Ruby-red. Captivating, dense nose offers very pure aromas of violet, ripe raspberry, black cherry, plum and minerals. Incredibly rich and exotic on the palate, with a compellingly pure black cherry flavor complicated by notes of sweet licorice, cinnamon and minerals. Finishes sweet, broad and extremely long, and though slightly more tannic than usual, the tannins are very smooth and polished. This is the only property in Pomerol on mainly gravelly soil that did as well as those situated on more clay-rich ground, which tended to make the best wines in Pomerol in '08.
