91-93 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012
(90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc; 80% new oak): Opaque purple-tinged ruby. Closed nose hints at fresh blueberry, violet, minerals and spicy cocoa. Juicy, bright and pure; less explosively perfumed and creamy than usual for this wine but more delicate and subtle than recent vintages. Finishes long and lively, with chewy yet polished peppery tannins and lingering notes of dark berries, minerals and flowers. A spicy character emerged as the wine opened in the glass. I imagine that this Pomerol will pick up flesh over the next few years, while remaining beautifully pure.
