Just across the road from Chateau Petrus and a stone’s throw from Le Pin, it’s small wonder this Estate is garnering such critical acclaim. For a taste of near perfect Pomerol at a much more drinkable price, this intense, plush beauty is hard to beat. Aromas of dark plums and truffles carry through on a palate of impeccable texture with velvety tannins. This is a find worth the buzz – jump on it now and crack it for Christmas in 2025.

A deeply intense and plush Pomerol with immaculately ripe fruit and tannins. So well executed with aromas of truffle, dark stones, coal smoke and intense dark plums and cocoa powder. The palate has an immaculate texture with very bright, velvety tannins, carrying rich dark plums. Plum pudding and Christmas cake to close.
