Pomerol, Bordeaux, France.
Young powerful, still a bit raw, but enjoyable nevertheless. While it does taste like a Pomerol it certainly isn’t overtly plummy fruitcakey. The structure is full but tight. It is a very good example of the vintage, with considerable potential for age.
Lovely hessian character on the front palate, warm but not sweet oak. Great finish, tannin and length of flavour.
Quite an exciting modern Bordeaux without being flamboyant.
