Tasting Note:

The Pomerol UGC is a moribund and depressing affair; it's only redeeming feature is we can get in and out pretty quickly… Gazin is really the only reason we still go. Clinet continues to produce wines with lots of extract. The hue would send Johnny Nice Painter heading for the wardrobe of darkness.

It will probably wow some critics, but not us.
