Tasting Note:

Opulent and stylish, as are many of the 2005 Pomerols from Jean-Pierre Moueix, this wine is constructed with care over a powerful structure that hints at the power that lies beneath. The fruit is pure, the tannins silky with good mineral intensity, and the whole package is so beautifully wrapped in measured elegance that it will be fascinating to watch the power gradually abate and the fruit develop secondary characters, all arriving in 15 years’ time at a perfect point of sensory equilibrium.
