Château La Violette, Pomerol, 2018

Tasting Note:

As with sister property, Le Gay, this is the fifth vintage of Violette to be micro-vinified in their very impressive new cellar. Produced from a tiny 1.6 hectare plot of Merlot close to VCC and Le Pin, this 100% Merlot cuvee and will be aged for 15 months in 100% new Saury and Ecrin barrels. This boutique cuvee has received some rave reviews. It's fair to say that we can't see what the fuss is all about, although recent Southwold showings have been more impressive. Very glossy with really polished Merlot fruit: plum liqueur, damsons, creamy red fruit and a hint of florality. This is perhaps a little more vibrant than Le Gay and has a mouth-watering vibrant, saline finish.
