Tasting Note:

This Jean-Pierre Moueix estate is well situated between Gazin and the original plot of La Fleur Petrus. The 8.75 hectare vineyard on clay, loess and gravel soils is planted with 98% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. It used to be a somewhat rustic style; however Edouard and Christian have transformed the wine here into a real beauty. Bright morello cherry and a hint of sloe leap from the glass. The palate is brimming with slightly wild fruit: loganberries, spiced plums and blackcurrant. This is intense, charming and finishes with sumptuous, pure fruited tannins. This will be a good value 2015 from Pomerol.
