Tasting Note:

This Jean-Pierre Moueix estate is well situated between Gazin and the original plot of La Fleur Petrus. The 8.5 hectare vineyard on clay, silt and gravel soils is planted with 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. It used to be a somewhat rustic style; however, Edouard and Christian have transformed the wine here into a real beauty. The last few vintages have been real successes and 2018 continues that trend. For the money, we doubt you'll find much better in Pomerol. The 2018 is produced from 100% Merlot and is a rather handsome, understated style of Pomerol. Pure and quite intense red berry fruit, notes of tayberry interwoven with chalky minerality and kirsch. This is bright and charming with a lovely saline finish.
