Tasting Note:

This Jean-Pierre Moueix estate is well situated between Gazin and the original plot of La Fleur Pétrus. The 8.5 hectare vineyard is planted on clay, silt and gravel soils. It used to be a somewhat rustic style; however, Edouard and Christian have made numerous improvements and this has developed into a stylish, good value Pomerol. The vineyard, with its more humid, cooler environment is well suited to dry, warm vintages like 2020. Following on from the wonderful 2019, 2020 is another stellar performance. For the money, we doubt you'll find much better in this luxurious commune. Produced from 100% Merlot (it’s the only grape planted in their vineyards) this offers a glorious bouquet of decadent floral plums and fine minerals. There’s a wonderful silkiness to the fruit: pure, lacey and intense. Although the palate is dense and concentrated, it is fresh, bright and uplifting with ripe, sophisticated tannins.

"A seductive but slightly held back feel, this has an attractive frame and plenty of raspberry, coffee and tobacco grilled fruits and spice. Enjoyable although doesn't totally escape the effects of a dry summer, there is some closing down and tightness of the tannins, balanced out by a burst of fresh mint which lifts the palate on the finish. Enjoyable. Harvest September 14 to 21. Drinking Window 2023 - 2038." 91/100 - Jane Anson, Decanter.com
