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 and it still remains one of the best value wines in the appellation. The 2022 is produced from 100% Merlot and is another handsome effort. Opening with suggestions of minty eucalyptus and hedgerow fruits, this segues to an intense palate of blackcurrant and raspberry. Whilst the profile is quite dark and mineral, it is vital and finishes with refreshing acidity and a touch of salinity. A very well measured Pomerol.
