Tasting Note:

Pensees always comes from a 0.5 hectare seam that cuts a diagonal strip across the vineyard. There is a clear dip here, which exposes a more normal Pomerol terroir without the top layer of gravel. Produced from 54% Merlot and 46% Cabernet Franc. For Baptiste, 2015 was the year when Merlots really shone. He can never remember this varietal performing so well. That is not to say the Cabernets are not wonderful too, but the Merlots add a sumptuous quality to the fruit, which is really quite enticing. The bouquet is utterly engaging, boasting a fine loganberry liqueur character, delicate spice, interspersed with floral red berry fruit. Lithe and very seductive; there are multiple layers of salty, mineral infused fruit wrapped in bone china tannins. This has real tension and poise and was hard to spit!
