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 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc. This is a real mini-Lafleur - it really is such an aristocratic and finely textured wine. Initially floral with a glorious Cabernet character, cloves, tayberry, Goji and delicate minerals. The fruit is very fluid and has wonderful cohesion; vivid, savoury and red fruited. What a sleek and sophisticated Pensees that grows in stature and develops in the glass - we're sure there is much more to come. Bravo!
