Tasting Note:

Unusually for Pomerol, where humility and understatement are the norm, this new property possesses a sizeable château that, in very little time, will become a landmark of the plâteau, standing as it does opposite the mairie and surrounded by great names such as Hosanna, Certan de May and Lafleur. Christian Moueix, who spotted the potential of this plot some years ago, finally gained full control of the property last year and has produced 1,000 cases of Merlot-based pure elegance in 2005. There are wonderful purple flowers on the nose, with a subtle depth and concentration of ripe cherry and chewy tobacco leaf; just the slightest hint of oak; very pretty fruit on the palate, fresh and pure with savoury, silky tannins and a mouth-filling texture. Medium weight, very fresh acidity, and an excellent growth of flavour through the palate. A sensational début.
