Tasting Note:

Restorations at the magnificent 19th century chateau are very nearly complete. One can now look out over the impeccably manicured vineyards of Providence and keep a close eye on the neighbours (Vieux Chateau Certan and Le Pin). There has been an enormous amount of work done in the cellar too. As you would expect from any Moueix venture, everything is state of the art and geared to further increasing quality. The vineyards total roughly 4 hectares on gravel and clay soils. Plantings are 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc which is reflected in the 2008 blend. Gorgeous high toned griotte cherries as well as flowers and minerals. Energetic attack of fresh berries, loganberries and blackberries. Very stylish, suave texture with long and precise, very focussed flavours. This is a very refined Pomerol with gravelly complexity, lacy, glorious tannins. A really delicious, structured, serious Pomerol built for the long term.
