The immediate neighbour of the fabled Pétrus and owned by the ancient de Baillencourt dit Courcol family with whom C&B has a profoundly long connection, we love this wine which has been an exclusivity for many, many years. Qualitatively this is a significant step up, less overt, more profound than the previous Pomerols tasted. Dark, subliminally powerful perfume of densely packed red and black fruits, spicy, earthy, clenched. The palate is….calm, measured, drily rich, profound. The fruit is beautifully extracted with big, broad shouldered flavours, chewy and rich but with a burst of compressed freshness on the finish that lifts the weight so well.
"Neighbouring the fabled Pétrus, this wine is an example of the amazing quality this region produces. Packed with red and black fruits, bold and rich this wine is guaranteed to impress winelovers anywhere."
