Merlot grapes overwhelmingly make up the generous heart of this wine in 2015, with just 2% Cabernet Franc bringing vivacity and complexity to the Merlots’ velvety, dense fruitiness. Average age of the vines is around 35 years. In the cellar, a fifth to a quarter of the barrels are renewed each year. Like many Pomerol châteaux, this is a small property with just 21 acres under vines. In colour the 2015 is rich, purple garnet, with very fragrant, red and black fruit aromas. The palate combines intriguing freshness with beautifully balanced, dense fruitiness, smooth texture, and gentle, mouth-coating tannins (for drinking 2019-2028+).
