TASTING NOTES

"Even with considerable youthful characteristics, this stunning, open-knit 2009 is quite approachable. This fabled terroir sandwiched between Pétrus and Lafleur (hence the name) generally produces one of the more elegantly-styled Pomerols, but in 2009 it offers an extra dimension of flavor intensity as well as more texture and concentration. It reveals a super-seductive perfume of mocha, loamy soil, herbs, black cherries and black currants, truffles and licorice, full body and velvety tannins. The overall impression is one of intensity, power, glycerin and richness as well as undeniable elegance and laser-like focus. This 2009 can be drunk now or cellared for another 25-30+ years." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #199

"Densely packed and rather backward, displaying charcoal and apple wood notes in front of the core of dense roasted fig, macerated plum and steeped cherry fruit. The long finish is well-studded with toasted spice and tobacco hints. Terrific underlying grip for the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2030. 4,300 cases made." Wine Spectator

"A wine that is extremely perfumed, with flowers and berries and hints of minerals. Chili. Full-bodied, with ultra-fine tannins. Muscular and powerful. Goes on and on. The finish is wonderful. Needs at least five or six years of bottle age. Try in 2018." JamesSuckling.com

"Bright red-ruby. Reticent nose hints at plum. Fat, sweet and voluminous, with mouthfilling plum and cherry fruit flavors complicated by smoke and underbrush. This seriously concentrated and firmly structured wine is most impressive today on the long, insinuating finish, which offers terrific focus for a 2009 Pomerol." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"Heady and richly satiny textured. Meaty and minerals. Lovely. Dry finish. But so gorgeous on the palate. Lovely stuff at this stage. So fresh after sumptuous black fruit. Relatively open." JancisRobinson.com
