This is an impressively deep, structured and powerful example of Pomerol. Like L’ÉGLISE-CLINET, it is markedly different from many of its supple, rounded, softly structured contemporaries. Owned since 1990 by the Rothschilds, the wine is traditionally vinified and possesses sturdy, dense, firm tannin when young, along with formidably concentrated levels of complex, dark, spicy fruit. There is oak evident here but its very harmoniously integrated. It has been remarkably good in the best years of the last decade or so of the 20th century; 1990 was of legendary quality – super ★★★★★ – and the wines of the first decade of the 21st century, with perhaps the exception of 2003 and 2007 are also very impressive.
