Good medium, bright red. Restrained aromas of medicinal cherry, leather and licorice. Sweet and fairly deep, with brooding, slightly coarse flavors of dark raspberry and blueberry. Finishes with dusty, broad tannins and a slight greenness.

Known as Ch Bourgneuf-Vayron on the French market. Bright, healthy crimson. Alluring spice and intrigue with lovely smooth texture yet life and lift on the finish. Lots of vivacity and life and punch. Good savoury finish, Very neat. Unusually appetising for a Pomerol, suggesting long life and persistence. Beautifully crafted. Manages to be both very ripe and delicate in texture. Total flattery without resorting to simple sweetness or oak.
