  • What the experts say...

    Le 1985 est délicieusement riche, persistant, ouvert et velouté (...). Assez corsé, il révèle des flots d'arômes de caramel et de petits fuits ; c'est un Pomerol qui vous donne l'impression de croquer une confiserie. Source : Robert Parker (3/90)

    Cuvée presentation

    The wines are aged for 14 months in barrels, 40% of which are renewed each year. On tasting, the wine has a deep ruby colour, and takes a few years to express its full character, developing voluptuous notes of dark fruit (blackberries). Rich and velvety on the palate, it releases a complex, pleasantly spicy array of flavours.
