An attractive, supple, dark plum/garnet/purple-tinged Pomerol, the 2008 exhibits notes of licorice, olives, mocha and jammy black and red fruits. It is an elegant, medium-bodied, silky red to consume over the next 6-8 years.
While this estate's wines never seem to be as good as one hopes (I have still have memories of the 1982 dancing across my palate), the 2008 has turned out reasonably well. It possesses sweet herb and coffee-infused black cherry, caramel, and cola-like fruit, medium body, a supple texture, and a very good finish. Enjoy this consumer-friendly Pomerol over the next 10-12 years
