|PARKER - Avril 2008||
As I have written many times before, this is one of the most exotic, flamboyant Pomerols produced. It comes close to that of Le Pin... at one-twentieth the price. A complex bouquet of roasted coffee, caramelized black cherries and blackberries, incense, dried mushrooms, and licorice is followed by a succulent, opulent, voluptuous wine. This stunningly flamboyant, distincive 2005 can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years. Kudos to proprietor Michel Querre.
