TASTING NOTES

Dark crimson. Floral and complex bouquet that's not as dense as Hosanna's. The personality is not as clear. I wonder how many parcels went into this wine? Solid but not thrilling performance. Very dry end.

So much to this and it shows the magic of Pomerol. Full-bodied, layered and tannic with all the energy and focus of a great vintage from this estate. Superb.
