2009 Le Clos de Beau Père 87-89
Tasted at Ets. Thunevin. This has a very rich, opulent nose of macerated black cherries, kirsch, blueberry and a touch of damson jam. The palate is full-bodied, very toasty with a lot of new oak, rich black fruit with a savoury twist, showing good definition towards the finish. To be honest, this more hedonistic style of Pomerol is not to my taste, but there is a craftsmanship and purity that should bode well for the future, and who appreciate this style of wine more than myself. Tasted April 2010.
