The colour is deep and opaque, the disk a brilliant purple. The nose first offers aromas of black fruit, cherry, blackberry, wild blueberry. After swirling there are some floral notes of wallflower and violet. In the mouth, the attack is remarkably well structured with smooth, velvety tannins, then the mid-palate is denser, bringing tension and a flavoursome character. There is real harmony in the appetising, fresh finish. The crisp, refined tannins, the persistent fruity notes and the natural elegance of the balance all come together to make this vintage 2015 a magnificent expression of our great Pomerol terroirs.
