Winemaker's Notes

The vineyards for this wine are located on the west slope of Pomerol at Cloquet on the edge of the RN 89. The grapes are hand-picked, carefully sorted and de-stalked. Fermentation takes place in open wooden vats. Aging in 100% new French oak barrels.

Critical Acclaim

"Loads of blackberry, chocolate, Indian spices and crushed berries. Full-bodied, with big, juicy tannins and a long, long finish. Best ever from here. Score range: 92-94 –JS "
93 Points

"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, distinctive 2005 can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years. Kudos to proprietor Michel Querre. "

Merlot(mehr-LOW) No second fiddle Merlot is coming back into its own. High popularity led to mass production, which then led to a backlash towards the variety (remember Miles in Sideways?). But passionate Merlot producers, and of course the right bank of Bordeaux, continued to produce quality versions of this grape. Merlot remains the principle grape of top chateaux in St...
