Pomerol, cru exceptionnel
Offered in a six-bottle original wooden case
Tasting note: This is the second vintage vinified by Olivier Berrouet since taking over from his father. The harvest started a bit later than usual. The challenge was to find the right balance between the fruit, tannins and acidity. Olivier surely has succeeded.
Very soft pure focused nose of great refinement and depth. On the first taste the 2009 Petrus fills your mouth with wonderful pure cherry fruit aroma’s, followed by hints of tobacco and cacao. The well balanced after taste is amazing in length, this wine just keeps on singing. Great balance.
Like the 1990 with a bit more structure. April 2010. EV
