The 2014 has a beautiful deep colour. It starts out quite powerful on the palate and continues into a beautiful long aftertaste. There are hints of black fruit (blackberry and blackcurrant) and red fruit (cherries), and already such nuances as forest floor, incese, and cedar. The warm (balsamic) overtones confirm the ripeness in 2014. The wine needs a few more years, about 8, to reach its peak. It will then display all the rare complexity of the finest Pomerols, with truffle, leathery, and meaty aroms. Its structure should enable it to 'hold' for the next 15 years. i.e until 2030.
95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc
