75cl * 14% ABV * Pomerol, Bordeaux
At almost 50 hectares under vine, this is the largest property in Pomerol, but is still under ownership of the Lambert family, who have been custodians of the property for the past five centuries - quite the feat, even in Bordeaux terms. 2010 was regarded as a superb vintage (and outstanding for Pomerol), producing powerful wines balanced by acidity and structured tannins. Chock full of blackcurrant and violets, this really delivers on the appellation and the vintage. Dense and richly concentrated, its fruit balanced by notes of spice and minerality. Drink from 2010.
