A sensational effort from proprietor Denis Durantou, this 2005 is a compelling wine, but purchasers should wait at least a decade to begin the magical liquid tour. One of the monumental wines of the vintage, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a glorious perfume of caramelized blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries, a hint of toast in the backward, fully integrated oak, full body, and exceptional density and richness. Prodigiously concentrated, this layered, broad Pomerol reveals a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol, and wood. It is a massive, yet remarkably elegant wine that is as singular as it is exhilarating. Robert Parker

Big wine but hard and metallic nose and palate. A very tight wine, unyielding and tannic, with a typically short finish as one expects in younger wines from this producer. Unresolved. One hopes something will develop with time.

An extremely complete wine that while still probably too young to drink shows it has the quality to compete with those at the very top of the Pomerol tree. The aromas keep changing in the glass which is always a sign of complexity , cherry , chocolate, coffee and plum pie are some that I noted . Very suave and velvety on the palate , but lots of ripe sweet tannin too. Many of the aromas present themselves on the palate also, the balance is exceptional . The length goes beyond long, it is almost never ending. A great future ahead undoubtably .
