Interesting much more purple and brighter colour than nearly all the other Pomerols this year, though not massively deep (ie just not opaquely black at the centre). Nose restrained but high-toned red fruit. Warm and ripe on the nose, it is texturally cool and classy with glossy fruit smooth on the palate. Slight dry oakiness of aroma. Quite full. Will be lovely - fresh all the way though. Rating: 93 L&S (Apr 2005)

Tasted at the La Conseillante vertical at Chez Bruce. A stupendous performance by the '04 and one of the overlooked gems under Jean-Michel Laporte's tenure, this representing his debut. It has a soft, slightly muffled bouquet with macerated black cherries, soy, raspberry coulis and a touch of bell pepper, improving all the time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a slight bitter edge on the entry, fine acidity but it is not quite in synch with the rest of the wine. Obdurate tannins (mirroring my sentiments from last years), rendering this a rather sultry La Conseillante but with a lascivious bittersweet finish and razor-like precision. Lovely. Tasted December 2010. Rating: 93-93 Neal Martin, (Dec 2010)
