    VINTAGE 2009

    TASTING NOTES

    The result of an already legendary vintage year, this intensely garnet-hued wine with deep purple tints commands the senses with its rich bouquet covering a whole spectrum of fruit (cassis, cherry) and just a hint of toastiness. The highly elegant palate bespeaks perfectly ripened grapes and offers smooth, creamy extract over velvety tannin. A very great wine without a doubt among the wines of this Médoc village appellation.

    Drinks well even when young but will stand cellaring for a couple of years.

    VINTAGE 2010

    TASTING NOTES

    The fruit of a classic Bordeaux vintage, Pomeys 2010 is an intense, brilliant crimson in colour with a nose displaying frank aromas of black-berried fruits and spices. The vanilla and roasted notes bear witness to masterful ageing in oak. Remarkable structure and length underpinned by fine, velvety tannins. Wine aficionados will rightly recognise this as the product of a great terroir.
