"Interesting combination of berry and green olives on the nose. Full-bodied and silky, with ripe tannins and a long, fruity finish. Big wine. This is a Pomerol that I seldom taste, but it has plenty of stuffing. Drink now through 2010. -JS" (WS)

"This was a great sleeper of the vintage in 2000 from producer Jean-Jacques Janoueix. A 100% Merlot cuvee coming from a nearly 12-acre vineyard situated between Vieux Chateau Certan and Le Pin, the 2000 shocked a number of people at the tasting, only because they had no expectations, and had never had the wine before. It wasn’t a surprise for me. Inky blue/purple-colored, with notes of graphite, blueberry liqueur, smoke, incense, sweet licorice, and hints of chocolate fudge and spicy oak, this full-bodied, opulent, rich wine seems to just be entering its window of full maturity, where it should last for another two decades. Very impressive." (WA)

"Full ruby. Sexy, rather Burgundian aromas of creamy raspberry, cherry, leather and smoky oak. Opulent, thick and sweet; fleshy and impressive. A rather powerful style of Pomerol, finishing with big, ripe tannins and impressive length. A real attention-grabber." (VM)

"Licorice, coffee bean, coconut, black cherry and an intriguing scent of menthol were the first things that caught your attention. On the palate, the wine is full bodied, lush, round and a little oaky, finishing in a flashy display of black cherries. This is showing very nice today. 93 points - Tasted Feb 28, 2013" (JL)
