Owned by the Gasparoux family, who also own the more well-known Chateau Ferrand. Not a second wine but, since 1970, a separate property assembled from various parcels situated around the church of Pomerol. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Well-priced, traditionally-styled Pomerol. No garagiste excesses of overripe fruit or new oak here. Ripe red fruits of red currant and plum followed by lovely, savory notes of cedar and truffle. Wonderful weight – rich, round, and mouthfilling. Elegant and refined with great presence. The perfect pairing for grilled duck breast. Already showing the strength of this 2000 vintage, this wine will continue to improve for many years to come. Drink or hold.
