2008 Plince, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)
Robert Parker says: "A chunky, straightforward, monolithic Pomerol, the 2008 Plince reveals good depth, but not a great deal of character. It reveals a rustic side along with good flesh and pure, plum, black cherry, and berry fruit." Wine Spectator had this to say: "Some good berry and cherry fruit, with medium body and a clean and simple finish." Alex Pross K&L Wine Club Buyer: "Pomerol is considered the "Burgundy" of Bordeaux because the wines come from much smaller domaines than the rest of Bordeaux, cost more on average than other regions in Bordeaux and because of their terroir usually have a high-tone red fruit characteristic with greater acidity than other Bordeauxs. To be able to find a Pomerol under $20 in today's marketplace is quite unusual. ETA: All 2008 Futures are scheduled to arrive between Jan 2011 and Dec 2011.
