From a parcel of 40-year-old vines in this superb 1er Cru, which borders Musigny, this is better than many Grands Crus. With a lifted and heady nose of rosemary, lavender, crushed raspberry and vanilla, the palate is concentrated, with great balance, texture and length. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
If ever there is a certainty about assured success in Pomerol it is that Alexandre Thienpont will make a show-stopping wine. VCC 2005 is nothing less than a brilliant wine that exudes class from the first hint of perfume to an extraordinarily long finish. Plump and lavishly opulent, Alexandre has coaxed the most ambrosial flavours from perfectly ripened fruit. A benchmark and a monument to Pomerol 2005. A beautiful, sensuous, silky, pomerol that proves that coaxing flavours from fruit reaps finer rewards than a bullying approach. An 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc assemblage. Part of our latest Fine Wine Parcel.
