Inky black in hue and very black-fruited on the palate, too. This is one of those right bankers I could easily confuse for left, especially as the originally soft structure flexes its muscles a bit more with air.
Tight, rather closed nose. Dark fruit, plum, iron, gently oaky and cool ink hints. A small herbal note. Pure, nice and elegant palate, albeit a bit thin. Tannic with good dark fruit concentration. Cool. Plum and oak. Good Pomerol inkiness. But also some roughness and green herbal notes.
Nose of ripe blackcurrants and dark cherries, some tar, some leather and other animal notes, slightly herbaceous, some spice, and well integrated oak. Palate with ripe red berries including red currants and cranberries, good concentration, good acidity, medium(+) tannins that make themselves somewhat felt but are well embedded in sweet berries, aftertaste with berries and some tannin. Rather young but approachable now, could develop, 90 p.

(Chateau Plince (Pomerol)) A Mouiex wine. Creamy forest fruits hue here. A remarkably full, deep plum character on the nose, immediately very different to the Moueix St Emilions that preceded, with a restrained potter's clay note that just screams Pomerol. There is a savoury, iron-bound structure to the aromas. A creamy substance at the start of the palate, a little more disparate through the middle though. There is a lovely flesh to the fruit here, and all the components are here; appropriate and rather gentle acidity, and a light tannic grip. Composed, gently grippy finish. Harmonious and certainly showing typicity. This is a really good vintage for Plince; aromatic honesty is the number one feature here.
