Pristine bottle, not decanted. Ripe fruit of cherries and plums, earth and spice, airy fragrance; medium weight on the palate, creamy and moreish, finely grained tannins, lovely balance, juicy acidity, liquorice; good length. This charming wine from light, sandy soils, makes the most of the ripe vintage of 2000. Drink up.
Everyday Bordeaux at it's best. Real joy to drink. Easy going and fun.
As I had a little too much of it in my cellar I decided to use this as red wine to pimp the birthday party of my son (just for the parents of course). Everyone loved it - even those not really enjoying Bordeaux wine usually.
Sombre colour, good saturation, very narrow rim, looks younger than its age; nose starts out discreet with notes of earth, spice and truffle, opens up nicely to ripe crushed fruit and a hint of milk chocolate; on the palate it is a classic, mature, medium-weight Pomerol from sandy soils, well-balanced, with sufficient tannic grip; good length. Just about what you would expect from Plince in a good vintage like 2000. At peak, drinking well, no hurry but it will not improve.
