just popped and poured, lovely nose just from the start, sweet vanilla, little plums, on the palate for me a fully matured bottle, nicely balanced, very smooth and creamy, peppery, some plums, midweigth body, long finish, a nice Pomerol on top now, should be drunk up from now and the next few years, 86-88?
A very nice and decent Pomerol. Have also enjoyed the 1998 Lafleur-Gazin, which stands out as the better one. This 2000 is drinking well now and I dont see much need for further cellaring. Smooth and balanced but a bit simple. Does not require much decanting and opened up in 30 minutes. Enjoyed with roasted lemon/mint chicken and roasted potatoes.
