  • Leiden Dinner May 2016: Lovely mature Pomerol. Sweet fruit, integrated tannins, still some acidity in the background. At first a bit dusty and earthy tones, these dissapeared with time in the glass.

  • Cork in excellent conditon and it smelled like blackberry jam.
    Colour is old wine' s, but definitely not as much as one would expected.
    Probably, one would not promptly classify it as Bordeaux.
    it displays no cabernet (lead, citron, tobacco), but no merlot either character.
    It has become something on its own, I do not really think it has prominent Pomérol traits. But it has a balance, and remains quite full-bodied for a 25-year wine, structure and lenght are if a most classic style.
    Another funny thing is that one can perceive very old-wine flavour (as old Chiantis) besides it's power and flesh.
    This wine is probably not as sensual as one one would expect a Pomérol would be, maybe it does not even follow the 1989 vintage character. But it is nevertheless a good wine, it is deep and racy.

  • Bouteille en bonne condition, le bouchon s'est toutefois brisé en deux. Décanté et bu sur 3 heures. Couleur très orangée. Nez de fauve et bouche s'orientant vers le Porto. Bouteille plus évoluée que la précédente.

  • Niveau into the neck. Extérieur du bouchon collé au goulot et intérieur très friable. Difficile à extraire et passage en carafe obligatoire pour filtrer le vin. Belle couleur grenat moyen, assez brillante. Au nez, arômes tertiaires et crasse de fer, typique de Pomerol. En bouche, assez peu expressif et fin, presque fluide. Court. Après 90 minutes, il s'agit d'un autre vin! Le nez demeure mais s'intensifie, avec des nuances de cuir marquées. La bouche s'affermit, gagne en vigueur avec de beaux tanins. La finale est très longue et bonne. Lors d'une dégustation précédente de ce vin je ne lui avais pas donné assez de temps... Il est vrai que les pomerols sont de grande garde!

    (Chateau La Grave Trigant de Boisset Pomerol) Mineral tinged fruit, smoky and toasty oak on the nose, with even some spicy fruitcake notes. Delicious black cherry fruit on he palate, with a firm underlying structure. Lovely ripe, very slightly hard tannins, and soft acidity. This is delicious, full, sweet and rounded.
