This wine has me puzzled. Definitely has a bitter taste, however, I found myself pouring it while cooking and even finished the bottle after dinner. Despite some faults there is something yummy - fleshy, sweet, plums, strawberry jam with just the right tartness - creating a nice tension between the two. Tannins are virtually absent. So not a grand wine, not perfect, but lot's of fun to drink.
Plausible, light, easy, sweet fruit, hint of bay leaf. Lacks structure and weight even though nice enough as a drink. For a Pomerol € 22.55 may not be expensive but I will be looking elsewhere. Drink now - 2016.

(Clos René (Pomerol)) This has rather a sandy and nutty character on the nose here, which makes sense to me considering the location of the estate within the commune. The palate feels very soft and diffuse, with a supple and also rather light character. There is a subtle grip to it, as well as a slightly sour-fruit acidity. The texture and weight are certainly low key here, the flavours rather muted also.
