Fashioned from yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare with 13.5% natural alcohol, the opaque ruby-hued 2008 exhibits tell-tale floral notes intertwined with raspberries, sweet black cherries, licorice and cassis. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and strikingly pure as well as multilayered, the 2008, despite its precociousness, will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for 20-25 years. It is one of the top successes of the vintage

All that has changed as evidenced by the profound 2008. This flowery, flamboyant, complex Pomerol exhibits incredible sweetness, an inky/ruby/purple color, and a sensational, full-bodied, velvety, lush texture (crammed with blue and black fruits) that caresses the palate with a delicacy as well as the incredible substance of a world-class dancer. The sweetness of the tannin, beautiful precision and purity, nuanced character from good acids, and incredibly low yields have resulted in an other-worldly, sublime wine that clearly merits its name. This 2008 Pomerol will be drinkable in 3-4 years, and should evolve for three decades.
