(1999 Vintage) Wine is distinguished by great finesse, supple, glossy texture and round, ripe fruitiness. This is a precocious Pomerol that can age well for 10 years after the vintage.
salty, French fry nose, swirls away to dark fruit.... gets better and better with each sip... does NOT need more time. Merlot. no tannins, no acidity, very easy drinking, but very good flavor... if you're used to right bank Bordeaux's. Would definitely acquire again.
