Andreas Larsson

TASTED 100% BLIND

“Leather, tobacco leaf, fine wood. So a classic style of wine. Elegant and not really any presence of new oak, more on the fruity, spicy side. So an elegant wine for an elegant meal.”

Guillermo Huerta 

“Smooth and earthy.”

JAMES SUCKLING

“Attractive chocolate, walnut aromas with hints of plums. Full body, with silky tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Very refined and beautiful.”

Wine Spectator

“A seductive and refined red, with loads of crushed berries, flowers, olives and spices. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and beautiful harmony. Best after 2006. 1,000 cases made.”

The Hachette Wine Guide

“This small property located in the Toulifaut area premiered with its 1998 vintage. The wine, exclusively from Merlot grapes planted on ferruginous sand, has rapidly attained rare distinction. An almost black robe is mirrored with purple and garnet reflections. The bouquet explodes with a sensation of aromas: violets, blackcurrants, vanilla, tobacco, and toasted wood…. In the mouth, this powerful but elegant wine is well-balanced, with full round tannins. In a few years, this 2000 will be a perfect match for game or Tournedos Rossini with truffles. Remember that the 1999 vintage of Chateau Pomeaux received our “Coup de Coeur” (Supreme Award).”

The Wine Advocate (Robert M. Parker, Jr.)

“The owner’s push to increase the quality at this estate is admirably revealed in the character-filled 2000. Dense ruby ​​/ purple, with a sweet, sensual nose of black fruits intermixed with hints of wood, cedar, and spice, this medium-bodied offering exhibits ripe tannin in its lush, plump finish. It should drink well for 10-12 years.”

French Wine Review

“We like it a lot. On the nose the wine seems expressive, mature and ripe. It offers a complex and luxurious texture in the mouth, and it has superb length.”

“A spicy nose which expresses the wine’s red fruit marmalade. It has a nice beginning in the mouth and strong, well-rounded tannins which provide aging potential.”

“A superb revelation! It competes with the top Pomerols with an intense body and structure and a stylish bouquet. Tasted again after a long aeration, it confirmed our enthusiasm. An excellent deal.”
