From Lalande de Pomerol, near the vaunted appellation of Pomerol, responsible for the world’s most revered merlot, Château Petrus, this merlot-centric red displays the rounded smoothness for which the grape is prized. It delivers solid mid-palate weight and layered complexity, with notes of blueberry, black olive, vanilla, dark coffee and cedar. It is beautifully tailored, with a tug of tannins on the finish. Cellar it for up to eight years.
