ABOUT THE WINE
An exceptional 12-hectare estate located on the boundary between Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, which can trace its history back to 1735. Acquired by the Nicolas family in 1871, the estate has remained unchanged since, and is today still managed by the family. Winemaking facilities were renovated in 2012, and 50-80% new barrels are used for each vintage, depending on the character of the wine from that year. Barrel-ageing is usually 18 months.

TASTING NOTES
Astonishing finesse, with powerful aromatics of spicy, dark fruit and violets. On the palate it is fresh and harmonious, with blackberry and raspberry fruit, smooth and creamy with plenty of underlying structure; hefty tannins have softened beautifully with time. This was always a wine to hold; less appealing on release than the 2005, but with exceptional potential; drink from 2016.

FOOD PAIRING
Excellent with game or beef; hold back on the spice, as this wine has beautiful subtlety which anything too flavoursome might hide.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A stellar wine; will age gracefully until 2036.
