At its best, 2016 Pomerol are stunning wines blending precision, purity and decadence.
You can tell when you drink this good value Pomerol. Deep ruby in colour, medium + intensity on the nose and very appealing fruitiness. On the palate, you get excellent ripe blackberry and black plums with good freshness. So good you can almost drink on its own. Highly recommended.
