A fleshy, full-throttle wine with lots of mocha, kirsch, mulberry, and plum, their 2010 displays a smorgasbord of aromas, a full-bodied mouthfeel, terrific purity, density and even a hint of lead pencil shavings and subtle toasty oak. If you want to understand the genius of the Rollands, there is no better example than looking at their own wine from this property in Pomerol. The tannins are present, but not that significant, thus I tend to think the wine will come into its own in 4-5 years and last for 20 or more.

Good dark red. Entrancing perfume of black raspberry, mulberry, flowers, mocha and spices. Dense, silky and savory, showing a lush texture and flamboyant early personality to the flavors of raspberry, mocha, graphite, sweet spices and underbrush. Spreads out impressively on the seriously structured back end, finishing with substantial but ripe and fine-grained tannins. This has the balance and energy to age nicely but will hardly hurt your teeth if you'd like to try a bottle now. A superb vintage for the home property of Michel and Dany Rolland.
