Chateau La Violette 2009 Pomerol 75cl / 13.5%
A bottle of Chateau La Violette 2009 from Bordeaux's Pomerol appellation.
'Wow, did I underrate this wine from cask. I thought it was outstanding, but this wine is one of the superstars of the vintage. An extraordinarily provocative, exotic nose of a florist shop intermixed with raspberry and blueberry liqueur soars from the glass of this very aromatic/fragrant wine. Dense purple in color, with silky tannins, a full-bodied mouthfeel, great nobility and palate penetration, this is a sensational, compelling Pomerol to drink over the next 20-25 years. 98/100' Robert M. Parker Jnr, Wine Advocate, tasted 2012
