AOP Pomerol

Château La Rose Figeac 2018

€890 Flacon de 10cl

Pomerol, near Libourne, is one of the most prestigious appellations on Bordeaux’s right bank, and an exceptional winegrowing area despite its small size. The nose of this intense and fruity Pomerol boasts notes of sweet cherry, violet and blackberry jam. Its fleshy mouthfeel leads into a full mid-palate with nice texture and silky tannins. This is a beautifully long Pomerol with the perfect balance of fruit and texture.
