2016 Château d'Aiguilhe, Côtes de Castillon
A briary cream of a nose, then creamy entry, then direct and very fresh of core with dry, grippy structure. Pure cherry and plum fruit. Very briary. Energetic, long and stuffed. Lots at the death. Very busy indeed. Will be a bargain.
2016 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol
Nose a richly spiced cream of bramble and plum, very ripe. This is loaded with dry, fine structure. Curiously glue-y tannins. Quite hard work, but will come good.
2016 Le Plus de La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol
Dry and shy nose. Very, very dry tannins that seem extracted fvrom wood. Hard graft. Ouch.
