Chateau Plince 1955 - Pomerol
The Moreau family produces wine from ten hectares located near the prestigious castles and Nénin Pointe. There are 3 varieties in this bottle: nearly three quarters of merlot and the rest cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon. Quite rare in Pomerol grapes are harvested by machine for winemaking following the Bordeaux tradition and takes place in concrete temperature controlled vats. It follows aged for 12 to 18 months in wooden barrels with a low proportion of new wood. A total of nearly 45 000 bottles are produced each year. Thus was born a dense and flexible Pomerol, tannic and fruity, with a complexity and depth that only require time to flourish. If the 2010 is rather plain, the two years that frame deserve your attention. 2009 is flexible and elegant 2010 is tannic and serious. More broadly, this wine has a very good price / quality ratio.

A great vintage combining quality and abundance. Perfect weather, a hot and dry summer followed by a September slightly damp engendered Wine rich, ripe and aromatic. Austere and firm in their first youth, these wines have become deep, concentrated particularly attractive. Sauternes grow much flexibility and smoothness. Most wines of this vintage are now underestimated and under-rated and represent excellent deals for their buyers.
