There are typically vivid fruit tones in the wines from the Jean-Pierre Moueix stable in 2015. It might sound daft but they make Pomerol to drink. I don’t mean in a flashy and upfront sense, but wines that appeal through delicacy, balance and harmony. The emphasis here is on fragrance and freshness. There is a vitality across the range that is impressive. Château Lafleur-Gazin and Château Latour à Pomerol are stand-out beauties. Château Bourgneuf is consistent year in, year out and the 2015 looks especially good to me. At the top of the range, there is a brooding effort from Château Hosanna, a delicious and nimble Château La Fleur-Pétrus and what looks to be profound and deep Château Trotanoy. So plenty to enjoy here!

The wines from the Jean-Pierre Moueix stable are invigorating. There’s a zap and bounce to the Pomerols here that is refreshing and my feeling is that they have done extremely well with their 2014s. There is plenty of pretty, vibrant fruit and sappy vigour on offer, wines with a juicy texture and ripe, soft tannins. It makes these wines irresistible to me. Amongst the more affordable Pomerols, Château Lafleur-Gazin is delicious, Château Bourgneuf has depth and texture and Château Plince has attractive delicacy. Further up Château Latour à Pomerol is layered and vital while Château Hosanna is a voluptuous beauty and virtually steals the show. Château La Fleur-Pétrus is silky and delicate and Château Trotanoy substantial.
