The 2015 La Violette has a very comely bouquet with red berry fruit, leather, sage and black truffle scents that are very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, and gentle grip. A rounded finish belies that backbone. What a superb Pomerol – very convincing, modern in style, sleek and quite penetrating. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
