A clear contender for appellation of the vintage, with so many successful wines to choose from.
It performed the miracle that only Pomerol seems able to achieve of Merlot on early-ripening gravel soils that manage to maintain freshness. This was due to the underlying clays giving low pHs even with a peak temperature that hit 41°C in July, offset by small but regular rainfall – 30mm in July and again in August, 10mm on September 10, and a little heavier 23mm on September 22, which many estates tried to pick around.
