Two recent tastings of the 2000 La Gomerie both reinforced my comments of seven years ago. An interesting thing about this 100% Merlot is how well it ages. Perhaps it deserves more attention. Its dense purple color is followed by a beautiful perfume of spring flowers creme de cassis jammy black cherries licorice graphite and espresso roast. Full-bodied deep superbly concentrated pure long and made in a modern style it should drink well for another decade. Published: Jun 28 2010

Vinous: 92 Points

Full medium ruby. Exotic slightly candied aromas of roasted raspberry musky espresso earth smoke coffee bean and sweet nutty oak. Superripe lush and fat; at once chewy and velvety with superb depth of flavor. Sweet sappy flavors of black cherry and licorice nicely firmed by underlying minerality. Finishes long and subtle with substantial but fine tannins and excellent vinosity. A lovely expression of merlot and a great success for this tiny property.

Super well-crafted wine. This shows wonderful blackberry and mint aromas that follow through to a full-bodied palate with soft and silky tannins and a long fruity aftertaste. Best after 2008.
