4 stars for Fleur Cardinale, Sansonnet, Virginie de Valandraud, Valandraud (17.5)
3 stars for Clos du Beau Père, which puts it is the top 20/25 in Pomerol, reaching our goal. We just need to aim for a better note. 3 stars as well for: Clos Badon Thunevin, Haut Carles, Domaine des Sabines (also in the top 20), Fourcas Hosten.
We’re just missing our whites and Bellevue de Tayac, we’ll see in the print copy?

Hurrah to Jean Marc Quarin who propelled Rémi Dalmasso’s wine Clos Romanile into the stratosphere. I should point out that with 1500 bottles produced, few will be able to taste it and buy some!
