(AG=90) The 2012 Le Clos du Beau-P_re, Jean-Luc Thunevin's Pomerol, is deep, powerful and explosive, with quite a bit of nuance for a wine of its size. Although not exactly the last word in complexity or subtlety, there is something quite engaging about the wine's immediacy and pure deliciousness. (JS=90) Blueberry, blackberry, mineral and spice character. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Improved with barrel maturation. Better in 2018.
