Château Gombaude-Guillot Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 1996

Member Review by uursw:

I consumed the bottle as part of my belated Birthday celebration . It exhbits a richness and depth unexpected for its age. A hint of plum and herb on the nose. The tannins that must have been overwhelming when young have softened but not completely. Initial taste of tart cherry, slight herbal, anise and cassis notes, hints of toasted marshmallow and black plum at the finish. I let the wine decant for an hour to let the slight residue settle and to allow it open up a bit. It's tannins were quite evident in the forefront so I let it decant for another hour. This time, the wine presented quite nicely and displayed all the rich tree fruit notes as described above.
