A reliable wine, but not a great one. A Pomerol - from the Bordeaux appellation with the most expensive wines - which simply cannot move up to the really great ones, even though in the past few years, investments were made in the wine estate, in the cultivation of the vines, in the cellar, in the vinification. The Moreau family - which also owned the Château Clos l'église until 1997 - has invested a lot in the large wine estate - with about 9 hectares, it is one of the largest in Pomerol. The fact that the wine did not reach 90 (and more) Parker points in any - not even in the last vintages - is actually astonishing. Parker says that the site (the soil) did not allow it, that the potential was exhausted. It borders on sacrilege to contradict Parker. I'll do it anyway: The vineyard is located in the south of the appellation, not far from Libourne, and has rather sandy soil. This is (they say) not the terroir where the great wines are made. Petrus and Co. are located far more north-east, much closer to Saint-Emilion. Is this the reason for the rather modest recognition of Plince's wines, because it can't be for lack of effort (and skill) to make a top wine here too?
