The Wine Advocate

"Fashioned from yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare with 13.5% natural alcohol, the opaque ruby-hued 2008 exhibits tell-tale floral notes intertwined with raspberries, sweet black cherries, licorice and cassis. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and strikingly pure as well as multilayered, the 2008, despite its precociousness, will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for 20-25 years. It is one of the top successes of the vintage."

All that has changed as evidenced by the profound 2008. This flowery, flamboyant, complex Pomerol exhibits incredible sweetness, an inky/ruby/purple color, and a sensational, full-bodied, velvety, lush texture (crammed with blue and black fruits) that caresses the palate with a delicacy as well as the incredible substance of a world-class dancer. The sweetness of the tannin, beautiful precision and purity, nuanced character from good acids, and incredibly low yields have resulted in an other-worldly, sublime wine that clearly merits its name. This 2008 Pomerol will be drinkable in 3-4 years, and should evolve for three decades.

This is another estate that has been resurrected by the dynamic Catherine Pere-Verge and her winemaking team, led by Michel Rolland. Previously, La Violette, much like St.-Emilion’s Chateau Belair, was just going through the motions, taking no risks, never crop-thinning. Moreover, there was no selection in either the vineyard or the triage tables.

"Still young, with freshness, purity and concentration, the fresh, sweet, spicy, lush, tannic, sensuously textured, with a beautiful, plummy, truffle character will only get better from here."

"2008 La Violette explodes from the glass with aromas of an entire field of fresh violets in full bloom. Add spice, plums, blue and blackberries, espresso and coca and youhave an idea of what this elixir of a perfume offers. In the mouth, the wine feels opulent, sexy, plush and long. The intense, polished finish lasts over 45 seconds. This is an exotic, sexy style of Pomerol for hedonists."

"Château La Violette from 100% Merlot, picked one berry at a time, smells like a massive bouquet of fresh picked violets, spice, bittersweet chocolate, oak, boysenberry and blueberry. This is extremely concentrated with opulent, flamboyant, pure fruit. While the flavors are intense, everything is in perfect balance. On the palate, the wine feels like each berry was polished, one by one. The wine ends with incredibly long flavors of ripe, pure, black raspberry liquor. This is a stunning wine that competes with the best Pomerol’s from any vintage."

"Ruby-red. Violet aromas intermingle with pomegranate and sweet licorice notes. Lovely minerally, pure red fruit flavors are framed by fine acidity and polished tannins. A very pure and seamless wine with a finish that lasts for minutes. No excesses here, just a simply excellent wine with near-perfect balance. In a tasting of the three vintages of La Violette made thus far by new owner Catherine Pere-Verge (working with consulting winemaker Michel Rolland), the '08 is the best of the three. In fact, this is one of the top half dozen wines of 2008-no great surprise to insiders who know that La Violette's vineyards are extremely well placed, and that outstanding wines, albeit in a different style, were already being made back in the '80s by the previous owner."
