Juxtapose With You: Pétrus, Lafleur & Le Pin

During the countless days researching my Pomerol tome there were inevitably periods between visits when I had to face the fact there is absolutely nothing to do there. Not even a café to buy a half-decent reviving espresso to keep me awake.

2016 Domaine Ruet Morgon Les Grands Cras ($24.00) 92

2016 Domaine Ruet Morgon Les Grands Cras, 92 points
