Château Plince is known and recognized today by amateurs and professionals as the wine from Pomerol of great quality. In 1995, it took the bronze medal at the agricultural show of Paris, then won the gold medal in 2000. Located at the exit east of Libourne, the property of Château Plince is close to Château Nénin and opposite Château La Pointe. Its total surface is more than 10 hectares, of which 8,66 hectares are planted in vine. The vineyard is of only one holding and is located on a ground of dark sand largely provided in "iron" which contributes to the richness of the wine. Pair with lamb and game, whether roasted or prepared as a steak.

Wine SpectatorAromas of boysenberry syrup with hint of licorice follow through to a full body, with a dense palate and slightly chewy tannins. Juicy wine, with a slightly rustic edge. But I like it.

Wine EnthusiastThe potential for a juicy, fruity wine lurks here beneath the youthful, extracted tannins. The wine certainly has density, with its rich structure coming through strongly. However, it needs aging over at least 10 years.

Wine AdvocateA big, chunky, somewhat corpulent wine with delicious black currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with some damp earth, truffle and forest floor, this 2009 is round, medium to full-bodied, dark plum/purple, and best drunk over the next 10-12 years.

Robert Parker, February 2012
