Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Pomerol: my favorite Bordeaux Appellation, by far. Solid! With so much life and time left in the bottle… Heck, I could pair this with prime rib eye and and it would cut the fat seamlessly. Yeah, this is outstanding, and will only get better and better, peaking in about four or five more years. Amazing prolonged intense tannic finish. Cheers. — a month ago

Château Chantecaille Clauzel

Saint-Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Aromas of plum and tobacco from this predominantly Merlot Wine with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc. Chocolatey flavours accompany the plum on the palate. This Wine is a rarity and was”discovered by Andrew Caillard MW from Australia’s leading auction house, Langtons. The grapes come from a tiny 0.4 Hectare Block along the boundary of St Emillion and Pomerol. The vineyard is surrounded by some of the biggest names of the right bank and is crammed between vines belonging to Ch L’Evangile and Ch La Dominique. Over the narrow gravel road is Chateau Petrus and Chateau Gazin. Across the D244 just a few metres away are vines belonging to Ch Cheval Blanc. It has largely existed unnoticed by the worlds Wine critics and survives in its current form because of it’s tiny size, local politics and dogged family hope” to paraphrase Caillard. Caillard goes on “Curiously the Chantecaille Vineyard has no Grand Cru classification because no Cellars have been built on the property. The Vineyard is so small (only 0.4 hectare) that any building would require the destruction of the Vineyard; a pointless exercise. As a consequence the crop is tractored to Chateau Guillot Clauzel in the commune of Pomerol, just a few kilometres away where it is vinified and then matured in barrel; all 5 or 6 of them! If “Chantecaille” was purchased by one of its more illustrious neighbours, the fruit could be incorporated in a more prized and expensive label!” The Wine itself was no Petrus but was medium bodied with M- intensity and light tannins Fermented in stainless steel and aged in used oak barrels it has little oak influence. All in all a curio. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for this little Vineyard. Postscript:
My longest ever Delectable Note but I thought it was an interesting story. 🍷

@David T Yes - the most likely scenario. Ironic if sold to Petrus it becomes a component of s Wine costing around $3600AUD as against the $40AUD I paid for this bottle.

As ironic as only 5-6 barrels actually ending up on the export market that far away from France. You’d think it would all stay in France and if there was any exported, it would end up in England.

I suspect that Andrew Caillard MW may have bought the lot or fair percentage of it for Langtons which he co-founded and sold to Woolworths. He calls this Wine “My Great Bordeaux Discovery “

Tasted at the Hearts Delight press lunch. Compared to the Grand Cru fromnvines right next door, this was a bit more enjoyable to me. Lots of bright energy, pretty lifted florals on the nose. Could sip this all summer. — 5 years ago

Château Rochebelle

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Paired with '93 Ch. Gazin over prime rib Christmas dinner (Both vintages from kid's birthyears). Both showed well (kids and the wines). Soft and supple with nice ripe cherry fruit. Elegant, balanced, with perfect texture. Drink now over next 10 years. — 5 years ago
