Pomerol

Château La Conseillante

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Deep and sexy. A hint of dried wood. Dark plum and underbrush. Gnarly and delicious. Seems a bit brutish alongside a perfectly stored 90. Very good though. — 3 days ago

Château Rouget

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

This second bottle from case was excellent. Needed masses of air. Initially mute & stalky on the nose. With an hour started to wake and at three was singing. Definitely an older style— less precise even at forty years than modern vintages but you could also see where this was heading. Should evolve and improve flavor definition further & further while at plateau for next 10-15 (very youthful). For me characteristic Rouget “iron” terroir note coming through beautifully in mid-palate. Excellent value — 10 days ago

Château La Fleur de Boüard

Lalande de Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Whoa Nelly this was good. It hit its stride in the third hour, at which time it showed it with rich dark fruit, charred toast, cola, silky tannin, and nice medium acid. Lots of life left in this vintage I’m sure, but splendid right now. — 8 days ago

Château L'Eglise-Clinet

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Let’s be honest, some bourdeaux wines “pair well” with a steak. This paired well with just a wine glass ;) — 5 days ago

Château L'Evangile

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Magic hour, magic wine. Pristine bottle of 1995 L’Evangile delivered - graphite, smoke and cassis perfume reflected perfectly in the palate with notes of juicy plums and chewy tannins. Happy Friday y’all — 16 days ago

Vieux Château Certan

La Gravette de Certan Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Popped and poured; no formal notes. The 2010 “La Gravette de Certan” pours a deep ruby, almost purple color with some fine sediment. Gorgeous aromas of ripe brambles, plums, purple flowers, cocoa, graphite minerals and baking spices. That palate is treated to a luxurious silken blanket of flavor with ample fruit that is deftly balanced by minerals, earth and a gentle kiss of spices. The structure, which is wonderfully integrated, props everything up. The finish is long and effortlessly charming. This is classic Pomerol. Even though this is the second wine of VCC, it’s treated like (and drinks like) it’s one of the great wines of the appellation. Everyone who shared this bottle tonight was completely smitten. Drinking so well now and should continue to do so for at least another 5-10 years…but no reason to wait. — a month ago

Château Gazin

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. — 17 days ago

Lovely right bank merlot. A little barnyard on the nose, but a very soft finish. Thanks Mike Swann! — 25 days ago

2019 vintage. Tight ripe tannic structure and good black and red fruit concentration with an intriguingly mineral finish. Good value at 39 euro. — a month ago
