From magnum. Smoking good. Streamlined, detailed, and direct, with good structure and excellent focus. Tight and tense, wound up, with rose and oak spice on the nose and a core of red cherry, licorice, cocoa and mint on the palate. The tannin work is fabulous here, they're present but ripe, giving framework but in now way drying or tiresome. Fresh and firm. Big fan of this. — 14 days ago

Château Lecuyer

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

This is drinking beautifully now. Dark cherries, dark chocolate, and pleasant graphite on the nose. Lush, soft tannins that exude elegance as the wine rolls around my tongue. Long and satisfying finish. Looking forward to my second bottle in several years time. — 8 days ago

Château Nenin

Échantillon Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Served with amazing Mediterranean lamb, nearly hitting the spot. Wish it had been aged longer or open more than four hours in advance, definitely can use some sharper definition.

At this point, it’s the freshman quarterback falling short on a last second, game winning, goal line play. Disappointing now but with a lot of future promise.

L'Hospitalet de Gazin Pomerol 2017

So ,this has all the good sings of Pomerol but a little week on the knees unfortunately. Time may serve ir well but not by much imho. Still a good wine but just expecting more from the label perhaps. — 7 days ago

From magnum. Wild. Savage, sanguine notes of juicy wild berry, rose, mushroom, and barrel funk on the nose. This tugs the palate in many directions at once, at times dark fruited, others herb-tinged, others earthy, smoky as well. This needs time. It's a big boy, too, with big boy tannins and real presence in the mouth. Wine of character. Good stuff. — 7 days ago

Domaine de Gachet

Lalande de Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

It's time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim. Not showing age at all.

Nice nose of black currants, black plums, cherries, light oak, licorice, spices, coffee, light barnyard, herbs and black pepper.

Medium plus in body and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with black plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, diet coke, dark chocolates, coffee, earth, graphite, vegetables and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very enjoyable Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend from the great 2009 vintage. Drinks like a young wine, and will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.

Needs a long time to open up, so be patient with it. Took 4 hours for the tannins to show up.

Thank you Wendy for sharing this with me.

I had the 2008 a couple of years ago and enjoyed it too. Very consistent.

Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel. Ripe, elegant and fruity.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc. Aged in French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$40 (current vintage).
