Lalande De Pomerol, Libournais

Château Fayat

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

It’s time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday. Here's a nice one from Pomerol.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish/ brick rim.

Fruity on the nose with blueberries, black cherries, sweet strawberries, black plums, vanilla, licorice, leather, earth, light vegetables, dark coffee, oak, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, plums, earth, wood, spices, vegetables, vanilla, vinaigrette, black pepper, tobacco leaf, black tea, leather and wet leaves.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This five-year-old Merlot from Bordeaux is starting to drink very nicely now. Starting to show some age and nice complexity. Elegant with a great nose, from a great vintage.

Nicely balanced now and good to drink by itself or with food. Will get even better in the next 15 years.

Needs 2 hours to open up properly, so do give it time.

A good quality wine. Tangy, easy drinking and very tasty. Kosher.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

14% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$100.

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

Dark garnet in color. On the nose—Mushroom, dark plum and currants, wet rock lingers throughout with sweet scents of cream brûlée. Taste is very different - initially on the tongue dark raspberry plum, as you drink the wine caramel chocolate coffee come out nicely and a minerally dry long finish. — 23 days ago

Lite mer mogen frukt. Mörka bär, apelsinskal, grus och rosor. Lite mer rustik än polerad, alltjämt elegant. Torrt fint avslut. — 17 days ago

A leather, a smoke, combined with the dark fruit (a plum): and you get this Bordeaux pigsty. :) Tasty, very tasty. I love its spicy short finish. Medium tannins. — 9 days ago

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1966

Tasted blind. Dark, old tawny color. Notes of black cherries, raspberries, smoke, cassis, light menthol, truffles, caramel, cola and old dark wood. Huge in the mouth. Very tasty. This was the real deal. Three old Pomerols.... Thanks Stan! — 22 days ago

This La Croix St Georges never disappoints. Perhaps a lesser known Pomerol producer but always solid quality - textbook Pomerol. — 23 days ago

Vieux Château Certan

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1945

Tasted blind. Tawny color, dark and opaque. Notes of mocha, slate stone, smoked meats, blueberries. Seems like a La La - maybe La Turque? Dry and tight in the mouth, but turned more silky as it gained air in the glass. Evolved and showed different characteristics. Added some tobacco leaf, some herbal thing, some menthol. While the nose says Cote-Rotie, the mouth says it's probably not. Lucious and silky, what a treat. Bottle reportedly was VTS fill. This is in no way past it’s prime yet. — 22 days ago

La Petite Eglise

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Superb nose. Very floral, perfume, lilac. Abit young now with the tannin and bitter finish but a very classic pomerol palate. I am enjoying this. The wine elvolve and changes every hour like you can take a good pomerol changes across 5yrs every 1 hr with this. Very good value for money — 18 days ago
