Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

(Barrel sample put in bottle before tasting) Amazingly transparent of its clay soils. You swear you can taste and smell the blue clay in the wine. Dense, suave, and seamless. So young, so much depth waiting to be released in the future. — 2 days ago

Château Le Gay

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Say what you want about Michel Rolland, but this exudes sooooo much character and is becoming a secondary stud! Killer fruit profile with damp earthen elements at its core. Shares some of the same blue clay soils as it's neighbor (Chateau Petrus!). Thank you to Marcelo and Henri Parent for hosting me and my wife for our stay in Pomerol at the estate!!! — 2 days ago

Château Feytit Clinet

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

A nice wine, but I just couldn't get past the Brett. I really didn't go back to this one after tasting it for the first time. See Shay's tasting note on this one!! — 12 hours ago

This was an outlier of the evening, so I’m trying to take that in to consideration. Still, it just didn’t really have the weight or fruit I expected. At 19yrs old, I figured this Pomerol would be a great mix of blackberries and currant with a balance of herbs and leather. Instead, it was mainly leather and some oregano...even some clay. Don’t have much experience with this producer, so I’m unsure of what to expect.

Château les Cruzelles

Lalande de Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Delectable Wine

Les Cruzelles, Denis Durantou's Lalande de Pomerol, is once again impressive in 2015. There is notable volume and unctuousness to the super-ripe red cherry, espresso and mocha flavors. The 2015 needs another year or two to come together, but it is super-impressive. Les Cruzelles is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc from gravelly soils. The 2015 spent one year in French oak, 45% new. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb 2018) — 19 days ago

So impressed with this gift from my close bud @Martin G Rivard. I’ve never heard of this, and boy, I’ve missed out! This is a contemporary-styled Bdx, which tilts towards the Francophiles amongst us.
The nose is dark and brooding with licorice, sage and tobacco. The palette is plush and semi-sweet. Lovely blackberries, brambles and plum fruits. Built for the long-haul, consume now, or over the next 10 years - outstanding!
Thanks so much, Martin 😍

Great example @Martin G Rivard. I forgot to say that I let this breathe for several hours, so no hit-n-run here 🙂
