Lalande De Pomerol, Libournais

Domaine de Gachet

Lalande de Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

A very enjoyable right Bank Bordeaux. Showing red and black fruits with earth, wet leaves, herbs and peppercorn.

Full bodied and bold with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Grippy finish with hugh tannins.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. After 3 hours it is very tannic.

Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel, and will age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Château L'Evangile

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Thick, strong blueberry flavors and a bit savory. Opening a bit after 5 hour decant. Seems like it has great potential. Will put in a dark corner of the cellar and check in again in 10 years. This is not even close to being ready. — 4 days ago

Château Lafleur

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Hands down the wine of the 2018 vintage. Precision, depth, length, complexity and full of life. I wouldn’t be surprised if this turns out to be a perfect wine one day. Even as a barrel sample, simply wow. No other 2018 could compete. 97-99pts — 8 days ago

Big fruit on the nose. Cherries and oak. Lingers for eons. Still very young

Château Feytit Clinet

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

A hedonistic Pomerol in every sense of the word, this wine shows all the signatures of the warm, ripe 2015 vintage. There are certainly better values in 2015, but you definitely get your money’s worth here. Give the oak a few more years to integrate, then this should be ready to rock — 14 days ago

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Stunning but not quite as captivating as the Lafleur. A champion of a vintage for Petrus. 96-98pts — 8 days ago

Château Rouget

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Classic Bordeaux, rich, deep, brooding flavor, that would be perfect with steak. This Merlot shines, with plum and black currant type flavors. Just the right age now. — 4 days ago
