Château Gazin

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

A great pomerol on a great vintage, Gazin is Merlot harvested at maturity but not over, great acidity and balance with the tell tale notes of Merlot now emerging. I would say better to wait another 3 to 5 years but this is a really excellent bottle. If you like distinct and not overdone Pomerols, go after this one ! — 6 days ago

Château Mazeyres

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

A blend of 72% Merlot, 22% of Cab Franc & 6% Petit Verdot. Aged for 14 months in French oak, nice fruit nose with floral citrus notes. On the palate, cherry and strawberry fruit, leaning towards the ripe side, crisp acidity with slight tangy character. Firm tannins, medium finish ending with an earthy mineral style. Nice value, will benefit from some short-term aging. — 6 days ago

Château La Pointe

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

This one has the stuffing to be good in the long run, but it needs more time. Soft nose of sweet kirsch, red flowers. Palate has some intense berry fruit and a slight muskiness but it’s very tightly wound and not really coming out to play. Revisit in 5-8. — 14 days ago

Château La Conseillante

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

I think French merlot has a different DNA than California merlot. Now in perfect balance. Like a chocolate dipped cherry. — 15 days ago

I am always willing pay top dollar for the good stuff. Actually, it is the original price tag, $59.99.

Château Garraud

Lalande de Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

70% Merlot, 29% Cab Franc, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. The bottle is from lalande de pomerol..... not quite the tannic wine I was expecting, but it was delicious, smooth, refined/elegant, and medium bodied. — a month ago

Château L'Evangile

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

This was pop and pour tonight to prepare us for our visit to the Chateau on Monday. What a lovely wine.! Gained depth and presence with an hour in glass. Subtle, silky, cassis, leather, good grip. Only critique is I’d like a bit more acidity to balance this out. — 5 hours ago
