Pensées de Lafleur

Pomerol 2011

Great showing for one of our preferred wines. There is no rush as the underlying material is barely showing evolution now. Wonderful notes of dark berries, cherries and flowers. Please decant. Has a lot to it with great acidity and tanins and again no rush. Highly recommended !! — 16 days ago

Château Le Bon Pasteur

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

John W

Very dark ruby. Crimson around the rim. On the nose, currant, cherry, tobacco, strong florals, perhaps lilac. Very lovely bouquet- very fragrant nose. On the palate, currants, tobacco, vanilla, florals and oak. Medium-Full body, nicely balanced. Tannins still present after 8 years. Long finish of florals and oak. — 7 days ago

Vieux Château Certan

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2008


Cedar, black currant, herbs and spice. Velvety mid palate that quickly transitions into super bright tannins with a super long chewy finish. The wine is still very lievely and young. Will last ages. — 3 days ago

Château Vray Croix de Gay

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Definitely on the young side, but gave it a whirl after one hour in decanter. It was definitely open for business with plushness and more fruit forward characteristics of its youth. A really good Pomerol and one that I will continue to seek out. — 9 days ago

Château Lafleur

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1993

Safe to say we were committing infanticide in drinking this. Dark purple right to the rim and still unyielding in it's massive structure, the wine hardly even developed over the course of our 5-hour lunch. The nose opens with sweet almost-candied blackcurrants, tobacco leaves, and plenty of fresh herbs. It comes off as almost green, courtesy of the Cabernet Franc, which is really positive in this wine's case as it helps balance out the brooding fruit. The palate is dense and mouth-filling, with plush carpet-like tannins, and vibrant acidity. Finishes long, peppery, and a little gravelly. It's quite mind-boggling how much was packed into this wine without compromising on alcohol levels. While it's no blockbuster Lafleur, there's a sense of purity and old-school Bordeaux elegance that I really appreciate here. — a month ago

Château Trotanoy

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend

Bordeaux of the 1998 vintage for me. And a great Trotanoy. Sweet and soft tannins fully resolved. Gorgeous. Why can’t California do this with Merlot? — 23 days ago

Château La Conseillante

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Cedar and plum, with a little leather on the finish, nice, but lacking the grip it would need to really come together. — 22 days ago
