Pomerol, Libournais

Château L'Eglise-Clinet

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

Raised a glass tonight to owner and winemaker Denis Durantou who passed in May. We were fortunate to meet him for a tasting and tour of his property back in 2012....a wonderful person, great winemaker with a sly sense of humor....jokingly told us Chateau Petrus knew it was time to pick their fruit when they would look over and see him picking his fruit😂.

1.5 hour decant (lots of chunky sediment). A superb dark garnet color with some bricking. On the nose: Very Expressive! with forest floor, plum, sweet vanilla, earthy, floral, and band aids. Taste: A soft medium body wine with plum/strawberry, minerals, crushed rocks, leading to a dry pencil lead finish. Well Done in a "difficult" vintage ( though many in Pomerol picked before all the Sept. rain).

Château Clinet

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Virtual tasting with the Wine Nerd Herd...2010 and older BDX...paired with a Lamb Burger and garlic aïoli for the  fries. Drank over three hours, ruby ​​garnet in the glass. Has a sparkle to it. Blackberry, fine wood spice, nuances of blackberries and licorice and tangerine. Juicy fine tannins, has another 10 years ripening potential. — 19 days ago

Château Gazin

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2007

One of my favorite Pomerols. The color is a deep dark red despite its age; it does have a brownish rim. The nose is opulent with black cherry, oak and tobacco. The mouthfeel is luscious with plum, oak, smoke, and hints of dark chocolate. The acidity is bright, the tannings are firm, and the finish long and full a earthy savoryness. Complexing and involving on every sip. Paired with lamb potato purée and asparagus. — 5 days ago

Thanks @Ron R. You inspired me to take better pix. Honest truth.

Vieux Château Certan

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Shows a certain freshness on the nose. Oddly enough is has a Burgundy type of allure to it. Light red berry fruit and orange rind. Wine improved with aeration and gained weight. Tannins are super fine make way for a touch of mocha, hickory and feral hog. — 15 days ago

One of the questions I have gotten most often on 2019 Bordeaux is about highlighting under the radar, classically built wines. This is one of my favorites... 🤪🍷💥🤪😱 — 10 days ago

Château La Conseillante

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

2004.
Tellement plaisant a boire maintenant.
Beau fruit. Bleuet....mûre et cette jolie odeur chocolatée persistante qui rassemble les fruits.
La matiere est grasse et complexe. La finale est longue et sexy. Un beau vin de bouffe.
J'adore La Conseillante....un vin remarquable.
