Château Le Pin

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Ethereal, silky and marvelously poised, the 2011 Le Pin (WWB, 97) is sourced from an extremely small estate is located in the commune of Pomerol. It is amongst the world's most expensive red wines, as this was very graciously shared by my colleague Dr. Hong. I was most impressed by the opulent, pillowy texture of the wine, which is still quite primary now at the eight year mark. Elegant tannins line the massive core of dark fruits, all leading the breathtaking, near minute-long finish. This true heavyhitter really needs another ten years of bottle age to hit its stride and will provide drinking enjoyment past my lifetime. Drink 2025-2055- 97 — 19 hours ago

Clos René (Pierre Lasserre)

Pomerol 1966

Birth year wine for my birthday. Always a roll of the dice with wines this old but this one was really good. Opened up nicely with a little time in the glass. Surprised at the clarity and minimal oxidation. Still had red tones not overly orange on the edges. Classic Bordeaux nose. Leather on the finish. Not a ton going on mid plate (more soft and subtle fruit). Overall very pleasing wine. I wish I was aging as gracefully as this! — 9 days ago

Château L'Eglise-Clinet

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1994

Catching up on a few wines I didn't post reviews for....the 1994 L'Eglise Clinet is, in my view, rather tasty. Ok it's not a regarded vintage and it's fading, but this medium bodied wine still has elements of its dark fruit in place, though some enjoyable tertiary notes are more pronounced. — a month ago

Château Lafleur

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

This was shockingly open with sexy aromatics & spice where the Ausone needs another 10 years. Will be a legendary vintage for Lafleur. — 14 days ago
