Pomerol, Libournais

Château Lafleur

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Delectable Wine
9.8

The 2015 Lafleur has a broody but intense bouquet with exquisite definition and top quality Cabernet
Franc showing through. This just has to be Lafleur! The palate is extremely well balanced with gentle grip, almost powdery in texture and demonstrating enormous depth and persistence on the finish. It is nowhere near ready but it will be a wonderful Pomerol. There is a sense of audacity here that is compelling. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

Château La Violette

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Delectable Wine
9.6

The 2015 La Violette has a very comely bouquet with red berry fruit, leather, sage and black truffle
scents that are very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, and gentle grip. A rounded finish belies that
backbone. What a superb Pomerol - very convincing, modern in style, sleek and quite penetrating. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. (Neal Martin, Vinous, July 2019)

Château Grand Beauséjour

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Strong oak notes for the first hour or so after opening but softened shortly thereafter. Really opulent and silky smooth...great with a rich and savory meal. Merlot done right! — 4 days ago

Vieux Château Certan

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

A pretty nose with soft mature plummy fruit, dried cherries, a gentle bloodiness. The palate has good fully mature fruit but a slightly tart and drying finish.... this improved a lot on the finish with food. Supple and quite generous. Good! — 13 days ago

Château Clos L'Eglise

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

I have a history with this wine as it was an early love for me circa 1999 off a wine list at Aureole (the original Aureole). In haven’t had it in almost as many years and so a I grabbed a few bottles of 09. I don’t drink a lot of Bordeaux anymore but this seems to display more earth and less fruity to me than I expected. Bold alcohol content. Still showing some sharp edges. I like this wine but my 25 year old self had a very different palate. — 12 days ago
