Pomerol, Libournais

Château La Pointe

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Cherry and red fruit on the nose. Definite earthen quality that predominates. Took a while to open up, but was beautiful once it did. Another one that could age for a few more years. — 4 days ago

Château Hosanna

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Really elegant Pomerol that punches above its weight for the vintage. Delicious to drink now but with lots of potential. Highly recommended. — 17 days ago

Château Lafleur

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

17.5/20 (94/100) Необходима аэрация и через некоторое время аромат становится глубоким, комплексным с нотами спелых слив, вишни, красной смородины, ментола, лакрицы, табака, макового зерна, горьких луговых трав и шоколада. Довольно тельное с высокой кислотностью и шелковистыми танинами. Строгое во вкусе. Удивительная для Помроля легкость и изящество в сочетании с глубиной. #dfwe2019 — 20 days ago

Château Trotanoy

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1970

Delectable Wine
9.4

The 1970 Trotanoy is a wine that I have encountered several times and – caveat emptor – it is variable and prone to TCA issues. This bottle initially sports a metallic note on the nose, although it dissipates to reveal engaging scents of dark berry fruit, undergrowth and the hint of traditional Japanese green tea that I have noted before. Perhaps it does not quite deliver the precision of the best bottles I have come across. The palate is structured and tannic – a “serious” Trotanoy that is determined to impress despite a touch of rusticity. This is a broad-shouldered, rather stocky Trotanoy with impressive depth and just a hint of black olive on the long finish. It will not improve with cellaring but it remains a great Pomerol that has tasted so well for almost half a century. Tasted at Fook Lam Moon in Hong Kong. (Neal Martin, Vinous, December 2019)

2019.11.28 at Jawad's house.
We had Sushi and would be a waste to drink it with it.
So just looked at this $5000 bottle

Château Nenin

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2007

I love finding a great wine from a poor vintage and here is one. Beautifully clean in the glass, vibrant, deep colour with a rounded inviting perfumed nose. Very smooth on the palate, tannins are fully integrated and a savoury start of peppers and truffle gives way to fruit, cedar, lavender and leather. Very drinkable and enjoyable, probably at the peak of its window given the vintage. As a side note, Chateau Nenin has aged this at their cellars until 2017 before shipping . Recommended if you’re having a Bordeaux night. — 18 days ago

When a Bordeaux vintage is classified as poor or difficult, I see opportunity & value pricing.

Clos Toulifaut

Pomerol 2001

Quite rustic and poopy.
Still some freshness and fruit underneath, though.
