Pomerol, Libournais

Château Clinet

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Very push deep and sexy. A lavish nose with damson and floral notes. Big fruit with plums, dark sweet fruit and some menthol. On the palate this is lush and mouth-filling. Hints of tobacco at the edges are the only sign this is 30 years old. Powerful. Lovely stuff. — 8 days ago

Château Belle-Brise

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

30+ minute decant, but should have PnP’d. Wine was dark red with plenty of brownish tints and bricking. Cigar box nose with dirt, tar, and subtle tartness on the palate. Wine was laboring and slowing starting to thin out. Definitely past prime but still very nice. Short finish. — 17 days ago

Château Hosanna

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2017 Hosanna was one of my favourite crus from Ets J-P Moueix from barrel. Now in bottle, it remains a delightful Pomerol. It has a generous and beautifully defined bouquet with ample red cherry, crushed strawberry and light black truffle aromas that are actually reminiscent of Bélair-Monange. The palate is medium-bodied but denser, thicker than its peers. There is real substance to this Hosanna that puts the relatively lightweight Certan-de-May in its place. It shows good grip with a saline finish. This is a deeply impressive Hosanna. Rejoice! (Neal Martin, Vinous, February 2020)

Château L'Eglise-Clinet

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

1hr+ decant and got better with more air. Dark purple color. Fruit forward on the nose and palate with dark cherries. Wine is deep and smothers the mouth. Big tannins and medium plus acidity. More new world than old world in my mind. Wouldn’t turn a glass away, but overpriced in my mind, but maybe 5-10yrs would make a big difference. — 9 days ago

Château Le Gay

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1950

Very dark and intense. Like pure cool fruit essence but a savory and aged thing. Some secondary notes. Almost inky. Very pure, quite thick then chalky. Excellent. 70 years old? No way.. that is crazyFrom mag. — 13 days ago

Château Grange-Neuve

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Damn nice Pomerol. Heavy black cherry nose and honestly there’s a lot of that same flavor on the front. Tannins were a bit high on day one but better day two, I get plum and pomegranate coming through, and thankfully there’s still some acidic soil to stave off the sugar rush. Alcohol burn seems balanced and I’m not gonna lie, I paired Night Two with some Sea Salt Organic Beet Chips by Rhythm. Worked well for me. — 11 days ago

Very fun comparing to the lynch bages. This one needs a little more time. Straight pepper bomb with an extremely tannic finish. — 9 days ago
