Pomerol, Libournais

Pensées de Lafleur

Pomerol 2011

Oh my, this is soooo good ! Violets, crushed roses, dark fruits, earthy, medium bodied, long, elegant. This is 1st growth quality and is now good to drink, albeit its obvious it will develop further. One of the best and finest wines fo the vintage. Enthusiastically recommended. — 2 days ago

Château La Conseillante

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Delectable Wine

The 2005 La Conseillante is a rich, heady Pomerol. Crème de cassis, lavender, chocolate, leather, espresso, licorice and sweet French oak infuse the 2005 with tremendous character. The 2005 is, naturally, a wine of its era. There is quite a bit of extraction and tannin, and yet the wine has aged impeccably. Time in the glass brings out energy and aromatic lift to round things out nicely. The 2005 just got better and better with time, so I suggest giving it a good bit of air. I would prefer to drink it over the next decade or so. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2021)

Is this 2020 primeur sample?

Château Lafleur

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

The cork was disintegrating and the bottle was not entirely off but not as we remember this wine. Great fruit and tanins underneath what tasted as a very evolved and somewhat “cooked” Lafleur. Hoping our last couple of bottles will be better than this one… — 16 days ago

Clos René

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

The wine last night was the 2015 Clos René Pomerol Right Bank Bordeaux. A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec.

On the nose there is cherry, raspberry, black currant, violets, anise, faint hints of oak and earth.

On the palate there is bkack cherry, black raspberry, plum, blaxk currant, licorice, minerals and earth.

This is a full bodied wine with a silky smooth mouthfeel, medium to medium + acidity and medium to medium + fine tannins that moves into a long dark fruit earthy finish. As we move firmly into spring and into this coming weekend lets enjoy our lifes fortunate new beginnings. Let us keep or eyes, minds and hearts open to all lifes new rewards. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Château Le Bon Pasteur

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

James Parker Huston, CWE

The family Estate of Michel Rolland, aka The Good Shepherd. This wine was in an amazing place with dried black plum, black berry, raspberry with secondary notes of bakers chocolate, fine herbs and toast. $85 at Auction was a steal. — 19 days ago

Château Belles-Graves

Lalande de Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Firm, gripping tannin. Decidedly dark finish, though a lingering brightness persists. Merlot plushness comes out with time. — 24 days ago
