    We have followed this brilliant little Pomerol estate for several vintages and always look forward to tasting the latest wine. Nicolas Chasseuil is justly delighted with his 2004. The blend is 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and both green harvesting and selection in the cellar were severe. The wine is silky and fine with beautifully polished tannins. Thanks to yields of 47hl/ha, this wine also has great intensity and complexity. Highly recommended. Drink 2010-2020

    Only 50% of the crop was utilized in this 1,415-case blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Elegant, earthy, black cherry, and currant notes are interwoven with notions of smoke and truffles. Possessing excellent texture, ripe fruit, and good body as well as length, if it develops more complexity, it may merit an outstanding score with additional time in the bottle. It should evolve for 15 or more years. Pomerol enthusiasts need to keep a watch for this estate as it is beginning to produce superlative wines. Drink 2008-2021

    Fifty percent of the 2004 crop was declassified, resulting in a final blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. This potentially outstanding effort boasts a deep ruby/plum/purple color in addition to a sumptuous perfume of underbrush, black cherry liqueur, raspberries, and toasty oak. Well-textured, medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic, and persistent and long in the mouth, this serious wine requires 2-4 years of bottle age; it should drink well for 15 or more. Drink 2008-2021

    Attractive, fresh, toasty nose. Lots of fruit on the mid palate. Well melded ripe tannins. Quite alcoholic. Unusually ripe for the vintage. Should give pleasure, though not a long term bet. A particularly good vintage for this property. Drink 2008-2016

It took us 5 attempts to finally find this discreet "château", but once we did we soon realised it was worth our while. A standout amongst its similarly priced peers.

Region

Pomerol

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
