The 2014 Bon Pasteur was tasted twice. The bottle at the UGC did not show its best, but a second in Pomerol was much better with clean and pure brambly red fruit on the nose laced with sandalwood and truffle. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannin, a "cool" Pomerol that has a little greenness towards the finish (which I noticed out of barrel). I actually appreciate this more classic style of Bon Pasteur, though it will benefit from a couple of years in bottle. Drink Date 2020-2035

Aromas of plums and chocolate with hints of walnuts. Medium body and integrated tannins that are soft and juicy. Even so, there’s lots of fruit and mineral character underneath; search it out! Need two or three years to open.

The 2014 Le Bon Pasteur is supple, open-knit and tasty. Super-ripe black cherry, smoke, mocha, tobacco and French oak give the wine its fleshy, seductive personality. The 2014 is not especially complex, but it is quite delicious. Tasted two times.

Tasted blind. A bit sweet and oaky on the nose. Then it falls away a bit. Flattering and easy but a bit simple.

This Pomerol is the home Chateau of the world-famous winemaker Michel Rolland and his wife Dani. Made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. A black colour. Classic nose of ripe cherry and kirsch with vanilla new oak. Big, juicy, plump and polished in the mouth with spices complimenting the blackberry fruit. Opulent and long but not too forced. An attractive, silky, polished Pomerol.

This has a succulent edge, with friendly raspberry and boysenberry confiture notes underscored by warm fruitcake flavors and a hint of ganache. Drink now through 2026. 1,250 cases made.
