Pomerol & Lalande-de-Pomerol

To taste, Pomerol (Merlot is the staple grape) is a cross between a firm juicy Médoc and a broad, smooth and meaty Saint-Emilion. The character of the wine alters dramatically according to the soil and subsoil in the vineyard. For example, Château Pétrus, with its unique and very rare red and blue iron rich clay top soil and deep gravelly subsoil (it is usually the other way round in most vineyards), produces a formidable wine with consistence, depth, concentration and substance. On the other hand the soils with less clay and more sand and gravel produce “lighter” wines.

To the immediate north of Pomerol, Lalande-de-Pomerol produces keenly priced reds with very good ageing potential which can at times rival the wines of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, e.g., Château de Chambrun ; and deliver a superb quality price ratio. See bellow, we stock the 2001 and 2002 from this exceptional wine.

€19.50

As always with Merlot based wines, there is a deep dense opaque garnet colour when young. Attractively spicy and peppery on the nose also expressed on the palate. A typical rotund Merlot entry and a good flavour projection sustained by ripe and balanced tannins. Will keep.

€26

Ink dark. Beautiful blond tobacco and liquorice on the nose. A very spicy character with a serious depth of ripe toasty fruit from the Merlot and oak. One of the best buy on this list. Can be decanted but unfold well in the glass.

Château de Chambrun 2001

€31

The 2001 vintage was terrific for Merlot. Should you like Pomerol style Merlot based reds, this comes from a very good firmly structured vintage on the right bank. Delicious now when fully mature. Cherry fruits still toasted with a very fine balance and length. Only 6% Cabernet Franc in the assemblage. Perfect opportunity to acquire a mixed case with the 2002 vintage.

Pomerol

Very good indeed. Now perfectly mature with a lovely dusty textured tannin and a ripe Pomerol fruit character. Good concentration and a mellow core with good length give this Pomerol an excellent taste profile and a very good quality price ratio.

€141

Deep inky purple. Shows lots of a dominant character. The assemblage includes 12% Cabernet Sauvignon which is a rare thing in Pomerol; the earlier ripener Cabernet Franc is usually preferred in this region. This is a super ripe, super elegant, very full and luscious Pomerol. A most impressive classic.
