“A tight and silky red with lovely blackberry and walnut shell character.
Full body, firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Gorgeous balance.” 93-94 points
Bordeaux expert, James Suckling
2015 is the Bordeaux vintage to have in your wine rack, thanks to an ideal growing season that yielded wonderfully ripe fruit (all the winemakers we’ve talked to and work with are ravingabout the quality, saying it’s the best year for them since storied 2010!). And as Master of Wine Jancis Robinson says, “Bordeaux lovers will certainly want to have some 2015s in their cellars.”
But for many of the high-end bottles, you really will have to move quickly … especially with this luxurious Pomerol.
Not to be confused with the Château Lagrange of Saint-Julien, this stunning Right Bank estate has been owned since 1953 by the Moueix family (formerly behind Château Pétrus).Situated on the famed Pomerol plateau, right next to the village church, this acclaimed property is known for producing rich, powerful wines. The 2015, comprising mostly plum-rich Merlot with a dash of floral Cab Franc, does not disappoint. Silky, long, and one seriously impressive red for a special occasion.
Jancis Robinson has dubbed Pomerol “the undoubted right bank star of 2015,” so our short supply of cases are set to sell out fast.
