Le Grand Chai Pomerol 2014

Merlot based blend

Pomerol is always a treat – a luscious, velvety style of claret that drinks early but can also age beautifully. They tend to be pricey, but this Gold medal 2014 from the Le Chai team scores on gorgeous richness and on price. A real drink-me vintage.

Decanter has described Le Chai au Quai as “a fabulous venture”. It’s our own cellar on the banks of the Dordogne in Castillon. Here, Haut-Brion trained Jean-Marc Sauboua and his team hand finish special parcels of wine selected from top vineyards. We’ve made this charming Pomerol every vintage since 2004, but the 2014 is particularly plump and fruit laden. It first happened thanks to a deal falling through, leaving this outstanding vat ready for the taking. The wine is from a small property with vineyards planted on prime soil, so the quality of the grapes is superb, while a year in fine Taransaud barrels lends real finesse. Lovely now, if you decant it for a couple of hours, and with a long life ahead. Reserve for your finest meat dishes.

Luscious, smooth and decadent with its mouthfilling fruits, mocha, vanilla and toasty oak.
