Description

A tremendously balanced Pomerol red wine

The producer

Created in 1920 by a passionate couple, Château Le Bon Pasteur was taken over in 1978 by the famous oenologist Michel Rolland and his brother, who thus took over from their father at the head of this Bordeaux grand cru.

The vineyard

The estate’s 6.6 hectares of vines, located in the heart of the Pomerol appellation, are spread over 23 parcels of the region’s typical terroir and offer fine quality wines. The vineyard, which is on average 40 years old, is managed using sustainable agriculture, which has earned the estate the High Environmental Value certification.

The vintage

The first six months of 2016 were marked by very high rainfall. A few days of good weather at the beginning of June ensured even flowering. Although the summer was hot and particularly dry, the rainy spells on the 13th of September were a lifesaver for the vineyard, boosting the ripening of the grapes. Thereafter, the Indian summer and the good range in temperature between day and night were ideal conditions with regards to refining the ripening process. The harvest took place in very good conditions from the 29th of September to the 20th of October.

The vinification and ageing

The wine is vinified in French oak barrels and aged for 15 to 18 months depending on the year.

The blend

Merlot (80%)

Cabernet Franc (20%).

The tasting

Colour

Dense and deep, the colour is adorned with purple hues.

Nose

Fine and subtle, this wine exhudes elegant fragrances of black fruits, spices and flowers.

Palate

On the palate, the attack is suave, the wine showing sensuality, voluptuousness and freshness. The tannic structure combines precision and balance. This Pomerol wine is delicious, tense and tasty.
