2014 Bourgneuf, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1201189 92 points James Suckling

 Vivid aromas of flowers and raspberries with hints of citrus. Medium to full body and a stone and concrete structure. Needs time to soften. A pretty wine that should be tried in 2021 when the tannins resolve.  (2/2017)

92 points Vinous

 The 2014 Bourgneuf is a very pretty wine. Blood orange, rose petal, sweet tobacco, herbs and spices give it much of its exotic personality. Gracious and medium in body, the 2014 will drink well with minimal cellaring. This is an especially delicate, perfumed style of Pomerol, but there is good underlying depth. (AG)  (2/2017)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 This 22-acre property produces wines dominated by 90% Merlot. That gives ripe juicy red-fruit flavors, rich tannins and density. There is also a strong streak of acidity that shows vividly. The wine will soften over the next few years and give a delicious drink from 2021. (RV)  (4/2017)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Solidly juicy in feel, with lots of plum and blackberry confiture flavors that stay persistent, carried by singed apple wood and charcoal hints while staying fresh and driven through the finish. Best from 2020 through 2030. (JM)  (3/2017)

Showing a lot of wood at this young age, still the nice notes of plums, cherries and exotic spices carry on the palate. It needs to loosen up its tannins which in the next 28 months in barrels will certainly do.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
