2014 Bourgneuf, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)
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.
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)
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)
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)
