2010 Le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol

SKU #1136353 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark What a wine. Cool purple fruit at first with plums, coffee and red peppercorns. Very elegant on the palate opening up with a great texture and finesse. Deep and profound yet still so harmonious. Hazelnut and chocolate. It comes together beautifully. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Bon Pasteur leaps from the glass with scents of blackberry compote, plum preserves and spiced blueberries plus hints of chocolate mint and pencil lead. Medium-bodied, the palate is taut, firm and chewy with plenty of expressive black and blue fruit layers on the long finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good dark red. Entrancing perfume of black raspberry, mulberry, flowers, mocha and spices. Dense, silky and savory, showing a lush texture and flamboyant early personality to the flavors of raspberry, mocha, graphite, sweet spices and underbrush. Spreads out impressively on the seriously structured back end, finishing with substantial but ripe and fine-grained tannins. This has the balance and energy to age nicely but will hardly hurt your teeth if you'd like to try a bottle now. A superb vintage for the home property of Michel and Dany Rolland. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Firm while also rounded, very rich Merlot spice and blackberry character. There are hugely dense, extracted tannins, with a final dark fruit character. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Juicy and fresh, offering a friendly core of damson plum, raspberry and black cherry, with plenty of sweet toasty vanilla bean and licorice notes. A caressing, polished structure guides the finish. Rather forward in the end. For fans of the style. Drink now through 2020. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very obvious perfume - all spicy and aromatic. Open-knit palate, firm but accessible. Opulent. 17/20 points. Inner quote mark (11/2012)

K&L Notes

95 points Robert Parker in Wine Advocate: "A fleshy, full-throttle wine with lots of mocha, kirsch, mulberry, and plum, their 2010 displays a smorgasbord of aromas, a full-bodied mouthfeel, terrific purity, density and even a hint of lead pencil shavings and subtle toasty oak. If you want to understand the genius of the Rollands, there is no better example than looking at their own wine from this property in Pomerol. The tannins are present, but not that significant, thus I tend to think the wine will come into its own in 4-5 years and last for 20 or more." (2/2013)
