2015 Maillet, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1255402 96 points James Suckling

 A full and layered red with blackberry, blueberry and stone character. Some black tea, too. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. A big and muscular wine with classic Pomerol might.  (2/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Maillet has ripe black cherries and raspberry coulis on the nose, nicely defined, not complex but nicely focused. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, tarry black fruit and quite saline toward the finish. This is an interesting and characterful Maillet that should age with style. (NM)  (2/2018)

Wine Spectator

 Plush, with friendly plum and blackberry compote notes, a flash of anise and a well-integrated apple wood spine. Harmonious and built for near-term consumption. (Web only, 2018) (JM)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
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.
