2017 Bourgneuf, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1356614 91-94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Juicy and friendly, delivering bright cassis and raspberry coulis flavors laced with savory and mineral notes. The fruit drives nicely through the finish, which is extended by fresh acidity. (JM) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A final blend of 90% Merlot with 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Bourgneuf is deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of red and black plums, cassis and black soil with hints of cigar box and wild thyme. Medium-bodied, fine-grained and refreshing in the mouth with beautiful fruit and earth layers, it finishes with a fragrant lift. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark From 9ha of gravel and clay soils, this is a meaty, rich and chewy Pomerol that absolutely works. It has great tannic structure with give and pliability, full of rich black fruits, cassis and raspberry notes, and pulled along by slatey minerality. It has real texture, even though yet again you can tell the fruit flirts with the fresher end of ripeness. Still, this has huge potential, should age well, and is extremely well-handled. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A pretty combination of blackberries, fresh herbs and lemon rind on the nose lead to a medium body, firm and silky palate and a tangy finish. Freshness and energy to this. Not overdone. Drink in 2023. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Bourgneuf has really gained in density over the course of its élevage, while remaining as restrained and understated as it always is. Pliant, silky and wonderfully nuanced with lovely aromatic top notes, Bourgneuf is one the undiscovered jewels in Pomerol - and in Bordeaux more broadly. Expressive floral and savory notes add aromatic dimension but in 2017, Bourgenuf stands out for its textural depth and resonance, both of which are pronounced to a degree I have not seen previously. I would give the 2017 a few years in bottle to soften. It is such a gorgeous wine. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chateau Bourgneuf is a more powerful Pomerol in the vintage, offering lots of dark, chocolaty fruit as well as classic Pomerol notes of damp earth, spice, and tobacco leaf. Elegant, medium to full-bodied, nicely textured, and with present yet ripe tannins, it's a beautiful wine that's going to round into form with just a few years of bottle age and drink nicely for over a decade. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, aged in 35% new French oak. Stephane Toutoudji, who works with Thomas Duclos, also consults here. Inner quote mark (2/2020)
