K&L Notes

A great example of the unique power of Pomerol. Winemaker Alain Moueix runs Château Mazeyres strictly along biodynamic principals, incorporating green growth between vine rows and encouraging fauna in the area. The winemaking follows the same principals of “less is more” and aims to direct and craft what is already existent in the fruit. Although they do use some French oak in the élévage, the primary vessels are neutral concrete and stainless steel. The resultant wine beautifully showcases the powerful smooth and dark fruit of Pomerol, well balanced by a classical structure with nicely integrated tannin. With the generous nature of the 2015 vintage coming into play, this wine is open and soft right off the bat. It’s highly tempting to drink it right now, but we expect great things of this wine down the line. A knockout Bordeaux for less than $30.

We tasted this wine in May and here it is-a perfect club wine-soft, fruity, and forward. A food friendly wine, packed full of delicious, dark berry fruits and enveloped by a velvety texture. These 2015 Pomerols are like silk and this one is less than $30. Bio-dynamic also
Drink from 2018 to 2028

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.
