2018 Le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1415145 96-97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a wonderful Le Bon Pasteur with incredibly silky tannins that fill the mouth. It’s full-bodied yet ever so agile and bright. The tannins build at the end, as is the case in other top wines of the vintage. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Bon Pasteur offers up expressive notions of baked red and black cherries, mulberries and warm blueberries with hints of licorice, chocolate box and menthol. The full-bodied palate has great freshness with firm, ripe, rounded tannins and bags of juicy fruit, finishing long with a minty kick. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2018 Château Le Bon Pasteur comes from the home estate of renowned oenologist Michel Rolland and is a Merlot-dominated blend (there’s normally a splash of Cabernet Franc) brought up in plenty of new barrels. This deep purple-colored beauty offers a medium to full-bodied, seamless, elegant style as well as classic Pomerol notes of ripe black and blue fruits, damp earth and chocolate. Slightly more elegant than normal, yet with beautiful purity and fine tannins, give bottles a 2-4 years bottle age and it should last for 15-20 years. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Le Bon Pasteur has a very pure bouquet with crushed violet and iris scents infusing the black cherry and raspberry fruit. There is a citrus quality to the aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and more grip than I expected thanks to the structure on the finish. The acidity is well judged with a touch of black pepper on the aftertaste. Very promising but it will require some bottle ageing. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is very easy to love with a generous fruit structure combining blackberry with wisps of chocolate and damson. It might get tiring after a glass or so because this leans on the side of sweetness but still, though plentiful the tannins are so soft and air-brushed it’s hard not to admire. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
