Bon Courage Estate

Château Le Bon Pasteur

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Dark, glass-clinging reddish purple with near opaque core. Lush, inviting nose of baked plum and dark berry cobbler. Equally lush, full palate echoes the nose adding juicy red plum, blackberry, and fruit ash. Velvety medium tannins entry to finish. Medium acidity. Lengthy, dark finish. Can't really go wrong with Pomerol, and this wine is further evidence of that. A good solid vintage from the house that put Michel Rolland on the map. Drink now through 2029. — 19 days ago

Ça C'est Bon! Touraine Gamay 2022


A bit harsh but it’s just not for me. Tannic structure is good and nice tartness - alive but just a touch too parching in the end — 3 months ago

Abbaye de Saint Bon Chien 2019

BFM = Brasserie Franches Montagne. This is the Flanders Red Ale. A sour ale.

Possibly the best beer I have ever had?
The nose is dried red apple + dried guava +
Tart fruit on the tongue with a finish of sweet malt and tart cherry juice.
A wonderful acid finish that to me is reminiscent of what you might find in a

Santa Barbara Historic Vineyards Collection Los Alamos Vineyards Chardonnay 2019

Talk about classy (or classic) Chardonnay, don’t matter really, this is both! This is in its own league when it comes to Chard. It’s crisp yet round, bright yet balanced, and acidic yet unctuous. Not old world but not typical Cali Chard. Must try this ABC. Cheers. — 6 months ago

The single vineyard ABC chards and pinots have always been instructive and must-try. R.I.P. Jim.
