Pomerol, Libournais

Vieux Château Certan

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

1982 vintage. Mid-shoulder fill, fully saturated cork. Not decanted. Tasted after 3 hours open. Light body. Earthy nose. Smooth, lean, integrated flavors gliding along to that 35 second finish. Should be able to hold court in this status for another 5-6 years. 7.6.24. — 18 days ago

Château Larcis Ducasse

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2009



In the nose this Château Larcis Ducasse 2009 offers an inviting and complex bouquet. Primary aromas of ripe blackberries, cassis, and dark cherries are prominent. These are complemented by secondary notes of cedar, tobacco, and a hint of graphite. As the wine opens up, it reveals layers of truffle, leather, and sweet spices such as cinnamon and cloves. This simply is a great nose

In the mouth the palate is rich, full-bodied, and beautifully balanced. The wine displays an impressive structure with silky, well-integrated tannins. Flavors of blackcurrant, plum, and black cherry dominate, supported by nuances of dark chocolate, espresso, and earthy undertones. This is a real treat because it’s so easy drinking.

The finish is long, smooth, and elegant, lingering with notes of dark fruit, vanilla, and a touch of smokiness.

Overall this wine is an exemplary wine from Saint-Émilion, showcasing the best characteristics of the vintage and type of wine, mine kind of a wine 😋. It is a wine of depth, complexity, and refinement, so no regrets here 💪.

Château La Conseillante

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

This was simply too young but in 5-10 years could be amazing. Massive raw fruit and mouth feel...Will be interesting to see how this evolves — 19 days ago

Damn, I still have many fond memories of the 1982 La Conseillante and l’Evangile!! Very jealous!!

Château L'Eglise-Clinet

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Perfect bottle that was probably at its peak. Needed an hour of decanting to unleash the violets and the red fruit in the background. Good and enjoyable but not great. — 25 days ago

Château Clinet

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Lovely second wine from Clinet, black fruit forward with graphite and vegetation following up to a pleasant finish. Drinking quite well now after a half hour open. My new favorite value in Pomerol. — 17 days ago

Château Figeac

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Opened and decanted at least an hour before service; enjoyed over the course of several hours where it held service the entire time. The 2014 pours a deep ruby color with a near opaque core; medium+ viscosity with moderate staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is developing with fabulous notes of cassis, tobacco, purple flowers (a beautiful potpourri actually), iron rich earth, and delightful baking spices. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long and lovely. As a vintage, 2014 is sneaky good and this Figeac is showing so well on this early window. Drink now with patience and through 2054. — 5 days ago
