Bordeaux Red Blend
Chateau Bourgneuf-Vayron Pomerol
WO score is the average of all critic scores for this wine
Showing better than it did from barrel (thankfully), this wine has a nice hint of camphor, damp earth, licorice, truffle and spice box. There is some mulberry and black fruit, and the wine has a certain minerality, but again, it comes across as slightly chunky, muscular and masculine. The tannins argue for giving it 4-5 years of cellaring and drinking it within the following 10-12 years.
Coarse tannins, less than stunning concentration (somewhat surprising for a 2010) and a distinctive earthy, autumnal, vegetative character are found in this medium-bodied, chunky Pomerol. Drink it over the next 7-10 years.
