A fleshy, full-throttle wine with lots of mocha, kirsch, mulberry, and plum, their 2010 displays a smorgasbord of aromas, a full-bodied mouthfeel, terrific purity, density and even a hint of lead pencil shavings and subtle toasty oak. If you want to understand the genius of the Rollands, there is no better example than looking at their own wine from this property in Pomerol. The tannins are present, but not that significant, thus I tend to think the wine will come into its own in 4-5 years and last for 20 or more.||Constantly in the spotlight as the globe-trotting wine-making gurus of Libourne, Michel and Dany Rolland may not have the best terroir in Pomerol at their flagship estate, Bon Pasteur, but through a very strict selection, they exploit it beautifully. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol and at negoçiants. The Le Bon Pasteur 2010 has a very pure bouquet with just a hint of anis, tightly wound at first but opening nicely in the glass with hints of orange-blossom. The palate is very difficult to assess at the moment with very bold tannins, very grippy and assertive. Affording the sample some aeration, it develops a touch of spice and dried herbs towards the finish. Sultry and brooding, this will demand several years ageing before it reaches its plateau but I like this style of Bon Pasteur. Look out for the name, Michel Rolland. I think he’ll be big. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Quite ripe, with slightly heady blueberry, fig paste and macerated currant fruit liberally laced with black tea, anise and toast. This has length, but verges on top-heavy. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Worked and sweet and open already. Not very refreshing. And the oak is a bit too present. Sickly. jancisrobinson.com

Bon Pasteur - This is the home estate of Michel Rolland. The wine opens with black cherry, coffee, black raspberry and 5 spice aromas which lead to a round, soft, sweet, licorice, espresso and dark cherry filled Pomerol. winecellarinsider.com

This is one of the most elegant Pomerols from the 2010 vintage. The generous, ripe tannins are beautifully textured and lifts the violet, plum and blackberry flavours. It has a very attractive aromatic profile with violets and ripe fruit notes. Fairly long length. asianpalate.com
