Critic Notes

Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol. A deep purple/garnet colour, the Bellegrave ’10 has a refined, very pure bouquet with dark berries, boysenberry, crushed stone and just a touch of violet. Good definition and poise, though tightly coiled at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy entry, soft supple tannins, quite minerally on the finish where the Cabernet Franc takes over and says: I’m in charge. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Score: 90-92/100Neal Martin

A delicious Pomerol which is approachable in its youth but will keep for at least a decade. The flavours are lively and lifted with hints of cassis and plums. A well balanced wine with firm, ripe tannins. Fairly long finish. Jeannie Cho Lee MW asianpalate.com

Score: 88-90/100Jeannie Cho Lee MW

Very rich and sweet. But with good energy and not too drying. Flatteringly sweet. Dry end. Not that intense.

Score: 16-/20Jancis Robinson

Pomerol: Small but Beautiful
Bordeaux: the foundation of any cellar.  The greatest, and most famous wine producing region in the world.  The heart of fine wine production.  These are all arguable.  And, conveniently, there is rather a lot of it.  The average left bank chateau will have an annual production of up to 20,000 cases per year, and barrel cellars the size of football ...

Pomerol: A Tale of Two Vintages
We report from a visit by Pomerol Séduction, an organisation promoting eight top wines from the iconic Right Bank appellation in Bordeaux. On the tasting table were Bordeaux 2012s and 2015s - two very different vintages that both have stories to tell. As the scramble for this year’s En Primeur offerings from Bordeaux reached its climax last week, the FINE+RARE Team saw ...

A Pomerol Evening with Neal Martin
On Wednesday night we were privileged to have the company of Neal Martin at a small dinner in the private room of the brilliant Chez Bruce. The theme was, of course, Pomerol and Neal’s recently published book on the region. Wine and food first. The aim of the wine selection was to be eclectic rather than simply aiming for the ...
