Critic Notes

The 2016 De Chambrun has a feisty bouquet with lively black cherries, blueberry and red cherry fruit, the oak nicely integrated and lending focus. The palate is sweet on the entry with chewy tannin. There is part of me that thinks this is just a little overdone towards the finish, where I was seeking more tension and delineation. Maybe that will develop during barrel maturation? This is a good Lalande de Pomerol, but it just needs to temper its nascent enthusiasm. Apr 2017, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2020-2032

A little lean now but there’s very good fruit with firm tannins here. Tangy acidity and a medium finish. Needs a little more fruit on the center palate to be outstanding. Wait and see. Mar 2017, www.jamessuckling.com

A little skinny and dull on the end. Fast fade.  Apr 2017, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2020-2025

The 2016 de Chambrun is plump, juicy and nicely balanced, all qualities that make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. The 2016 is straightforward, but also quite tasty. Apr 2017, www.vinous.com

2018 En Primeur Release of Pomerol's Chateau Belle-Brise
The 2018 Bordeaux En Primeur campaign reached new heights this week with the surprise release of one of Saint-Emilion’s top estates - Chateau Angelus. As well as offering a pleasing reduction in price versus their last two vintages, this welcome surprise set the tone for potentially one of the most exciting En Primeur campaigns ever. Last week our first releases ...

Mark my words here: Pichon-Lalande is an estate to watch. The terroir here and its potential has never been in question.  The 1996 is praised by many as being of first growth quality, and anyone lucky enough to own or have drunk the 1982 will tell you that it is about as good a bottle of claret as one could ...

Blending Masterclass at Chateau Pichon Lalande
Blending is an art form and remains rarely understood amongst us normal wine enthusiasts. The more one thinks about the process and the many variables the more difficult it seems to contemplate. The choices seem endless and the more one tastes the more confusing it seems to get! How can you tell that a certain combination is better than another? ...

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 ...
