Critic Notes

The second wine, the 2012 Fugue de Nenin, is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that hit 14.5% natural alcohol. It exhibits lots of plum, mocha and berry fruit, a medium-bodied, lush, silky texture and a hedonistic, fruit-driven style that is ideal for a second wine. ||These may turn out to be the finest Pomerols Jean-Hubert Delon and his team have made to date as the 2012s are better than either the 2009s or 2010s. Wine Advocate.April, 2013

Score: 87-89/100Robert Parker

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Fugue de Nenin lacks complexity on the nose, a touch of balsamic here tincturing the black fruit, but it seems to miss some focus. The palate is medium-bodied with dusty black fruit, moderate acidity, a little smudged, but there is an appealing roundness to its texture. It needs more freshness and substance though. Not bad for a second wine, but it does miss a bit of pizzazz. Tasted January 2016. Oct 2016, www.robertparker.com

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 ...

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 ...

Bordeaux EP 2017 Campaign - Week 4 Update
As expected we had a busy week of releases. Whilst demand was steady for most, a number of releases were in particularly high demand. Chateau Beychevelle, Chateau Clerc Milon and Chateau d’Armailhac all sold out on release, with huge interest, particularly from the Asian market. Closer to home, both the white and red releases from Domaine Chevalier proved popular - ...
