Hide the tasting notes

75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc. Expressive black stone fruit nose. Glossy mouthfeel, subtle concentration with a cool, clean finish and no hard edges.

Score: 91 - 93 Albany Vintners

Tight and linear on the palate with a lovely depth of fruit and polished tannins. Medium to full body and an attractive, fine-grained texture.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Dark purple. Very heady and rich on the nose. Super-luscious and easy to like with the richness of the appellation but not too much sweetness and certainly no oak or alcohol in evidence. Just not especially long but a decent effort.

Score: 16 - 17 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2023-2037

Juicy, with raspberry, blueberry and boysenberry pâte de fruit notes coursing through. Spice hints on the finish add range while energetic acidity keeps it all fresh. Delicious.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

This is the second vintage under new owners (Galleries Lafayette family), with Fabien Tetgien of Smith Haut Lafitte overseeing the winemaking and Vincent Priou heading up the team in Pomerol full time. This is an extremely promising wine, with damsons, graphite, and touches of chocolate and exotic spices, while the tannins are soft and plush even at this early stage. A sexy, polished wine that delivers on the vintage. 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc.

Score: 92 Decanter Maturity: 2025-2040

[Add to shopping basket] Bourgneuf NEW Pomerol £372 - - - 92-93 16-17 90-93 -
Hide the tasting notes

Linear and racy with pretty berry and blackberry character and hints of walnuts. Medium to full body and firm tannins. Shows intensity and class.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Deep purplish crimson. Lifted nose and really polished. Less dense than some. Elegant almost1! (16.5+ Points)

Score: 16 - 17 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2024-2040

There's a solid fleshy feel here, with plum and blackberry compote notes backed by a good dose of roasted apple wood and licorice root flavors. A little on the muscular side, but it’s a big ball of fruit and has the freshness of the vintage too.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The Vayron family is in charge here, and straight off the nose you know you are in quality wine territory. This is extremely subdued, a little more than I expected, with ground coffee beans and crushed blackberries that open up to reveal a luscious quality to the fruit. Restrained power from the 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc blend.

Score: 92 Decanter Maturity: 2027-2050

A juicy and fruity red that shows reserve and structure. Full body, polished and chewy tannins and a long finish. Big wine for the vintage. Serious… again!

Score: 94 - 95 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Big and bold with pinched sweetness on the end but a neat, dry finish.

Score: 16 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2027

Hide the tasting notes

This is really powerful with big tannins and strong acidity. Full and intense. A wine for long-term aging yet one that offers accessibility at the same time. This estate is on a roll now.

Score: 97 - 98 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Dark crimson. Particularly rich, curranty nose. Really quite intense. And then on the palate it's all freshness and light. Should be a long-distance runner. Lots of sinew. (17+ Points)

Score: 17 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2026-2044

Lovely plum cake and melted licorice flavors lead the way, backed by plum and cherry compote notes. Fruit-forward, with just a light woodsy hint for spine, while the finish lets perfumy tea and floral accents hang.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Clinet Pomerol Unreleased - - 95-97 94-95 16 94-97 -
Hide the tasting notes

90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Lovely quality of fresh forest fruits, quite complex with floral and spicy notes also. Creamy and full in the mouth, quite voluptuous with high but fine grained tannins leading to the long finish.

Score: 95 - 97 Albany Vintners

The linear character to this is so impressive with beautiful blackberries and blueberries. Crushed stones and minerals. Medium to full body. Very pretty.

Score: 94 - 95 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Blackish crimson. Headily sweet and gamey on the nose with dark, purple-fruit aromas and then this sample went dead on me on the palate. Sucked out the saliva. Very drying end. Awkward, stodgy finish. Not for me. Unripe phenolics.

Score: 16 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2024-2036

Dark in profile, with plum, blackberry and black currant fruit melded together, while wood spice and bramble hints run along the edges. Plenty of depth and length here, with lively tobacco and tar notes on the finish. This fleshes out with air too. Impressive, in the richer style.

Score: 94 - 97 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The colour on this is deep and inky and a blast of cassis and black cherry fruit greets you on the nose. It has undeniable oak impact, but also a lovely lift that carries right through the palate, and that incredible Clinet precision. A fantastic 2016, not as exuberant as 2015 but showing the quality of the vintage where even the big-shouldered wines have a stunning lift, and a feeling of an invisible gossamer curtain holding them in place. Not a hedonist's vintage like 2009 or 2015, but cerebral in the style of 2001 and 2010. Strong coffee and grilled caramel on the finish.

Score: 97 Decanter Maturity: 2027-2050
