[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Beychevelle St Julien Unreleased - 93-94 - - - -
Hide the tasting notes

Very fine tannins already with a solid core of blackberry and blueberry character. Hints of flowers. Full-bodied, well-integrated and tight, not to mention fresh and long.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Only 52% of the production went into the 2017 Château Beychevelle (they normally shoot for 60%), and the blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc that’s still aging in 60% new oak. This inky purple-colored beauty gives up loads of blue fruits, black cherries, underbrush, and a touch of minerality in a medium to full-bodied, pretty, elegant package that’s very much in the style of the vintage. This estate has been on a serious roll lately, and the 2017 isn’t going to break the trend. Tasted twice.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Bon Pasteur Pomerol Unreleased - 94-95 - - 90-93 -
Hide the tasting notes

This is very impressive for the vintage with a solid core of focused fruit and refined tannins. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a pretty finish. Shows length.

Score: 94 - 95 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Ripe and friendly in feel, with round, forward blackberry compote notes. Offers anise and ganache details, showing light brambly grip and good energy.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Possessing a big, sweet nose of plums, blueberries, incense, and exotic flowers, the 2017 Le Bon Pasteur hits the palate with a medium-bodied, plush, ripe, sexy style that’s encountered far too rarely in the vintage. With tons of texture, excellent purity of fruit, and a good finish, it’s one of the most successful in the vintage.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Bourgneuf Pomerol Unreleased - 91-92 - - 91-94 -
Hide the tasting notes

A solid Pomerol for the vintage with dark chocolate, dark berries and round and ripe tannins. Medium to full body and a fresh finish.

Score: 91 - 92 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Juicy and friendly, delivering bright cassis and raspberry coulis flavors laced with savory and mineral notes. The fruit drives nicely through the finish, which is extended by fresh acidity.

Score: 91 - 94 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The 2017 Château Bourgneuf is made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that's all from the 9 hectares of gravel, clay, iron-rich soils of the estate. Inky purple-colored with gorgeous notes of cassis, violets, gravelly minerality, and herbal/underbrush nuances, this beauty is medium to full-bodied, has ripe, building tannin, solid mid-palate depth, and a great finish. It's a beautiful, elegant, classy Pomerol that’s going to keep for 15+ years.

Score: 90 - 92 Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com
