Tasting Notes

The 2021 Bourgneuf is a very pretty and promising wine. Naturally, the 2021 doesn’t have the richness of recent previous editions, but it largely compensates for that with its energy and focus. Hints of red berry fruit, orange peel, cinnamon and crushed rocks lift the finish in this stylish, mid-weight Pomerol. Bourgneuf has been one of Pomerol's under the radar gems for years. The 2021 is a bit understated at the moment, even for this wine. Let's see what happens. Tasted two times.

Score: 89 - 91

The 2021 Bourgneuf was picked September 27 to October 4. It has an attractive nose with bright black cherry and wild strawberry fruit and fine mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit laced with tobacco and thyme, building nicely toward a cohesive, sappy finish. The 2021 continues a fine run for this Pomerol estate.

Score: 91 - 93

Neal Martin, Maturity: 2025 - 2040 01 May 2022

Very fine tannins with plum, currant and berry character. Medium body. Integrated and polished texture. Fine finish.

Score: 92 - 93

James Suckling, 01 May 2022

Aromas of sweet cherries, plums, petals and warm spices introduce the 2021 Bourgneuf, a medium to full-bodied, supple and charming wine built around lively acids and fine, powdery tannins.

Score: 88 - 90

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 29 April 2022

Cheerful ruby red colour. Fresh acidities but plump red fruits to accompany. Certainly a fresher expression of Bourgeneuf than in the last few years, but it has Pomerol signature and balance, and is well constructed, where you can see it will smooth out further over ageing. Charming, medium term drinking. Owned by the Vayron family. Tasted twice.

Score: 92

Jane Anson, Jane Anson Inside Bordeaux, 07 April 2022

The deep purple-hued 2021 Château Bourgneuf should be outstanding, and I love its purity of fruit. Assorted red and black fruits, cedar, tobacco, iron, and leafy herbs give way to a medium-bodied, nicely balanced, concentrated Pomerol that's going to shine for 15 years or more. It shows the style of the vintage in its almost mid-weight, pretty, floral style, yet this is rock-solid.

Score: 90 - 92
