2016 Bourgneuf, Pomerol

SKU #1440606 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2016 Bourgneuf is composed of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. Medium garnet-purple colored, it opens with very pretty notions of crushed red cherries, blackberry pie, wild blueberries and potpourri plus hints of tapenade, camphor and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a great intensity of perfumed black fruits, framed by rounded tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and perfumed. (LPB)  (11/2018)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

 A dense wine with ripe tannins. The fruit is there, although buried in the firm structure. It's good for the long term. (RV)  (4/2017)

93 points Decanter

 This was extremely subdued when tasted at en primeur, but the way it's nudging forward is extremely promising. Lush fruit appears on the attack and right on through the-mid palate, before you are pulled up hard on the finish by the strength of the tannins, suggesting a long life ahead and a patient wait before it's fully ready. Things are softened by a creamy caramel note coming in as things open in the glass, which keeps you enjoyably engaged with the wine. (JA)  (10/2018)

93 points James Suckling

 Very plush and attractive tannin texture and a wealth of rich dark plums and berries, make this an attractive wine for the vintage. Great focus and balance. Try from 2022.  (1/2019)

93 points Vinous

 The 2016 Bourgneuf needs a lot of coaxing from the glass, eventually offering blackberry, briar and light cedar aromas. The medium-bodied palate displays grainy tannins and gentle grip. There is plenty of freshness and vitality here, the 15% Cabernet Franc lending a little spice toward the persistent finish. This is one of the best Bourgneuf wines I have encountered in recent years.

92 points Wine Spectator

 Fleshy, round and brimming with succulent cassis, raspberry and cherry compote flavors, delivering a big ball of fruit without being top-heavy, as light apple wood, rooibos tea and anise notes add cut and range on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2034. (JM)  (3/2019)

What an eloquent silky wine this is! Filled with sweet but elegant soft fruits. Dark and plush, meaty, hefty in texture but velvety on the palate. It is a magical wine that pleased all of us when we tried it and we can tell you with confidence to do so as well.
