La Chenade, Lalande de Pomerol 2016

Les Cruzelles, Lalande de Pomerol 2016
90% Merlot,  10% Cabernet Franc
Grown on gravel over clay subsoil this is a dense, vibrant purple black, semi-opaque with a nose of sweet, slightly twisted black fruit, some fumey, tarry notes too, leading to a palate of big black fruit, markedly more intense than La Chenade, rich and layered, much more complex with very supple tannins behind and really pretty black fruit, intense and forward-looking to a deliciously long, savoury, evolving finish.

Château la Conseillante, Pomerol 2016
Price in 2010: £1,770; price in 2015: £1,230
"The 2016 La Conseillante is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc picked from 22 September to 13 October and 12-17 October at 39.5 hectoliters per hectare. Winemaker Marielle Cazaux told me that there is 13.8% alcohol, nearly one degree less than in 2015, with a pH of 3.65 and it is matured in 70% new oak. This has a succinct bouquet that is stylistically not that far removed from its neighbor Vieux Château Certan: detailed and understated at first with scents of blackberry, wild hedgerow and a touch of pressed flowers. The palate is very well balanced with a fine backbone, but what really marks out this La Conseillante is the salinity that comes through on the second half. It exerts a gentle grip in the mouth, reveals a little spiciness towards the finish whereupon it gently fans out, leaving a touch of black pepper on the saline aftertaste. This is a classic La Conseillante and the best since the majestic 2010. Similar to that vintage, it will require several years in bottle, but it will be well worth the wait." Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

Château Eglise Clinet, Pomerol 2016 (6 per case)
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
Black red, opaque, with deep, dense black fruit on the nose, big toasty blackcurrant notes, rich and spiced, cedary yet with racy fruit too, very alluring yet very restrained. Massive black fruit on the palate, spiced, layered and rich, with big smoky wood spice, some oriental notes too, musky and fabulous, really rich and intense with hints of dusty cocoa, rich spiced and distant Morello cherries on the finish. Needs lots of time to meld. Drink 2027-2045+++

Petite Eglise, Pomerol 2016 (6 per case)
100% Merlot
Pale red black, not intense, with a fresh red berry nose, some spice, but tight and not giving much away; sweet and tarry too leading to a big black fruit palate, again slightly savoury, smooth black fruit with huge tannins almost totally masked by the fruit, soft and supple. Deceptively approachable! Rich with hints of cocoa on the finish, spiced and long. Drink 2026-2040

Château l’Evangile, Pomerol 2016 (6 per case)
Price in 2010: £1,062; price in 2015: £795
92% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc
Dense purple black with a fabulous nose of spiced black fruits, very ripe (but not overripe), rich and intense, some crème pâtissière notes and a hint of nutmeg and violets, really alluring. On the palate intense rich smooth black fruits, savoury and almost saline, cooked black fruits with big wood spice and substantial yet supple tannins, spiced and almost creamed. The tannins really only show themselves on the finish which is creamed, spiced and long. Fabulous wine. Drink 2022-2045

price in 2015: £295

Deep dense purple black, with a nose perfumed with roses, red flowers and savoury black fruits – mulberry – with some distant spice and notes of cedar.

Great wine! Drink 2023-2032

85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc
Deep, semi-opaque black with a penetrating nose of grilled, toasty, smoky black fruits – mulberry, blackcurrant. Soft, supple, intense black fruit on the palate, very Cabernet in style, crunchy and juicy yet smooth and rich; as befits the Moueix style, this is not a blockbuster but remains incredibly elegant and smooth to a long, ripe, evolving finish, alluring and persistent. Delicious. Drink 2028-2040

91% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc
Dense, semi-opaque black to the rim with a nose of vibrant, primary black fruits – blackcurrant, sloe – with some savoury notes too, quite restrained. Sweet, intense, fresh black fruits on the palate, dense and ripe, very smooth and creamed with substantial tannins behind, spice and grilled but, again, not opulent – this is very fine indeed with a substantial, evolving finish with hints of cedar to the end.

75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc

Deep red black with tight black fruits on the nose, thick and layered, inky and rich, leading to an equally inky black fruit palate, some floral notes and a distant hint of underbrush, dense and layered right to the finish with substantial, supple tannins only just visible behind the fruit.
