Chateau le Bon Pasteur 2015: Ideal vintage in Pomerol

Michel Rolland’s family owns the Chateau le Bon Pasteur, and this is the chateau that saw the birth and growth of the famous consultant. With a surface area of 6.7 hectares in the Pomerol appellation, it is the smallest but definitely not the least famous Bordeaux appellation. The estate consists of 21 plots on the border of Saint-Emilion, including one located just 200 meters from Petrus. The grape variety is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The vines have an average age of 40-years-old and are planted in gravel-clay and gravel-sand soil.

The 2015 vintage is exceptional for Pomerol. The berry ripeness was perfect at harvest time and the result for this wine was superb. The Chateau le Bon Pasteur 2015 is a gourmet wine, balanced and elegant. The color shows concentration and the rich nose exudes lovely aromas of black fruit mixed with notes of aging: coffee, cocoa and licorice. On the palate, the Chateau le Bon Pasteur 2015 is faithful to Pomerol with fleshiness and warmth balanced with a very lovely freshness and precision. A wine with a lot of potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Bon Pasteur has an expressive nose of crushed red and black currants, black cherries and spice cake with hints of rose petals, dusty soil and tapenade. The medium to full-bodied palate is wonderfully ripe with plush tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and layered.
