A terrific success from the well-known estate of Bordeaux’s famed oenologists Dany and Michel Rolland, the 2001 Bon Pasteur is a super effort for the vintage. Deep plum/purple to the rim, with a sumptuous nose of barbecue spices, smoke, black cherries, mocha, and spice box, this opulent, medium to full-bodied, rich red reveals amazing extract and intensity for a wine from this vintage. Its structure and size suggests 2-3 years of cellaring is warranted.
Winespectator / James Suckling (91)
Ripe and smoky, with lots going on in the glass. Decadent. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long vanilla, berry and chocolate aftertaste. A beauty. This is consulting enologist Michel Rolland's own estate
