Chateau Le Bon Pasteur 2005
|Brand||Chateau Le Bon Pasteur|
A beautiful wine from Dany and Michel Rolland, this 2005 is surprisingly concentrated and powerful – more so than usual. Deep ruby/purple, with plenty of black cherry and cassis fruit, licorice and a touch of caramel, this wine is still full, youthful, and set for another 15-20 years of longevity. This is a beauty and one of their strongest efforts in the first decade of the 21st century. For a terroir considered well below Pomerol’s superstars, this wine is a major overachiever.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
Very grapey on the nose, with coffee, blackberry and toasty oak. Full-bodied, soft and velvety, with plenty of fruit and milk chocolate aftertaste. A juicy young red.
