reviewsJames Suckling 93-94/100
So much blueberry and black-olive character here with concentration of fruit and powerful yet polished tannins. Chewy and juicy.

The 2019 Bourgneuf was picked from 19 to 30 September and matured in 35% new oak. It has a pretty bouquet, refined and pure with blackberry, briary and touches of orange blossom. This is very well defined, the aromatics do not try to over-reach themselves. The palate is crisp on the entry with crunchy red fruit, tertiary in style, hints of truffle, brine and black pepper towards the finish. There is a "natural swagger" about this Bourgneuf, probably earlier drinking than other Pomerols, yet with breeding and class from the Vayron family. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
An impressive dense core of fruit, this is rich and complex with red and black notes and a touch of spice on the end. Intense and long, with an approach-ability that is quite delightful.
