Berry Bros. & Rudd Berry’s Own Selection Pomerol 2009

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Vintage: 2009
Type: Red Bordeaux Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – Pomerol – Château Feytit-Clinet

Another excellent wine Berry’s. The Pomerol is full of blackberries and dark fruit with a full body and excellent finish.  Good value for money and will age well for a few more years.

Technical Review

Appearance
Deep purple

Nose
Clean, pronounced notes of blackberries, black fruits a bit of plum and spice

Palate
Dry, medium acidity, high tannins, full body with lots of black fruit and a bit of oak.  Medium finish

Conclusion
Very good especially for the price point

Berry Bros. & Rudd Berry’s Own Selection – St. Estèphe 2006

Monday, April 25th, 2011

Vintage: 2006
Type: Bordeaux Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – St. Estèphe

This wine was tasted during a tasting of Bordeaux over the holidays covering two wines from the Right and Left Banks. I found this Bordeaux a bit overpowering to drink by itself — it is definitely a food claret best served with red meat.  Lots of dark berries, black fruit and spice, hints of tobacco and it will need decanting at the moment to enjoy (or hold on to it for another 4-5 years).

Berry Bros. & Rudd Berry’s Own Selection – Pomerol 2008

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

Vintage: 2008
Type: Bordeaux Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – Pomerol

This wine was tasted during a tasting of Bordeaux over the holidays covering two wines from the Right and Left Banks.  This wine was the pick of the evening, full berries and hints of cassis, smooth velvety tannins with an long elegant finish.   Drink now, with a bit of decanting or for another few years.

Berry Bros. & Rudd Berry’s Own Selection – St. Émilion 2008

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Vintage: 2008
Type: Bordeaux Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – St. Émilion

This wine was tasted during a tasting of Bordeaux over the holidays covering two wines from the Right and Left Banks.  I found this wine not quite as nice as the Pomerol or the Pauillac, though it was still excellent, well worked tannins and a classic earthy Bordeaux finish.  This wine will happily age for a few more years.

Berry Bros. & Rudd Berry’s Own Selection – Pauillac 2008

Monday, April 11th, 2011

Vintage: 2008
Type: Bordeaux Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – Pauillac

This wine was tasted during a tasting of Bordeaux over the holidays covering two wines from the Right and Left Banks.  This was one of my favourites, full of blackcurrants and with a long finish.  Very good value-for-money Pauillac.
