Thursday, May 10th, 2012

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.

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.

Clos Payrol 2006

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

Vintage: 2006
Type: Bordeaux
Country: France – Bordeaux – Pomerol

This is one of the best wines that I have ever had the pleasure to taste. Knowing that the wine would require some time to breathe, I decanted the bottle and let sit for several hours. To get a sense of what was in store, I had a tiny taste of the wine after it was decanted: pure pleasure. The tasting left my mouth watering for more, though I forced myself to wait.

The nose was dark and closed – even after being left to breathe. Classic Pomerol herb-tinged, caramel, and sweet black cherry notes intermixed with mocha and spice box. Tannic with a good level of acidity, many levels of complexity, full body flavours of cherries and plums.

Payrol is right next door to Petrus, a small vineyard – much like Petrus and is ideally placed in Pomerol. flavours of berry and terroir. Quite young, but drinking well. This wine can certainly be set down for another 10+ years. Very highly recommended!

Clos René 1998

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Vintage: 1998
Type: Bordeaux
Country: France – Bordeaux – Pomerol

Still has lovely tones of florals and earth. Colour still deep red with fading at the edge. Flavours of plum and berries with a long finish. Drinking well now and it had the tannins for keeping a bit longer.
