Pomerol: Château Gombaude-Guillot 2014
"This delivers a long, lush stream of pure raspberry ganache flavors, flecked with anise and fruitcake notes, all gliding through a silky, suave finish. What you see is what you get, and it's pretty tasty. Drink now through 2026. 1,500 cases made. Score: 90."
James Molesworth - Wine Spectator.
This 8 hectare estate in the heart of Pomerol (next to Trotanoy) was one of the first to convert to organic (from the 2000 vintage) and consistently produces classic, Merlot-dominated wines of grace and elegance at reasonable prices.
A nose of pure red fruit balances supple tannins and bags of concentrated bright, juicy fruit punch. Good acidity gives freshness and makes this Merlot-Cabernet Franc blend approachable relatively young.
