Château Bourgneuf

Château Bourgneuf 2015

Wine Spectator - James Molesworth - March 31, 2018

92 Points "Dark and saturated with fig flavors, showing extra boysenberry and black currant compote notes. Ganache and tobacco accents fill in the finish, giving this a slightly gutsy profile. Should mellow with cellaring, as the fruit is hedonistic. Best from 2020 through 2030."

Château Bourgneuf 2014 - James Suckling - February 13, 2017

92 Points "Vivid aromas of flowers and raspberries with hints of citrus. Medium to full body and a stone and concrete structure. Needs time to soften. A pretty wine that should be tried in 2021 when the tannins resolve."

Wine Spectator - James Molesworth - March 31, 2013

93 Points "This has a dark, slightly chewy edge for now, but the core of crushed plum, blackberry and boysenberry fruit should absorb that with cellaring. Dark ganache and graphite frame the finish, which features a racy, acidic spine. Should unfurl nicely with age. Best from 2015 through 2025. - James Suckling - February 18, 2013

94 Points "Really attractive nose with wild strawberries, raspberries and roses petals. Dark plums and red cherries with some sweet tobacco and black pepper. Full-bodied and intensely juicy on the palate with velvety tannins, and a beautiful finish with licorice and some vanilla from the new wood. So attractive now but leave it alone for four or five years."

Wine Journal - Neal Martin - December 20, 2011

90 Points "Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol. Understated elegant bouquet with crisp red fruits, cassis and a touch of dark plum with well-integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with a little hardness on the entry, firm grip, quite a masculine Pomerol that deserves some ageing. Saline finish."

Wine Enthusiast - Roger Voss - February 01, 2013

90 Points "This is a solid, angular wine, both its structure and its fruit coming together well. It has an underlying new-wood character that is powerful and rich. The tannins taste sweet and are already softening."

Wine Spectator - James Molesworth - March 31, 2012

91 Points "This is all rounded, enticing flesh, with succulent boysenberry, cherry preserves, blackberry and fig notes melded together and supported by subtle spice and anise shadings through the finish. Ready to go, but with the stuffing to linger for a while in the cellar. Drink now through 2021." - James Suckling - February 14, 2012

92 Points "A juicy wine with plum and chocolate character. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and fruity finish. Subtle and delicious already."
