 tasting note





















label Château le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol 1993
Colour is a dense, glossy crimson red. There is an incredible mocha coffee and chocolate-covered berry nose to this wine. Beneath are refined Claret aromas of blackcurrant and cedar. It oozes concentration and classy, ripe fruit. On the palate a wonderful depth of rich, creamy, dark plum and chocolate flavour. The tannins are very fine, supporting and adding backbone, and the acicity is moderate which adds to the hedonistic style of the wine. There is enough savouriness to stop this being simply flashy fruit, and a terrific sense of concentration and richness. Lovely balance giving length and purity.

I paid £14.99 ($23US) for this wine just over 4 years ago from Oddbins. If you see it for less than £20 snap it up! (03/00)
