Red wine

Château Le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol 2017

RRP £318

A successful 2017 for the highly influential Michel Rolland. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the wine characteristically rich and generous; juicy berry fruit to the fore, indulgent oaky tannins, but a neat shard of acidity at its core to confirm and underwrite a seriousness of intent.
