Spread across just under 2,000 acres in the region of Libourne, in the heart of Bordeaux’s Right Bank, Pomerol is found on a plateau of the Isle River. Its clay soils offer ideal ripening conditions for merlot, the king grape of the region. Cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and malbec are also grown in smaller quantities.
Pomerol wines are celebrated for their finesse, intensity and high calibre. They are seductive when young, yet will only improve with age. Pomerols are recognizable by their distinctive and highly unusual aromas of violet and black truffle.
2015 in Pomerol:
Spotlight on the 2015 vintage: 2015 in Bordeaux started with an unusually mild spring. May, June and July subsequently were warm and dry, allowing the vines to grow rapidly. An even and consistent véraison occurred in early August. Autumn saw cooler, damp weather, helping build aromatic complexity and power in the grapes before harvest. The highly-anticipated vintage promises to be one for the ages.
