Château Tour Maillet Pomerol 2019
- Textured, savoury
This is classic Pomerol here. Full of power but driven by fruit, it opens with blackberry and black cherry. There’s floral notes as well, along with cassis, graphite and spice from the 50% new oak. You’ll find refinement, elegance and grace in the wine, one that opens up nicely with a bit of air. This is that rare Bordeaux that can be enjoyed now, but will certainly age wonderfully for up to two decades. Check out Jeb Dunnuck’s beautifully written review below.
“Pure, modern notes of cassis, spicy oak, leaf pencil, and dried violets emerge from the 2019 Château Tour Maillet (Lagardere). Medium to full-bodied, this beauty has a wonderfully pure, elegant texture, nicely integrated acidity, and outstanding length. It's in the same class as the 2018 and is a beautiful wine in the making.”
