Super Merlot Tasting

 

1975 Chateau Trotanoy Pomerol
Price: $495.00    Your Price: $420.75
Quantity in Stock: 8


1982 Vieux Château Certan Pomerol
Price: $375.00    Your Price: $318.75
Quantity in Stock: 20

(93 points) Not yet fully mature, this wine reveals some amber at the edge as well as a complex, intoxicating nose of cedar, licorice, spice box, black currants, and cherries. While medium to full-bodied with sweet tannins, and beautiful concentration, it appears to me that more recent vintages are stronger and denser than the 1982. Nevertheless, it is a beauty that can be drunk now and over the next 15-16 years. (6/2009) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 

1982 Chateau L'Evangile Pomerol
Price: $695.00    Your Price: $590.75
Quantity in Stock: 19

(95 Points) "Dark plum-colored with purple nuances, this complex 1982 reveals notions of cedar, allspice, black raspberries, blackberries, and currants. Expansive on the palate, with superb density, low acidity, full body, and a juicy, fat, mouth-staining mid-palate, this youthful Pomerol is approaching full maturity. Powerful and concentrated, it will evolve effortlessly for another 15-20 years."  Wine Advocate # 129, June 2000

 

1995 Chateau L'Evangile Pomerol Magnum
Price: $495.00    Your Price: $420.75
Quantity in Stock: 5

 

1995 Chateau Lafleur Pomerol
Price: $815.00    Sale Price: $595.00
Quantity in Stock: 12

(93 points) This is an awesome Lafleur, but it is also an amazingly backward, tannic monster that will need more cellaring than any Medoc in this vintage. The wine boasts an opaque black/purple color, as well as a closed but promising nose that represents the essence of blackberry, raspberry, and cherry fruit. Intertwined with those aromas is the tell-tale mineral terroir of Lafleur, full body, blistering dry, astringent tannin, and a layered, weighty feel on the palate. This is the kind of young claret that I couldn't wait to rush out and buy two decades ago, but now I have to be content to admire it and wish I were twenty years younger. It is formidable, prodigious, and oh, so promising, but I cannot see it being ready to drink before the end of the second decade of the next century! Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050. Wine Advocate #115 Feb 1998
