Château Au Pont de Guitres, Lalande-de-Pomerol 2016. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc.
2016 was a dream vintage for the boutique 3-hectare vineyard of Château Au Pont de Guitres, which is owned by the Rousselot family, friends and collaborators of Marc and Élodie. The wine is only aged in older oak barrels and so the fruit jumps to the fore with notes of blackberry and cassis, then mint, cranberry, and chocolate, and just a little smoky oak around the edges of the blossoming aromatic halo that radiates from this wine. The palate is full and dense, with silky tannins and a luscious, glossy richness.
Drink now to 2030+.
The post-arrival price will be $48.34. Today's pre-departure price is $39.95 in any dozen.
