Robert Parker quoted (Jun 04) A terrific success from the well-known estate of Bordeauxâ€™s famed oenologists Dany and Michel Rolland, the 2001 Bon Pasteur is a super effort for the vintage. Deep plum/purple to the rim, with a sumptuous nose of barbecue spices, smoke, black cherries, mocha, and spice box, this
Robert Parker(Apr 2014) The flagship estate of Dany and Michel Rolland that was recently sold to Chinese buyers, this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc possesses a dark ruby/purple color as well as abundant aromas of sweet kirsch, cassis, licorice and plums. Full-bodied and impressively endowed, it is another
Robert Parker (Jun 10) Seemingly fully mature, Michel and Dany Rollandâ€™s seductive 2000 Bon Pasteur reveals a dark garnet/plum color along with a big, sweet kiss of soy, cedar, roasted herbs, blackberries, caramelized black cherries, and hints of smoke and kirsch. This fleshy, full-bodied Pomerol reveals low acidity, a savory, broad
Robert Parker (May 2011) A delicious, impressive, stunningly seductive offering, the 2008 Bon Pasteur exhibits spicy, mocha, coffee bean, black currant and sweet mulberry aromas and flavors. With silky tannins, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, admirable purity and an irresistible personality, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years.
Robert Parker (Apr 2002) Dany and Michel Rolland's home estate has produced a dense, ruby/purple-colored wine with an intriguing perfume of espresso, sweet vanilla, and black cherry jam. It is powerful and concentrated for a 1999. This medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic Pomerol is atypically structured, with plenty of grip, length,
Robert Parker quoted (Apr 01) The dense purple-colored 1998 boasts a beautifully rich, complex perfume of blackberries, plums, lead pencil, cherries, mocha, and caramel. Powerful and rich, with a multilayered texture, and an opulent, viscous finish revealing enough sweet tannin for definition, this is a terrific, full-bodied, seamless effort from one
Robert Parker (Dec 94) First the good news. Certan de May's 1992 is obviously a powerful, concentrated wine, with the intensely herbaceous side of Certan de May fortunately subdued. The result is a wine with a forcefully rich, blackcurrant nose combined with scents of smoky new oak, tobacco, and herbs, medium
Robert Parker quote (Apr 1999) This is a backward, muscular, highly-extracted wine with a boatload of tannin, thus the question mark. The saturated plum/purple color is followed by an aggressively oaky nose with scents of roasted coffee, blackberries, and prunes. It is somewhat of a freak for a 1996 Pomerol given
Robert Parker (Jan 98) This is a typical 1975, tannic, still youthfully hard and closed, though somewhat less weighty, concentrated, and authoritative than other wines from this vintage. The wine is moderately dark in color, with the hard 1975-style tannins still quite assertive. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 5/84.
Robert Parker (Apr 08) The 2006 Te Muna Road Pinot Noir was a little sullen on the nose when I tasted it, the palate displays very fine tannins with a touch of sous-bois and spice towards the plum finish. The precocious Craggy Range has rapidly become one of New Zealandâ€™s premier wine
Robert Parker (Feb 09) This consistently high quality estateâ€™s 2006 exhibits aromas of cedar, black currants, black cherries, loamy soil, and background toasty oak. Medium-bodied and richly fruity with sweet tannin, it should drink well for 5-6 years. Good value.
