|Brand||Chateau Le Bon Pasteur|
Wine SpectatorFull and long, supervelvety and rich, with plum and raspberry. This is a really big Le Bon Pasteur.
Wine AdvocateA brilliant effort from well-known oenologists Dany and Michel Rolland, the 2009 Bon Pasteur is dominated by Merlot, with a touch of Cabernet Franc included in the blend. It reveals textbook notes of mocha, tobacco leaf, blackberries, black cherries, roasted coffee and wood smoke. Full-bodied and luscious with a succulent, beautifully textured, multidimensional mouthfeel, low acidity and sweet but noticeable tannin, it is reminiscent of the 1982 Bon Pasteur, which continued to put on weight for a decade or more. If the 2009 does the same, it will come close to equaling that legendary vintage. Drink it over the next 20+ years.
Wine EnthusiastDense, with impressive solid tannins and powerful fruit. The wine is smooth at first, then structure comes through with a final dry core.
