Glowing tributes and a host of scores from 92-94 points show how well this Pomerol did in 2017. Lisa Perrotti-Brown said that the vintage “is all about finesse, perfume and aromatic intensity”, but Bourgneuf’s richness and depth shine through too.

Pomerol is the smallest region of Bordeaux's Right Bank, very little compared to expansive St Emilion just to the east. You would think nothing of importance happened in its rather flat vineyards, yet its wines are some of the most expensive in the world. There Merlot reaches creamy perfection on both the heavy clay and the sandy gravel of the plateau. Château Bourgneuf has been in the Vayron family for 200 years. It is very well situated, just to the west of Château Trotanoy and just southwest of L'Eglise Clinet. Its small vineyard holdings are on Pomerol's plateau and produce a seductive red in the hands of winemaker Frédérique Vayron. Ageing in a third new oak for just over a year lends an elegant touch to this very fine claret.
"This is a meaty, rich and chewy Pomerol that absolutely works. Extremely well-handled"
