Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol and at negoçiants. The Le Bon Pasteur 2010 has a very pure bouquet with just a hint of anis, tightly wound at first but opening nicely in the glass with hints of orange-blossom. The palate is very difficult to assess at the moment with very bold tannins, very grippy and assertive. Affording the sample some aeration, it develops a touch of spice and dried herbs towards the finish. Sultry and brooding, this will demand several years ageing before it reaches its plateau but I like this style of Bon Pasteur. Look out for the name, Michel Rolland. I think he'll be big.

It boasts a dense ruby/purple color, great fruit on the attack, mid-palate and finish, super freshness for its size, full-bodied power and lots of mulberry, caramel, mocha, earth and graphite characteristics. Give this beauty 5-7 years of cellaring (unusual for a Bon Pasteur) and drink it over the following 25 years.

Firm while also rounded, very rich Merlot spice and blackberry character. There are hugely dense, extracted tannins, with a final dark fruit character. 91-93 - R.V.

A beautifully perfumed nose is dominated by red raspberry, cherry and spice. This profile carries over to the medium-bodied palate that shows terrific purity of fruit.

This profile carries over to the medium-bodied palate that shows terrific purity of fruit. Clean, precise, fresh and elegant the sweet tannins are integrating nicely indicating that this lovely Pomerol will be enjoyable early, but the structure is there for 15-20 years of evolution.
