Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, May 2012
(WE91-93 points) A smooth, rounded wine, this shows opulence with its rich blackberry fruit.

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2014
This is full-bodied, with gorgeous berry and chocolate character. Beautiful, velvety tannins and bright acidity. Needs two or three years to soften. The clarity of fruit is exceptional here. Try in 2016.

A fresh, pure, fruit-driven style, with pretty raspberry and cherry flavors, lined with rose petal and cherry blossom notes. The supple, rounded finish has a pleasant incense frame. Best from 2015 through 2025. 2,185... A fresh, pure, fruit-driven style, with pretty raspberry and cherry flavors, lined with rose petal and cherry blossom notes.

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... 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 successful wine in a tough vintage. It should hit its peak in 3-4 years and last 15 or more thereafter. - 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.

Expected blend of 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. This 7-hectare estate near L'Evangile is owned by Dany and Michel Rolland. Soils are clay and gravel. Nearly opaque purple color. Soy and blackberry fruit intermingle... Expected blend of 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. This 7-hectare estate near L'Evangile is owned by Dany and Michel Rolland. Soils are clay and gravel. Nearly opaque purple color. Soy and blackberry fruit intermingle with soy cola and ample sweet black licorice on the palate. Leafy tobacco and tar figure on the back end along with more robust notes of coffee espresso and cigar ash on the finish. The firm tannins make Le Bon Pasteur one of Pomerol's heartier wines of the vintage with plenty of sweet refined fruit and well-integrated oak. Cellar for 5-6 years and enjoy through 2025.
