Owned by the Bourotte family since 1926, Chateau Bonalgue has recently garnered respect and acclaim from critics and consumers alike. Robert Parker speaks very highly indeed of the wines of this estate, noting that “one can’t say enough about Pierre and Jean-Baptiste Bourotte, who consistently make an over-achieving wine.”
This great Pomerol estate has received a lot of attention from renown wine critics in recent years.
Made with 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the wine is aged for 18 months in oak of which 50% is new. A very generous wine with intense and pure blackberry fruits and hints of tobacco. Velvety on the palate with silky tannins and good length.
For Galloni, “Simply put, the finest 2014s are utterly magnificent and well worth seeking out”, especially as prices remain incredibly reasonable.
This shows all of the hallmarks of the best wines of the year, “All the elements have come together beautifully in this overt, flamboyant yet midweight Pomerol.” (AG)
Only 2,500 cases produced
With its best ever score from Galloni, it looks very nicely priced against other comparably scored 2014 Pomerol.
