Tasting Note:

Domaines Barons de Rothschild's property in Pomerol has been a little hit and miss over the last decade. The estate is now 100% organic and 70% of the vineyards are being farmed biodynamically. This presented huge problems when mildew attacked. In the end, they lost 50% of the crop, so there will be some 35,000 bottles produced. The bouquet is quite expressive with notes of crème de cassis, menthol and dried flowers. The palate is threaded with fine grained tannins and hints of fine minerals and salted Valrhona chocolate. It feels a little constructed, but very luxury - all cashmere and silk with sweet alpine strawberries and hedgerow fruit on the finish. The Evangile team harvested early and as a result the alcohol is a relatively low 13.5%. Perfect super-yacht drinking! The Cabernet Franc that was lost to the frost in 2017 made a return to the Grand Vin, the final blend being 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc.
