Due to the upgrading of the Justerini & Brooks computer systems, there will be a few days where it will be necessary to deactivate the ability to both nominate delivery dates and accept payments on the website. We will continue to receive your orders and process these offline but there will be delays to both the sending of invoices and the delivery of wines while we migrate all our data to our new system. We will be operating as normal from Tuesday 6th October and invoices and wines will arrive shortly after. Thank you for your patience.

If you have any questions, please contact your account manager or email the customers services team on justbrooksorders@justerinis.com.

Tasting Note:

Alexandre Thienpont described 2017 as a normal growing season with no excess heat, drought and cool nights; he then quipped that they were half a degree from catastrophe at the end of April… Typically understated… A classic VCC with a beautifully polished fragrant profile. Produced from 81% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. As ever, the Cabernets add a wonderful florality to the bouquet. This is really brimming with noble Cabernet aromas of cassis, violets and minerals. The palate is plush and broad with a fleshiness to the fruit and crunchy black berries. We say it every year, but this is a jolly handsome Pomerol, a really coiffured, stylish example with effortless length and immaculately managed tannins. As with many of the best 2017s, there is this wonderful freshness (3.4pH) and an engaging salinity on the finish with makes the mouth water. Splendid!
