This Pomerol Chateau, owned by the Bourotte family since 1926, is an estate we followed many years ago. And now it has made a return to the Justerini & Brooks portfolio. Michel Rolland consults and although the wines are not overtly ‘Rollandesque’, they have a silkiness and plushness that one would associate with one of the right bank’s top oenologists. Respect for the soils and the environment is of paramount importance. In fact they have even engaged in a global environmental strategy. Their soils are mainly gravel over sand and clay. Robert Parker describes ‘this over-achieving estate is one of the most consistent performers in Pomerol. Always a well-made, fleshy, succulent, hedonistic wine’.
