Critical Acclaim

RP94 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 22nd Dec 2011

"A brilliant effort from well-known oenologists Dany and Michel Rolland, the 2009 Bon Pasteur is dominated by Merlot, with a touch of Cabernet Franc included in the blend. It reveals textbook notes of mocha, tobacco leaf, blackberries, black cherries, roasted coffee and wood smoke. Full-bodied and luscious with a succulent, beautifully textured, multidimensional mouthfeel, low acidity and sweet but noticeable tannin, it is reminiscent of the 1982 Bon Pasteur, which continued to put on weight for a decade or more. If the 2009 does the same, it will come close to equaling that legendary vintage. Drink it over the next 20+ years." (94 pts.)

SP92 Wine Spectator Jun 15, 2012

"Ripe and lush at first, delivering very enticing plum, fig and blackberry fruit, this picks up defining grip through the finish. Graphite and spice cake notes adding length and contrast. Drink now through 2027. 2,800 cases made." (92 pts.)

ST90+ Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar May/Jun 2010

"Ruby-red. Superripe aromas of raspberry, iron, sweet spices, tobacco and sweet oak. Lush, broad and ripe, with sumptuous red cherry and blackcurrant flavors saturating the palate without leaving any undue impression of weight. The enticing, fine-grained finish shows lovely floral lift and a light touch. I found a distinct aromatic resemblance between this wine, from a property owned by Michel and Dany Rolland, and Italy’s famous Masseto, the 100%-merlot wine from Ornellaia where Rolland consults. Perhaps the best young Le Bon Pasteur of the last 20 years, and a wine that will one day rival the 1982 and 1989." (90–93 pts.)

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is known the world over for its exceptional wines, particularly red blends made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, among others. These Cabernets aren't typically the full-bodied Cabs you get from California, but rather medium-bodied wines that emanate elegance and sophistication.

You'll also find some refreshing Bordeaux whites and, of course, Bordeaux's famous dessert wine, Sauternes.

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
