Tasting Notes

"The 2018 Le Bon Pasteur has a very pure bouquet with crushed violet and iris scents infusing the black cherry and raspberry fruit. There is a citrus quality to the aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and more grip than I expected thanks to the structure on the finish. The acidity is well judged with a touch of black pepper on the aftertaste. Very promising but it will require some bottle ageing." - Neal Martin, vinous.com, (November, 2019), Rating: (91-93), Drink: 2024-2040

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Bon Pasteur offers up expressive notions of baked red and black cherries, mulberries and warm blueberries with hints of licorice, chocolate box and menthol. The full-bodied palate has great freshness with firm, ripe, rounded tannins and bags of juicy fruit, finishing long with a minty kick." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, (4/23/2019, Bordeaux 2018 Issue), Rating: (92-94)+
