Tasting Notes

"Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 2014 Le Clos du Beau Pere performed well above its showing in barrel. It has a modest bouquet: raspberry preserve, crushed strawberry, cedar and faint pencil box aromas that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with firm and quite strict tannin, matched by a fine thread of acidity. It is very backward as you would expect soon after bottling, however, there is good substance here and there is a very attractive salinity that lingers on the finish. What a fine Pomerol this has turned out to be. Tasted December 2016." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, (2/28/2017, Issue 229), Rating: 91, Drink: 2018-2028
