Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 94
James Suckling

A firm, silky red with fine-grained tannins that show intensity and focus. Full, yet refined and balanced. Pretty length.

Barrel Sample: 93-94

JD 92
Jeb Dunnuck
The 2020 Château Tour Maillet (Lagardère) offers a great bouquet of ripe cassis fruit as well as notes of white flowers, chocolate, and spicy oak, with a kiss of background herbs. Medium to full-bodied, it has rock star purity of fruit and a rich, concentrated style that will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age.
Barrel Sample: 90-92
D 91
Decanter
Butterscotch on the opening, plenty of enjoyable berry fruits, chocolate and liquorice and a sleek gourmet sign off, with a touch of chocolate shavings. This is not going for subtlety, but it works.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Deep purple-black in color, the 2020 Tour Maillet is a little oaky to begin, giving way to a core of kirsch, black raspberries and mulberries, plus touches of underbrush, Sichuan pepper and pencil shavings. The medium to full-bodied palate is also wearing its oak a little heavy, revealing a core of crunchy black and red berries with plenty of spicy sparks and a very firm, sturdy frame, finishing woody. Barrel Sample: (88-90)+?

Pomerol Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

A source of exceptionally sensual and glamorous red wines, Pomerol is actually a rather small appellation in an unassuming countryside. It sits on a plateau immediately northeast of the city of Libourne on the right bank of the Dordogne River. Pomerol and St-Émilion are the stars of what is referred to as Right Bank Bordeaux: Merlot-dominant red blends completed by various amounts of Cabernet Franc or Cabernet Sauvignon. While Pomerol has no official classification system, its best wines are some of the world’s most sought after.

Historically Pomerol attached itself to the larger and more picturesque neighboring region of St-Émilion until the late 1800s when discerning French consumers began to recognize the quality and distinction of Pomerol on its own. Its popularity spread to northern Europe in the early 1900s.

After some notable vintages of the 1940s, the Pomerol producer, Petrus, began to achieve great international attention and brought widespread recognition to the appellation. Its subsequent distribution by the successful Libourne merchant, Jean-Pierre Mouiex, magnified Pomerol's fame after the Second World War.

Perfect for Merlot, the soils of Pomerol—clay on top of well-drained subsoil—help to create wines capable of displaying an unprecedented concentration of color and flavor.

The best Pomerol wines will be intensely hued, with qualities of fresh wild berries, dried fig or concentrated black plum preserves. Aromas may be of forest floor, sifted cocoa powder, anise, exotic spice or toasted sugar and will have a silky, smooth but intense texture.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
