Location: /Bordeaux/Libournais Red

Pomerol Bourgneuf 2011

 Château Bourgneuf Pomerol, Bordeaux , France 2011

Château Bourgneuf is a Libournais wine estate in Pomerol, known for its grand vins. The property has been owned by the Vayron family since the 1840s. Current owners Xavier and Dominique Vayron took over in the 1970s, and today run the business with their daughter Frédérique. The vineyards are spread over 9 hectares set on the gentle slope of the Pomerol plateau. Neibourgh of Chateau Trotanoy and Chateau Eglise Clinet .Soil types vary throughout the vineyard, with pure & mix of clay ,sand  and gravel.

Until 2012 the Bourgneuf was sold under a different call Bourgneuf-Vayron and Bourgneuf are the same wine. 

A wine who will need to be decanted drinking well now - Lay down 2025. 


Tasting note: Full bodied. Very smooth and easy to drink. ripe plums on the attack, but not much more. limited mid palate and shortish finish. 


- Showing better than it did from barrel (thankfully), this wine has a nice hint of camphor, damp earth, licorice, truffle and spice box. There is some mulberry and black fruit, and the wine has a certain minerality, but again, it comes across as slightly chunky, muscular and masculine. The tannins argue for giving it 4-5 years of cellaring and drinking it within the following 10-12 years.
