    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.

    Deep ruby. Cocoa and coffee complicate ripe black plum and blueberry aromas on the forward nose. Bright, juicy and dense, with ripe black cherry and plum flavors nicely framed by lively acidity and complicated by a hint of milk chocolate. The finish is long, smooth and pure. (ID)

    Inexpressive nose. Lots of juice and sweetness. Fragrant and very Pomerol. Neat.

    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.

    WA 94 (Parker): 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. WA 93-95 (Martin): Tasted at the Pomerol Syndicate tasting. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, this has a ripe plum and macerated black cherry nose, that become quite floral and refined with aeration...but it needs patience to coalesce in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite silky tannin, very good grip with a well defined, quite tannic finish that has excellent freshness and backbone. This is a superb Bon Pasteur from Michel and Dany Rolland. Tasted April 2010.
