Though we focus a lot on Burgundy and Champagnes, we also like to explore Bordeaux especially those fantastic aged wines from the right bank which is always enjoyable to have a sip of a matured Merlot from a caring Chateau who makes their wines perfect for aging. One of our best experiences would be that from Chateau Vieux Maillet. According to <Decanter>, 1998 Pomerol is a “late vintage of quite exciting quality, especially Pomerol. Top wines are seductive, with the structure, tannins and acidity for ageing “. From a tiny Chateau in Pomerol, we were lucky to have secured a case from 1998 and immediately opened one to taste last week once it landed and it was absolutely marvelous! -

Solid tannin. Black plum, current and follow by a mild smokiness at the end. This is a good example of Pomerol and shows an entry level price tag can achieve(If you can secure any from the market). Stepping into 20 years old and this wine shows the beauty of Bordeaux as well as a fantastic vintage of the right bank. Don’t miss this.
