Pomerol, Château L'Ombrière 2014

£168.00

Merlot, Cabernet Franc

The total number of bottles produced from this tiny region each year is so small and demand so high that it will always be expensive!  Celebrities and oligarchs around the world have no price constraints to worry about, unlike the majority of us, so it is with a certain smugness that we can offer you the chance to taste great Pomerol at an absurdly friendly price. Patrick Merle makes only small quantities of L’Ombriere each year and we quickly sold out of the 04 to 2012 vintages, so we are now pleased to offer our allocation from the 2014 vintage, which is just starting it’s drinking life but will develop nicely over the next 5 years or so.
The unique clay based soils and drainage in Pomerol lend this wine superb structure,  a sublime depth and length. A bouquet of rich and tantalising aromas, including fine leather and cedar, seductive tastes of blueberry, bramble fruits, vanilla and mild spices.
Elegance, complexity and finesse — made for hedonists without big pockets!
