2015 CHATEAU VIEUX POTANA LALANDE-DE-POMEROL

$33.00 $33.00

Did you know that one of the most expensive wines in the world upon release is Chateau Petrus, and that it’s made from 100% Merlot grapes grown in the Pomerol region in Bordeaux?  Lalande-de-Pomerol borders the Pomerol region to the north and of the two main villages Lalande-de-Pomerol and Néac, Néac has clay and gravelly soils commonly seen in Pomerol.   Chateau Vieux Potana comes from Néac and exhibits the dusty, chalky tannins, dark berries and gravely undertones that are classic to the region.  The winery’s consulting winemaker is Michel Rolland, one of the most influential winemakers in the world with hundreds of clients spanning 13 countries… At $33/btl, I strongly recommend securing a case.

Marrying 85% Merlot from 35 year old vines with 15% Cabernet Franc, Vieux Potana’s 2015 perfectly showcases the elegance and supple berries of Merlot with the power and aromatics of great Cabernet Franc.  Most people likely have never heard of Chateau Vieux Potana and with the tiny number of cases imported into the US, neither had I until I tasted it…

Description

Tasting Notes: “This wine displays a shimmering garnet/ruby color, with an elegant nose of tart cherry pie filling, cocoa dusted chocolate truffles, forest ferns and freshly turned earth. The palate is beautifully focused with concentrated red cherry, liquid minerals, fresh currants with a mouth quenching freshness that triggers your swallow reflex.  The finish is long and complex with the perfect combination of power and elegance.
