2008 Pomerol

Château Gombaude-Guillot

2008 Pomerol Château Gombaude-Guillot - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

A proper cellar is a wine's home: a nurturing place of safety and comfort where it can travel through all its life stages, evolving and readying itself for your table. The Laval family has offered from their cellar this Pomerol that is but a few steps into its journey, still youthful and confident and ready to roll for the next several years. For the moment, watch how it develops in the glass, bursting with aromas of graphite, currants, plum, and pomegranate, and sporting a finely tannic backbone and lively acidity. It’s just begging for roast meat, chicken, chops—and a deep thirst.

About Bordeaux

Often considered the wine capital of the world, Bordeaux and its wines have captured the minds, hearts, and wallets of wine drinkers for centuries. For many, the wines provide an inalienable benchmark against which all other wines are measured.

Bordeaux is divided into three winegrowing regions with the city that gives the region its name in the near geographical center. The “right bank,” or the area located east of the Dordogne River, produces wines that are predominantly Merlot with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The “left bank” is located to the west of the Garonne River and produces wines dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

The third region, Entre-Deux-Mers, lies between both rivers and produces white wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle. Though technically in the left bank, it is worth noting the appellation of Sauternes, which produces arguably the world’s most famous sweet wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle as well.

Though many top Bordeaux wines are sold en primeur (in advance of their bottling) and often through a middleman known as a negoçiant, Kermit has always preferred to purchase directly from the winemaker. For more than three decades he has sought out small producers, who make classic Bordeaux wines and are willing to play outside the negoçiant system. This ethic has led to longstanding relationships, excellent prices, and perhaps most important—wines of great value and longevity.
