2010 Pomerol MAGNUM

Château Gombaude-Guillot

2010 Pomerol MAGNUM Château Gombaude-Guillot - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $168.00

Our Bordeaux selection is different. Young buyers whose parents did not have a cellar of old “clarets,” as the English say, might be surprised, because ours aren’t all jam and new oak. Ours have intensity, but not from high alcohol. Ours don’t enrich chemists and enologists. Our producers don’t make fortunes by following fashionable trends.
    Here is a bright, deep-colored red that can age for decades, yet you’ll want to draw from the well right from the start. Gombaude is surrounded by famous names. It is made by Claire Laval. I don’t know if her low price is due to sexism, but why not take advantage of it? Gombaude has been farmed organically for decades and is now biodynamic. Biodynamic Pomerol! Top that if you can.
    I advised you to put Claire’s 2009 down in the cellar for your old age and for your children’s inheritance. They’ll love ya for it, believe me. Now I can say with just as much enthusiasm: cellar the 2010, too. It is as great a vintage and very different. Here you’ll find loads of bright, fresh fruit, including raspberry, and a classic Bordeaux balance of tannin and acidity. –Kermit Lynch
