2014 Pomerol “Pom 'N' Roll”

Château Gombaude-Guillot

2014 Pomerol “Pom 'N' Roll” Château Gombaude-Guillot - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

Bordeaux is typically not a wine that makes you want to shake, rattle, or roll. But that’s about to change, thanks to this new cuvée from Olivier Techer, the youngster running things at Gombaude-Guillot. His idea is to take out the components that make Bordeaux uncool—heavy oak, big tannins, and the pursuit of high scores—leaving just vivid fresh fruit and suave tannins in a radically drinkable expression of this pedigreed terroir. This is Pomerol like we’ve never seen before: delicious, unpretentious, with its hair let down and the amp turned up. Decant it if you’ve got time, then pour yourself a glass and move to the rhythm.

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.
