Pomerol & Lalande de Pomerol

The sugar ripeness of the Merlot was the main issue in Pomerol. Some potential alcohols were off the charts by the time the grapes reached phenolic maturity. It means a few 2018 Pomerols are high in alcohol and quite hard work. One of our companions during the April tastings quipped that the Dégustation Pomerol Séduction was anything but. Don't give up entirely though - in the right magical hands there are Pomerols to seduce. Le Pin, VCC, and L'Église-Clinet were outstanding (as ever) and lower down the scale we really enjoyed Petite Église, Beauregard and Rouget.
