35. Château Sergant

Lalande-de-Pomerol, Bordeaux, France 2014
  • £39.00
2014 was a tricky vintage for Bordeaux but the Merlot-dominant Lalande-de-Pomerol appelation came away with some of the best results in the region. Under the expert guidance of M. Hubert de Bouard, (of the famous Chateau Angelus and consultant winemaker at Ch.Sergant since 2011), a very pleasant wine has been produced. The nose is dominated by spicy, dark berry fruits leading to a juicy, blackcurrant jam palate with hints of chocolate and toasty caramel.(Source : Walter Hicks)   The 21 hectare vineyards soil is a mixture of sand and gravel. The wine was aged in new oak casks. The vine age is 30 years. Wine grape varieties: 82% merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon (Source: Crus Domaines de France, Bordeaux) Average score by 3 wine critics is 89/100, but Wine Enthusiast gave this wine 100 points. The high percentage of Merlot in this wine, and Pomerol generally, means the wines mature sooner, and this wine is drinking very well now. (Source: Rupert Brendon)
