TIME FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF NEW ARRIVALS: RIGHT BANK BORDEAUX!

Last week, we focused our attention on the powerful Cabernet Sauvignon wines from left bank Bordeaux. But for today’s newsletter, we will cross over to the other side of the Gironde river to the land of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Pomerol is a small appellation that is very well known for its Merlot, and also producing a couple of the most expensive wines in the world. Chateau Petrus anyone? On the other hand, you have St. Emilion which produces wines from both grapes and is known for having a lot of great value wines!

CHOOSE ONE OR CHOOSE BOTH! TAKE YOUR PICK!

Pavie 1985
9.5/10
Odd One Out

It had an inviting smell of chocolate, smoky oak, mint and black cherry. Palate still possessed some light red fruits but with lively acidity and smooth tannins. We decanted it for 30 minutes and kept it there for the 2 hours duration of the tasting, and it still held till the end. Powerful stuff!

FIRST GROWTH WINE

AT ONLY $480!

La Fleur Petrus 1998
Prime Location
 

If you cannot already tell from the name, this chateau is situated right between Lafleur and Petrus, what a great place to be in! Although it does not match up to the 2 previous chateaux mentioned, it is a wine that cannot be overlooked!

Highly rated by wine critics and described as a sensual and voluptuous Pomerol wine, you won’t go wrong with picking up a bottle of this. Even better, this is coming from one of the best vintages that the Pomerol region has ever seen!

BEST VINTAGE VALUE WINE

BESIDE PETRUS AT ONLY $480!

BOTH FEATURED WINES ARE FROM OWC!
