A very solid LBP with a full body and firm and juicy tannins. A little old school but it’s opulent and rather decadent with a fresh finish at the end. Shows excellent potential. ~94-95 JS
Showing beautifully, the 2022 Château Bon Pasteur offers up a ripe, sexy, medium to full-bodied style as well as classic Pomerol notes of red and black fruits, leafy herbs, chocolate, and spice. It has good mid-palate depth, building, ripe tannins, and the powerful, concentrated style of the vintage. It's going to need 5-7 years of bottle age, but it's a terrific wine in the making that's going to rival the 2018, 2019, and 2020. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that will spend 15 months in 70% new oak. ~93-95 JD
The 2022 Le Bon Pasteur is another impressive wine in a string of recent releases from the chateau. Bright, vibrant and beautifully perfumed, Le Bon Pasteur is very nicely done. Crushed red berry fruit, chalk, mint, white pepper and cinnamon lend notable brilliance. This mid-weight, juicy Pomerol is a charmer. Moving away from the heavily extracted style of the past is paying off for Le Bon Pasteur. There's still plenty of richness but far more harmonious balance than in some vintages in the not-too-distant past. Tasted three times. ~92-94 AG-VM
The 2022 Le Bon Pasteur has a very ripe, candied, quite floral bouquet that takes time to open in the glass. Touches of Christmas cake infuse the black fruit, opulent and generous. The palate is medium-bodied and shows more composure than the aromatics at the moment. The acidity is well judged and counterbalances the richness on the finish. Quite long and silky smooth, this 2022 continues the success of the more classically-styled 2021. ~92-94 NM-VM
