A Complex and Silky Wine from Pomerol

Located at the crossroads of two prestigious appellations, Pomerol and Saint-Émilion, Château Le Bon Pasteur enjoys access to both of these exceptional terroirs.

With the winemaking always closely supervised by the famous consultant oenologist Michel Rolland, Château Le Bon Pasteur is one of the key references of the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region.

While the episodes of frost at the end of April 2017 did touch the vineyard of Château Le Bon Pasteur, the best parcels were spared. The climatological conditions that followed have guaranteed the optimal ripeness of fruits, which achieved an ideal balance between sugar and acidity, along with a great aromatic freshness. The harvest saw a very meticulous selection of only the very best plots, a precision and focus reflected in the Château Le Bon Pasteur 2017. This wine, bearing the imprint of Michel Rolland, reveals the most beautiful expression of the great Pomerol terroir, which is known for its extraordinary diversity.

With its density and depth, the Château Le Bon Pasteur 2017 already displays the colour of a charming Pomerol. Fine and complex, the aromatic bouquet opens with notes of black berries and sweet spices, which give way to the delicate fragrances of violet, typical of Pomerol. The palate shines with its density and depth, emphasising the elegance of the silky texture that coats the palate with a an vivacious yet velvety feel. This wine offers a beautifully fresh finish. An attractive and refined wine from Château Le Bon Pasteur.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Bon Pasteur rocks up to the party with gregarious blueberry compote, blackberry pie and cassis notions followed by a floral entourage and charcuterie nuances. Medium to full-bodied with a firm, grainy backbone and just enough freshness, it gives a long, purely fruited finish.
