The 2014 Bordeaux Barrels Diary: Pomerol Precision at Pétrus

Attention to detail and moderation in the cellar gave Jean-Claude and Olivier Berrouet a gorgeous 2014 Right Bank red

Posted: April 2, 2015  By James Molesworth

My final stop during my 2014 Bordeaux barrel tastings was at the revered Right Bank estate of Château Pétrus. With the recent cellar renovation done and the doughty statue of St. Peter safely ensconced somewhere else, Pétrus seems ready to embark on another generation among Pomerol's elite wines.

The 2014 Bordeaux Barrels Diary: The Fruit and Nothing but the Fruit at Château Le Pin

Nicholas Thienpont presents the 2014 Vieux Château Certan and Le Pin Pomerols

Posted: April 1, 2015  By James Molesworth

The reserved Alexandre Thienpont continues to pursue the fine details as he manages Vieux Château Certan and Le Pin, and he has been joined by his seemingly equally gifted son Guillaume since 2011. "2014 is classic in style. It's fresh, so it's both rich and with energy," said Alexandre. "With the richness it's also easily digestible. It's not hard or delicate."

Posted: March 31, 2015  By James Molesworth

Through my tastings of the 2014 Bordeaux barrels at various châteaus, I haven't been able to peg the vintage in comparison to another. When I mentioned that to Christian Moueix, he took his customary pause before answering. "We had something like this in 1978," he said. "Of course today we are better than '78 because viticulture has improved so much."
