JS 95
James Suckling
This is the best La Patache I have tasted with a fantastic depth of fruit and a center palate that is solid and beautiful. Lots of dark-berry, dark-chocolate and hazelnut character. Very long and persistent palate.
Barrel Sample: 94-95 Points
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The deep purple-black colored 2018 La Patache comes tumbling out of the glass with bold black plum preserves and blackberry coulis scents with touches of wild blueberries, licorice and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, it delivers impactful blue and black fruit with a plush texture and just enough freshness, finishing fragrant.

Chateau La Patache, France
In 2012, Peter Kwok and his son Howard acquired Chateau La Patache. The property is located in Pomerol at the locality la Patache and consists of 3.18 hectares spreading over nine plots.

The plots are located on soils of a wide variety and complexity - soil composed of fine gravels with crasse de fer and clay in the subsoil.

La Patache is a locality on the national road 89 (Bordeaux-Lyon), whose name evokes this kind of coaches which went there in ancient times. Indeed, in the nineteenth century, « les pataches » were horse carriages that served as stagecoach in the countryside. The locality La Patache in Pomerol can be found on the first Napoleonic maps.

The original stone buildings were in fact former a post office at the entrance of Libourne. It is in the renovated stables that in 2012 we installed a modern winery and cellars. The old post office building has been refitted into a barrel cellar.

Pomerol Wine

Bordeaux, France

A source of exceptionally sensual and glamorous red wines, Pomerol is actually a rather small appellation in an unassuming countryside. It sits on a plateau immediately northeast of the city of Libourne on the right bank of the Dordogne River. Pomerol and St-Émilion are the stars of what is referred to as Right Bank Bordeaux: Merlot-dominant red blends completed by various amounts of Cabernet Franc or Cabernet Sauvignon. While Pomerol has no official classification system, its best wines are some of the world’s most sought after.

Historically Pomerol attached itself to the larger and more picturesque neighboring region of St-Émilion until the late 1800s when discerning French consumers began to recognize the quality and distinction of Pomerol on its own. Its popularity spread to northern Europe in the early 1900s.

After some notable vintages of the 1940s, the Pomerol producer, Petrus, began to achieve great international attention and brought widespread recognition to the appellation. Its subsequent distribution by the successful Libourne merchant, Jean-Pierre Mouiex, magnified Pomerol's fame after the Second World War.

Perfect for Merlot, the soils of Pomerol—clay on top of well-drained subsoil—help to create wines capable of displaying an unprecedented concentration of color and flavor.

The best Pomerol wines will be intensely hued, with qualities of fresh wild berries, dried fig or concentrated black plum preserves. Aromas may be of forest floor, sifted cocoa powder, anise, exotic spice or toasted sugar and will have a silky, smooth but intense texture.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
