Winemaker Notes

Dark ruby color, with a hint of fuchsia. This wine has a rich, complex bouquet of very ripe Merlot on the nose, light oak, a note of smokiness, and a touch of fruit stone. Opulent and full-bodied on the palate, with powerful but velvety tannins. A firm finish with long notes of oak and licorice and good potential.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A fleshy, full-throttle wine with lots of mocha, kirsch, mulberry, and plum, their 2010 displays a smorgasbord of aromas, a full-bodied mouthfeel, terrific purity, density and even a hint of lead pencil shavings and subtle toasty oak. If you want to understand the genius of the Rollands, there is no better example than looking at their own wine from this property in Pomerol. The tannins are present, but not that significant, thus I tend to think the wine will come into its own in 4-5 years and last for 20 or more.
JS 95
James Suckling
What a wine. Cool purple fruit at first with plums, coffee and red peppercorns. Very elegant on the palate opening up with a great texture and finesse. Deep and profound yet still so harmonious. Hazelnut and chocolate. It comes together beautifully.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Juicy and fresh, offering a friendly core of damson plum, raspberry and black cherry, with plenty of sweet toasty vanilla bean and licorice notes. A caressing, polished structure guides the finish. Rather forward in the end. For fans of the style. Drink now through 2020.

Image of winery
The Bon Pasteur estate, located in Maillet, on the good terroirs of the Pomerol appellation, grew from the determination of Hermine and Joseph Dupuy who bought it around 1920. Its surface area was originally quite small, with several plots of land being added as the children, Geneviève and Serge Rolland, took over the management. It reached its current size in 1955. Since 1978 the two grandsons of the estate's founders, Jean-Daniel and Michel Rolland, run the estate.

This desire to preserve the specific character of each plot and grape variety until final blending is maintained during the aging process in oak barrels (renewed every year) lasting 12 to 18 months according to the vintages. The diversity of the soil in the various plots adds complexity and originality to this growth, and the vineyard is respected right through to bottling without fining.
