Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling
Blueberry and blackberry character with smoky tobacco, make this so serious and solid. Full body. Chewy finish. Structured wine.
Barrel Sample: 94-95
JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck

Deeply colored, the 2018 Château Tour Maillet (Lagardère) is a ripe, fleshy, yet beautiful Pomerol that has classic blue fruits, smoked tobacco, and earthy aromas and flavors. With medium to full-bodied richness, gorgeous tannins, and both the sex appeal and purity of this terrific vintage, it’s going to be drinkable with just short-term cellaring and last for 15 years or more. Barrel Sample: 91-93.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep purple-black colored, the 2018 Tour Maillet is a little cedary to begin, giving way to Black Forest cake, stewed plums and baked blackberries with hints of bouquet garni and scorched earth. Full-bodied, it has a firm, grainy texture and splash of mid-palate freshness lifting the dense fruit and leading to a lively finish.
Barrel Sample: 88-90

Pomerol Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

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.
