There was a time when Pomerol was an insider’s wine, a poor country cousin to the superstar Lafites, Margaux and Moutons of the left bank. Today, of course, when Pomerols like Petrus and Le Pin cost many thousands of dollars a bottle, that day feels long past.

And yet Pomerol is still somehow a region full of insider wines. It’s a rare big-name appellation that still has many small, family-owned producers—none of whom are more exciting than Château Bourgneuf.

Bourgneuf has a small holding right next to the much better known (and pricey) Château Trotanoy. Their patchwork of terroirs includes a mix of Pomerol’s famous clays, including a parcel with lots of iron deposits (which can give violet and even truffle notes to the wine) that abuts Trotanoy’s vines. They also have a gravel-rich parcel and some sandy sites. This mix of terroirs makes for complex wines with richness as well as fine elegance.

Bourgneuf is run by two generations of women, dedicated to conscientious (vine-by-vine) hand farming, minimal-interventionist winemaking, patience, and a thousand small (but right) choices.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 90
"The 2015 Bourgneuf is a plump, juicy Pomerol that will drink well upon release. Pliant and expressive, with silky tannins, the 2015 offers plenty of forward fruit, but in a super-classic, mid-weight frame. Tobacco, mint and crushed flowers add layers of nuance. Although not the last word on complexity, the 2015 is really quite lovely and delicious. Tasted two times." -Vinous


D 93
"Again maintaining the success that this estate showed en primeur, and reflecting the positive changes made at the property under a new generation led by Frederic Vayron. Well integrated tannins, with blackberry fruit which feels suspended as it tightropes through the palate. This should age well."

Wine Spectator

WS 92
"Dark and saturated with fig flavors, showing extra boysenberry and black currant compote notes. Ganache and tobacco accents fill in the finish, giving this a slightly gutsy profile. Should mellow with cellaring, as the fruit is hedonistic."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 91
"Powerful tannins give a dense wine, rich with ripe black fruits and solid tannins. The acidity and the weight of the fruit hold the promise for the future of this concentrated wine."
