2020 Berry Bros. & Rudd Pomerol by Château Feytit-Clinet, Bordeaux

Description

Our Pomerol comes from young vines at Château Feytit-Clinet, a seven-hectare estate planted mostly to Merlot. It is succulent and plump, with blackberry, black cherry and mulberry notes. There is a softening hint of allspice and chocolate, framed by velvety tannins. Cabernet Franc (10%) brings complexity and an aromatic crunch, counterbalancing the wine’s richness. A savoury touch on the finish makes this very moreish. Exceedingly versatile, this would pair with most lamb or poultry dishes – and you could even cellar it for a year or two.

About this WINE

Chateau Feytit-Clinet

Chateau Feytit-Clinet

Situated on the western part of the plateau in the Pomerol wine appellation in Bordeaux, Château Feytit-Clinet belonged to the  stable of Moueix family wines until 1999.

Jeremy Chasseuil arrived at Château Feytit-Clinet in time for the stunning 2000 vintage. Previously a wine-maker at Château La Dominique, his efforts since have resulted in some very impressive wines.

Soils here are rich in clay which favours the Merlot grape rather than the Cabernets, and Jeremy has exploited them perfectly to produce succulent wines, never over-extracted, and full of charm and distinction.

Pomerol

Pomerol

Pomerol is the smallest of Bordeaux's major appellations, with about 150 producers and approximately 740 hectares of vineyards. It is home to many bijou domaines, many of which produce little more than 1,000 cases per annum.

Both the topography and architecture of the region is unremarkable, but the style of the wines is most individual. The finest vineyards are planted on a seam of rich clay which extends across the gently-elevated plateau of Pomerol, which runs from the north-eastern boundary of St Emilion. On the sides of the plateau, the soil becomes sandier and the wines lighter.

For a long time Pomerol was regarded as the poor relation of St Emilion, but the efforts of Jean-Pierre Moueix in the mid-20th century brought the wine to the attention of more export markets, where its fleshy, intense and muscular style found a willing audience, in turn leading to surge in prices led by the demand for such limited quantities.

There is one satellite region to the immediate north, Lalande-de-Pomerol whose wines are stylistically very similar, if sometimes lacking the finesse of its neighbour. There has never been a classification of Pomerol wines.
