Château Perron, Lalande de Pomerol, Bordeaux, France, 2018
Grapes: A blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc with around 18 months in oak (25% New).
Beautiful deep ruby red with tints at rim showing no signs of ageing as yet. Rich, powerful and many-layered nose of red fruits, dark spice, fresh oak and cocoa. Supple, velvety palate with fine, crisply elegant tannins. Fresh lingering finish with menthol flavours. A charming, easy-to-drink wine which will go down well with any fine food
Established in the mid-1600’s by the then owner of Haut Brion, the 57-acre (23-hectare) grounds of this château have been in the Massonie family for three generations. Many of the vines are 60 years old. This is a classic, Merlot dominated blend from Lalande-de-Pomerol. This wine has the benefits of the neighbouring Pomerol wines without the price.
"The nose is fresh, aromatic and offers concentration as well as a racy minerality. It reveals notes of fresh blackberry, iris, peony and small notes of small blue fruits associated with small varietal touches as well as hints of red fruits and discreet hints of liquorice. The palate is fruity, gourmand, well-balanced and offers a beautiful material, a small creaminess, freshness, a mineral frame, a small suavity as well as fullness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy strawberry and small notes of fleshy blue fruits associated with touches of flowers (peony, iris) as well as hints of liquorice, caramelization and very fine hints of vanilla. Tannins are well-built. There are varietal hints on the finish."
