A tight, focused red with blackberry and dark-chocolate character. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Tannin driven. Muscular.
The 2019 Le Bon Pasteur is different in style to previous vintages, and I mean that in a positive sense. This is very elegant and classic in style, pure dark cherry and blueberry fruit entwined with a touch of truffle. The palate is well balanced with gentle grip, slightly chalky in texture with well judged acidity, harmonious with a creamier finish, a hint of salted liquorice lingering on the aftertaste. Excellent. Tasted three times with consistent notes. (NM)
The 2019 Château Le Bon Pasteur is terrific, and up with the finest vintages I've tasted from this estate. Deep black cherry and currant fruits as well as lots of spice box, damp earth, chocolate, and floral notes define the bouquet, and it shows the purity and elegance that's the hallmark of the vintage. It should shine with just short-term cellaring and evolve for two decades.
The 2019 Bon Pasteur sports a deep garnet-purple color, charging out of the glass with bold blackberry pie, blueberry preserves and prunes notes followed by hints of cedar chest, Ceylon tea, Indian spices and licorice with a waft of violets. Full-bodied, the palate packs a wallop of black fruits, framed by rock-solid, grainy tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with great length and depth. (LPB) 92-94+
