Get to know: Chateau Fleur d'Eymerits, Lalande-de-Pomerol
A 'baby' Pomerol that is ripe, supple and fruit forward and plenty of depth. Drinkable in its youth, it is very accessible and satisfying with great balance of earthy, blackberry, plum and raspberry fruit, good concentration, a lick of oak, liquorice and five spice finishing with measured acidity and nicely textured tannins.
Enjoy this with some roast beef.
"A real Bordeaux banger with a lot of easy charm. This really stood out at a tasting and we loved it's bold fruit, velvety texture and long finish. A satisfying treat to enjoy with friends over dinner."
