Le Clos du Beau-Père 2012
• Domaine: Le Clos du Beau-Père
• A.O.C.: Pomerol
• Classification: Pomerol, Bordeaux
This Pomerol is produced by Jean-Luc Thunevin of Château Valandraud fame, the man most known for his role in spearheading the garagiste movement that has revolutionized winemaking in Saint-Émilion.
"A solidly made Pomerol that’s a bit firm, this wine is generously endowed and relatively ripe (14.5% alcohol), with a deep ruby/purple color, loads of black cherries and plums. This is a medium-bodied, less complex, but satisfying Pomerol to drink over the next 10 years." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate, (4/29/2015, Issue 218), Rating: 86.
