Tasting notes

An estate that was always going to be structured in this type of vintage due to its location right next to Trotanoy with super-charged gravel-clay soils. Striking in its wave of violet and peony aromatics, followed by a musuclar body. One of the most structured Bourgneufs that I have tasted En Primeur, with plentify cassis, bilberry, dark fruits, graphite and smoked earth, tightly gripping tannins on the finish. Good quality, will need time. 9ha, harvest September 5 to 15.

Tasted on multiple occasions, the 2022 Château Bourgneuf never failed to impress. Checking in as 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, it has a deep purple hue as well ample ripe cherry and mulberry fruit, notes of Christmas spice, graphite, and leather, medium to full body, ripe tannins, and a great finish.

Offering up aromas of sweet blackberries and cherries mingled with licorice, violets and black truffle, the 2022 Bourgneuf is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with a fleshy core of fruit, supple tannins and a long, resonant finish. From nine hectares of holdings situated below Trotanoy and next to La Cabanne, much of which are characterized by clay-rich gravels, this promising property, now working with consultant Thomas Duclos, is really beginning to exploit all its potential.

A rich and bold Bourgneuf, this is full-bodied and pretty with slightly dried fruit, with velvety polished tannins. 85% merlot and 15% cabernet franc.

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com (April 2023)

The 2022 Bourgneuf is a dark, sumptuous wine. Black cherry, gravel, spice, licorice and dried herbs are all finely delineated in a Pomerol that offers tons of richness as well as energy. All the classic Bourgneuf signatures are beautifully dialed up. Over the last few vintages in particular, Bourgneuf has been quite a bit richer texturally than in the past. The 2022 is another step in that direction. Tasted twice.
