Château-des-Annereaux Lalande de Pomerol 2012
Wine EnthusiastOwned by the Hessel family since the 15th century, this estate has produced a dense and solid Merlot-dominated wine. It is big and bold with ripe berry fruits and dark tannins. The black plum skin and berry flavors are concentrated and firm. It needs to age, so drink from 2018.
Wine SpectatorFleshy, with raspberry and plum sauce notes, laced with earth and smoldering tobacco accents. A touch rustic in the end, showing a firm chestnut hint on the finish
