Château Le Bon Pasteur

A lovely reference nestled in the heart of the Pomerol appellation, Château Le Bon Pasteur was founded in the 1920s by the grandparents of the famous oenologist-consultant Michel Rolland. The latter took over in 1979, introducing numerous technical innovations that quickly contributed to its international renown. 

Accompanied by his wife Dany, they have never ceased to magnify the grandeur of the terroir of their Domaine, offering complex, richly elegant crus. Today, the team is led by Benoît Prévot, with Michel Rolland as consultant.

The Château Le Bon Pasteur is planted on 6.6 hectares of gravel-clay and gravel-sand soils. The grape varieties are 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet franc. The wines are aged for 15 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 80% of which are new.

L'Etoile de Bon Pasteur is the Second wine produced on the estate.

The Château Le Bon Pasteur produces wines that are almost exemplary, so refined, velvety and deep are they, developing sublime aromas of evolution after a few years of cellaring.

Description Château Le Bon Pasteur 2020.

2020 is a sunny and early vintage for the Bordeaux vineyard, having given birth to magnificent red wines. It will be remembered as a hot and dry summer with very little rainfall until the harvest. Thanks to the very nice conditions in September, almost summer-like with cool nights and sunny days, the grapes obtained an excellent maturity.

Blend of the 2020 vintage: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc.

The robe is a deep purple color with purple highlights.

The nose is seductive and expressive, offering notes of jammy black fruits, raspberry and violet, as well as licorice and fine wood.

The attack is silky, revealing a wine of great purity and playing on a register of red fruits and sweet spices. Voluminous and carried by fine and structured tannins, it shows freshness until the finish, which is long, noble and greedy. A very nice Pomerol wine in the making.

Food and wine pairing:

Château Le Bon Pasteur 2020 will be appreciated with a veal mignon with cardamom, a beef tenderloin with morel sauce, a roast wild boar marinated in red wine or a truffled venison steak.

For an agreement with cheeses, privilege those with pressed and uncooked paste: cantal, old mimolette, morbier, saint-nectaire and tomme of Savoy. It can also be enjoyed with Brie de Meaux, Gouda or Salers.

For dessert, finish it off with a chocolate sphere, an Opera cake or a Russian.

Cellaring potential and tasting:

Château Le Bon Pasteur 2020 deserves to wait several years in the cellar to express its full potential, and can be enjoyed until 2040.

But it is quite ready to be fully appreciated today. To do so, open and decant the bottle in the serving room at a room temperature between 15 and 18°C, ideally 3 to 4 hours before tasting.

The bottles should be kept in the cellar, protected from the light, lying down, at an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.
