2020 Château Bonalgue  (Pomerol) 91

Medium-bodied, elegant, fresh, ripe and already expressing its spicy plum, espresso, earthy, smoke and cocoa-filled nose. Round, polished, and earthy, the red fruits in the finish are ripe, fresh and vibrant. Give the wine 2-4 years of cellaring and it should be a better tasting experience. 90-92 Pts

2019 Château Bonalgue  (Pomerol) 90

Floral and plummy, with a fruity character, along with earth, herbs, olives, and a big hit of oak in the medium-bodied finish. Give it a few years in the bottle to gain additional nuances and complexity. 89-91 Pts
