2020 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 92

Floral in character, with additional nuances of earth, cherries, plums, licorice and kirsch start things off nicely. The wine is sexy, silky, soft and sweet, with a refined textural finish. Since 2015 La Cabanne has been upping their game and the 2020 is no exception. 91-93 Pts

2019 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 92

Silky, sexy and earthy, with velvet tannins, medium-body and that ocean of ripe, luscious, fresh plum essence with chocolate that you find in Pomerol. Give it 6-8 years before popping a cork and enjoy it over the next 10-15 years after that. Since 2015 La Cabanne has been getting better and better. 91-93 Pts

2018 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 92

The flowers, truffle and dark cocoa notes show nicely on the nose. Silky, soft and loaded with ripe, juicy, fresh, sweet, earthy plums and freshness on the palate, give this a few years in the cellar and enjoy it over the following 15 years or more with ease. 92 Points

2017 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 91

Medium-bodied, fresh, round, soft and forward, this 100% Merlot comes on strong with a nice blast of licorice, sweet, dark cherries, earth and flowers. All of this makes for a very nice Pomerol. 91 Points

2016 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 92

It is easy to find all the ripe, sweet, round, fresh cherries surrounded by cocoa, black plums and earth on the nose and mouth. Soft and smooth, this will start showing really well with 3-4 years of age. 92 Points

I like this even more than the last time I tasted this, due to all the ripe, polished, lushly textured, dark red fruits, licorice, flowers and earth. The wine is soft and polished, with a fruity, silky finish. 92 Points

Chocolate-covered plums dusted with cayenne arrive on the palate, they bring along flowers, black raspberry and a little more spice on the nose. Medium bodied with a freshness, this wine was made from a blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc and is 14.8% alcohol with a pH of 3.65. 90 Points

2015 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 92

At just 5 years of age, this is drinking great! Medium-bodied, soft, round and lush, with a beautiful mix of wet earth, cherry and plum on the nose and palate, ending with silky textures and earthy pit fruits. I am sure this will be enjoyable to taste for at least another 15 or more years. 92 Points

Much better from bottle than it was in barrel, which is always a good thing. Right? Medium/full bodied, with soft, elegant textures and a beautiful purity to the plums and cherries, that are perfectly blended with all the wet earth, thyme and cocoa you could ask for. The finish is soft, fresh and filled with ripe fruits. 92 Points

A bowl of sun-ripened, hand-polished plums adorned with spice and cherry notes, this wine exhibits earthy complexities, soft tannins and freshness, making this the best vintage of La Cabanne I have ever tasted. 90-92 Pts

2014 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 88

Pretty wine, ready to go, with soft, sweet red fruits and earthy accents. The wine is on the light side, with good freshness, but not a lot of weight. Drink this over the next 5 - 7 years or so is the best bet. 88 Points

Blending 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc produced a medium bodied, slightly firm, classic styled, cherry and plum dominated wine with a wild strawberry note in the almost, crisp finish. 89 Points

2012 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 90

Ready to go, the wine has put on weight in the bottle. Now you find an elegant, medium-bodied, soft, chocolate-covered dark red pit fruit nose and palate with a supple, silky-textured finish. 90 Points

2011 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 86

Medium bodied and short, there is ample red plums, spice and earth, but the finish shows tart flavors and some dryness in the end notes. From a blend of 92% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, drink this wine young. 86 Points

2010 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 89

Medium-bodied, fully mature, soft, elegant-charmer, with a deft touch of cherries, plums, wet earth and a hint of truffle on the nose and palate. Instead of density, you find a light, refined, earthy, plummy wine that is fully ready to go. I'd opt for drinking this over the next 5 years or so for maximum pleasure. 89 Points

Medium bodied, easy to drink, red and black plum filled wine with a slightly rustic finish. The nose, with its floral, cocoa and fresh fruit aromatics is more interesting that what you find on the palate. 88 Points

2009 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 90

Time has been good to this wine. Showing much better than it did 7 years ago, today, you find a mature, silky, elegant, medium-bodied, earthy, plummy wine with a bit of truffle and a soft, refined finish. This is not a long ager, so I would opt for drinking this over the next 7 years or so. No decanting needed. Just pop, pour and enjoy. 90 Points

Black raspberries, wild strawberry and herbs, medium bodied and soft, but not silky, with a cherry dominated finish. This is best enjoyed in its youth as the wine does not have the stuffing for long term aging. 87 Points

2006 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 89

This has developed better than expected. Medium-bodied, elegant, soft and refined, you find flowers, earth, fennel and red fruits on the nose. Light in weight, the soft-textured red fruits finish nicely on the palate. This is close to fully developed. 89 Points

2005 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 87

Mature, easy drinking, plummy wine, with a light truffle accent to the red plum core of fruit. Round, with a bit of rusticity in the texture, this medium bodied wine shows a touch of green leafy notes in the red berry finish. Drink this over the next few years, as it is only going to fade from there. 87 Points

2001 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 88

Much better than the previous bottle, this is quite nice with all the ripe, red fruits, herbs, tobacco leaf and earthy nuances. Medium-bodied, soft and fully mature, the finish combines sweet and tart red fruits. It is time to drink this if you are sitting on any. 88 Points

Medium bodied, light in color, with a bright, red berry center of fruit, paired with spice and earthy aromatics. Simple and already mature, this is not a wine for further aging, as more time will only lighten the fruit, and exacerbate the acidity. 86 Points

2000 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 89

With its truffles, tobacco leaf, plums and red cherries, soft textures and medium body, this is fully ready to go. Popped and poured, I'd opt for drinking this over the next 3-5 years. 89 Points

1989 Château La Cabanne  (Pomerol) 84

Bricking in color, the perfume is the best part of the wine due to its blend of tobacco, herbs, forest leaf and smoky red berries. Medium-bodied, with a red cherry dominated finish that was accompanied by metallic notes. Drink this sooner than later. 84 Points
