2020 Château Maillet  (Pomerol) 95

Deep, dark in color with its purple accents around the edges, the wine is sexy, silky, opulent and concentrated. There is a fabulous depth of flavor, velvet textured tannins and layers of black plum liqueur, chocolate and espresso that make an impression as the wine lingers and expands on your palate. 94-96 Pts

2018 Château Maillet  (Pomerol) 95

Truffles and chocolate with black cherries, plum, espresso and a hint of coconut on the backend grabs your attention. Opulent, hedonistic, sensuous and richly textured, this is just great now and after 5 years or so in the cellar. If you like hedonistic wines, this is for you. 95 Points

Plummy with overtones of vanilla, flowers, black raspberries and truffle, the wine is well-dressed, melodious, medium-bodied and serves up a respectable core of ripe, red fruits in the supple textured finish. 92-94 Pts

2017 Château Maillet  (Pomerol) 92

With a dark hue, the wine readily opens its big personality, which is rich with chocolate-covered cherry, smoke, licorice, earth and coffee bean. Medium bodied, finesse in style, the brushed cotton tannins and fresh, dark plums fill out the finish. 92 Points

2016 Château Maillet  (Pomerol) 94

This small production Pomerol is a sexy little beast. The silky, sensuous texture is the perfect back drop for all the ripe, luscious, sweet, plums, chocolate, flowers and earthy flavors that are all over the place here. This is pure hedonism. While it is difficult to find, Pomerol fans should be all over this wine. 94 Points

A smoky fruit basket of plums and cherries, a bramble of wild roses and a terrestrial sampler of aromatics hurdle right out in front. On the palate, glistening fruits and melted chocolate feel great as they linger. The wine was made from 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. 94 Points

2015 Château Maillet  (Pomerol) 93

Quite tight at the moment and rather unyielding, clearly there is good concentration of those ripe, juicy, fat, sweet plums and chocolate, but it is going to require at least another 5-7 years to open and flesh out. 93 Points

A new wine from Pomerol! Chateau Maillet, along Hubert de Bouard as consultant, has created a wine with winning character. On the palate, this wine is all about its juicy, fresh, plum liqueur, black raspberry, floral and truffle personality. The finish is like sinking into a fine feathered, hotel boudoir, quite silky and long with a line of dark chocolate on your pillow. There is no sensation of heat from the 14.5% alcohol level. The wine was produced from a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. 93 - 95 Pts
