2019 Le Clos du Beau Père  (Pomerol) 91

Silky, fresh, soft and energetic, the cherries and plums are ripe, sweet and pure. And the earthy chocolate and spice note on the palate adds the perfect nuance that rounds things out in the supple textured finish. 90-92 Pts

Nice depth of color, the toasty oak rounds out the fresh plums, cherry and licorice notes. Supple textures, fruity and juicy with a nice hit of chocolate in the finish, this is a delicious, early drinking Pomerol. 89-91 Pts

It is quite easy to like this medium-bodied, elegant, charming, soft, early drinker, due to all its ripe red plums, silky textures and sweet, fresh cherries. You can drink this on release, or age it for a few years. 90 Points

2015 Le Clos du Beau Père  (Pomerol) 90

Medium-bodied and as fresh, sweet and bright as a high school valedictorian, this wine is all about dark, red fruit with plums and chocolate cake at its core. The experience culminates with licorice, vanilla and fresh, black raspberries. 89 - 91 Pts

2012 Le Clos du Beau Père  (Pomerol) 87

Medium bodied, slightly strict, especially for Pomerol, red plum filled wine is ready for prime time drinking with an hour or so of air. This is not a wine I'd age for long term development. 87 Points

From 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the wine reached 14% alcohol and will be aged in 100% new oak. Deep in color with toast, chocolate, coffee, plum and licorice, the wine is round, fresh and filled with ripe, juicy plum and dark chocolate. 88-90 Pts

2010 Le Clos du Beau Père  (Pomerol) 89

One of the best values in Pomerol today. Produced by Jean Luc Thunevin, the wine serves up fresh, black plum, mocha, earth and espresso. Medium bodied, round and reasonably open. If you like your wines young, you can enjoy this in its youth. Else, this should be better with a few years of bottle age. 89 Points

2009 Le Clos du Beau Père  (Pomerol) 90

Opulent, lush, forward style of Pomerol with perhaps a bit too much oak. But it's hard not to like all the plush, chocolate covered black cherries, fresh plums, earth and smoke. It's a good value for Pomerol, which is hard to find these days. 90 Points
