2019 Ch. La Cabanne Pomerol
En Primeur product: order now for arrival mid 2022. A superb showing from this classical and yet "under the radar" Pomerol. It hails from a very good spot, which has been under vines since the Gallo Roman era. It now has the benefit of modern winemaking equipment including stainless steel fermentation vats, having been refurbished after a fire. With lush black fruit and umami complexites even now now, this delicious Pomerol will also cellar for a decade or more after arrival. To remove foreign exchange risk for our customers, listed prices are all up final landed cost including GST. Payment is due on invoice/order placement, with delivery in mid 2022.
Although vines have been grown here since Gallo-Roman times, the name goes back to the 14th century, when serfs who worked in the vineyard lived in cabins (“cabanes”). A dynamic estate, Château La Cabanne regularly updates their winemaking equipment (which was totally replaced in 2011 after a fire destroyed the vat room), while gradually restructuring the vineyard. Viticultural practices combine both a traditional and modern approach, and are done in keeping with the appellation’s highest standards. Château La Cabanne is a well-balanced wine, with an intense, complex nose showing hints of blackberry jam, raspberry and toasted bread. Silky tannin on the palate provides volume and density, and there is a long aftertaste. Undergoing rigorous blending, La Cabanne ranks among the greatest Pomerols.
What The Critics Say
92-94/100 Vinous, Neal Martin
"The 2019 La Cabanne, which is pure Merlot, has a sensual bouquet with raspberry and wild strawberry aromas, touches of rose petal and just a little dark chocolate. The palate is medium-bodied with very lithe tannins, focused and nimble, then gaining weight towards the precise, dark chocolate-tinged finish. This is one of the finest La Cabannes that I have encountered out of barrel. This is a great wine from François Estager. Tasted twice with consistent notes." Drink 2024 - 2050
91-93/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
"The 2019 La Cabanne is deep and resonant in the glass. Black cherry, plum, leather, spice, lavender and espresso confer darkness to this mid-weight yet broad Pomerol. La Cabanne is decidedly somber in this tasting. The richness and pure power of Merlot come through loud and clear here. Tasted two times."
91-93/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Lis Perrotti-Brown
"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 La Cabanne sashays out of the glass with fragrant notes of kirsch, black raspberries potpourri and fertile loam over a core of Black Forest cake and warm plums. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is juicy, softly texture and already very expressive, offering tons of freshness and a provocative mineral note on the finish."
