Chateau La Gomerie, St Emilion Grand Cru 2005
The 2.52 ha vineyard of La Gomerie is planted to 100% Merlot (old vines). Extensive work takes place in the vineyard. After harvest, the fruit is sorted three times, before and after destemming. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks. MLF and ageing in 100% new French oak barriques. Only 800 cases a year. "Dark and healthy looking. Very silky and perfumed and sleek on the nose. There has been an enormous amount of work to make this wine smooth and almost burgundian in its sweetness â€“ very distinctive. Could just do with a tad more juice in the middle. The nose is lovelyâ€¦"
