Wine Journal

On Robert Parker’s web site, Neal Martin presents in his Wine Journal, his special selection for 2010 and in particular Jean Marie Bouldy’s Château Bellegrave 2005, my neighbor of Clos du Beau Père in the René sector in Pomerol.
There will probably be others included in his special selection and discoveries because he is writting a book about Pomerol.

He also mentioned La Petite Sibérie 2007 from Hervé Bizeul. It’s worth checking out all the wines he liked, it’s incredible.

And just for pleasure, his comment – already old, on Blanc de Valandraud 2006 N°1 :

"Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. An attractive nose here: honeydew melon, cooking apple, apricot with well-integrated new oak. Could this be one of the Saint Emilion whites? The palate is medium-bodied, well balanced with finely integrated new oak, pretty, tropical flavours: mango, star fruit, pineapple with just a faint tang of lemongrass right on the finish. Very fine. Tasted January 2010." N.M. 91 points
