This wine was a wow in today's tasting lineup at Brix. It is rich and juicy, with soft tannins, drinking amazingly well immediately after we pulled the cork.
Nice fruit forward Pomerol with loads of Merlot fruit and a delightful, perfumed element to it. This is rich & powerful wine with good balance with a bouquet of black current, mint and pretty earthy tones. It comes from a highly respected small seven-acre vineyard located in the heart of Pomerol. This wine is always a crowd pleaser and great for this price range.
Great with a wide range of dishes including lamb chops, roasts and chicken.

Coming from a tiny 3.4-hectare vineyard and based on 90% Merlot and 5% each Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2020 Chateau Lecuyer has a great bouquet of cassis, blueberries, iron, and smoked tobacco. Medium to full-bodied and elegant, with remarkable purity and a lively spine of acidity, it's a beautiful Pomerol to enjoy over the coming 15+ years. Best After 2023.
