WOW: Wine of the Week

Pom-Poms for Pomerol!

Chandon Nautical Summer
This wine WILL make you stand up and cheer for Pomerol!  Clos Sainte-Anne is proof positive that there IS value in Pomerol!

Product Description

"Clos Saint Anne is the second wine of Château Moulinet.  It is 2km from the heart of Pomerol, on the route used by pilgrims on their way to Saint James of Compostela, than Château Moulinet is established, in the middle of its greenery frame. Its history is narrowly linked to the history of Pomerol, because it is one of the oldest estates in the area and also one of the largest.  In 1971, Armand Moueix took over the property. Since 2004, it has undergone unprecedented refurbishment both outside in the vines and inside in the cellars, including of course the vathouse. Here, the latest innovations blend with ancestral techniques, combining tradition and innovation. A straightforward and classic Pomerol wine, made by temperature-controlled fermentation followed by 12 months in oak barrels." - Winery Notes

Clos Sainte-Anne Pomerol 2010 Tasting Notes

This vintage reveals a beautiful deep purple colour. The bouquet develops ripe red fruits scents with light vanilla hints. The palate like the nose, expresses red fruits flavours enhanced by a round structure and giving way to an elegant finish.
