2009 Château Samion Lalande-de-Pomerol

2009 Château Samion Lalande-de-Pomerol. Quite a nice wine. This mostly Merlot blend is showing very lush and ripe right now but still has good acidity to balance all that fruit. It’s the wine that is made by the winemaker of 44 years of Pomerol legend Pétrus, Jean-Claude Berrouet. That said, while the wine is deftly made, rival Pétrus it doesn’t. For food pairing, treat it like a CA Cab, so grilled meats are perfect.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
