Why to buy: Pomerol, the much-respected red wine appellation in Bordeaux, is home to the world-famous Chateau Pétrus and Le Pin. If you haven't yet heard of Chateau Le Moulin, this discovery wine can be your gateway to the region. Renowned for its clay- and gravel-rich soil, and healthy 35-year-old vines, Le Moulin produces gorgeous wines representative of the region's style – at a fraction of the price of its more-well-known cousins. With nearly a decade in the bottle, this wine drinks beautifully today, and will continue to develop well into 2020.
Nose, palate and pairing: This powerful wine reveals loads of dried herbs, ripe berries, and sweet cherries on the nose. Lush on the palate with juicy plum, roasted coffee and earth, this Powerol is luxurious and full of personality. We love this wine with roasted meats, from whole roasted lamb to a big, juicy steak straight from the grill.
