2014 chateau la violette, pomerol
Why We're Buying
Few wines from Pomerol can match the cachet of Château La Violette. Critics have made the Bordeaux red blend one of the highest-rated Pomerol wines, giving it prestigious industry awards year after year. This red wine returned 35.5% on investment from 2017 to 2021.
The 2014 La Violette put in quite a brilliant performance. It has a clean and precise bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, bay leaf and clove-like aromas that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, very well balanced and price with a harmonious, poised and sustained finish. This is a very classy Pomerol although it will require several years in bottle. This is one to watch. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. 2021 - 2050
