Weinwisser: "Dicht verwobenes Bouquet, dunkles Graphit, Sommertrüffel und edle Cassiswürze, dahinter verführerisches Veilchenparfüm und Brasiltabak. Am satten Gaumen seidige Textur, fein körniges Extrakt, leicht stoffig werdend, engmaschiges Tanningerüst und muskulöser Körper. Im konzentrierten Finale schwarzbeerige Konturen, tiefschürfende Mineralik und edle Salznote! Chapeau Frédérique!"
Suckling: "Very fine tannins with plum, currant and berry character. Medium body. Integrated and polished texture. Fine finish."
Decanter: "Deep and heady nose, then so light, vibrant and sweet on the palate. Mouthwatering acidity with fruit just shy of being high-toned, the freshLy picked strawberry, raspberry leaf and blackcurrant all bouncy and to the fore, while the silky tannins gently give a frame that slowly expands and widens. Backbone and structure from the fruit, a driving sensation and sense of intent with a hint of wood and spice on the finish, just stopping short of being rustic. Appealing Pomerol character and style with a long life ahead."
Neal Martin: "The 2021 Bourgneuf was picked September 27 to October 4. It has an attractive nose with bright black cherry and wild strawberry fruit and fine mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit laced with tobacco and thyme, building nicely toward a cohesive, sappy finish. The 2021 continues a fine run for this Pomerol estate."
Dunnuck: "The deep purple-hued 2021 Château Bourgneuf should be outstanding, and I love its purity of fruit. Assorted red and black fruits, cedar, tobacco, iron, and leafy herbs give way to a medium-bodied, nicely balanced, concentrated Pomerol that's going to shine for 15 years or more. It shows the style of the vintage in its almost mid-weight, pretty, floral style, yet this is rock-solid."
Falstaff: "Kräftiges Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, dezente Randaufhellung. Rotbeerig, frische Kirschen, ein Hauch von Mandarinen, etwas Nougat. Mittlerer Körper, süße Zwetschken, reife Tannine, mineralisch-salziger Abgang."
Wine Cellar Insider: "Black raspberries, espresso, dark cocoa, flowers and cherries come through on the nose and palate. The wine finishes with soft, silky, sweet, creamy, fresh red fruits. Drink from 2023-2040."
Galloni: "The 2021 Bourgneuf is a very pretty and promising wine. Naturally, the 2021 doesn’t have the richness of recent previous editions, but it largely compensates for that with its energy and focus. Hints of red berry fruit, orange peel, cinnamon and crushed rocks lift the finish in this stylish, midweight Pomerol. Bourgneuf has been one of Pomerol's under the radar gems for years. The 2021 is a bit understated at the moment, even for this wine. Let's see what happens."
