The 2020 La Patache was picked September 10–25 at 35hl/ha, and matured in 30% new oak. It takes a few minutes for a little reduction to blow off, but once it does, there are scents of plum jam, allspice and touches of fireside ash, all displaying fine definition. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, malleable tannins, and slightly lower in acidity compared to its peers, which renders it more approachable. Maybe it will firm up a little during its élevage. Displaying fine balance toward the finish and a judicious amount of pepperiness that keeps you coming back, this is a well-crafted, easygoing Pomerol.
The Wine Advocate
Deep purple-black colored, it soars out of the glass with energetic scents of freshly crushed blackberries and black raspberries, Morello cherries and violets, plus hints of star anise, garrigue and black olives. The medium-bodied palate has a great intensity of refreshing, crunchy black fruits, supported by beautifully ripe, rounded tannins and finishing long and perfumed. Superbly poised and stylish—a real head-turner!
