Chateau Bertineau St-Vincent, Lalande de Pomerol 2003. Rollands greatest gift, and why he is a living legend in the wine world

Bertineau st Vincent 2003, Robert Parker, 87 points
Chateau Bertineau st Vincent 2003 is his ability to access a producer's vineyards and barrel samples and quickly determine their strengths and weaknesses. Basically, he makes the ordinary extraordinary. This same rigour is applied to his own properties.

Tasting notes, Robert Parker, 87 points
Sweet cherry, dried herb, caramel, and vanilla scents jump from the glass of this expansive, elegant, medium-bodied effort. Drink this seductive, fruity Lalande de Pomerol
Bordeaux-based winemaking consultant Michel Rolland advises at over 150 wineries in 14 countries and is one of the most brilliant winemakers in the modern world.

THE BON PASTEUR VINEYARDS BOUGHT BY JOSEPH AND HERMINE DUPUY IN THE 1920S, WERE MADE UP OF SMALL PLOTS FROM THE THREE COMMUNES OF POMEROL, SAINT EMILION AND NÉAC.
AT FIRST, ALL THE WINES PRODUCED AND VINIFIED IN THE SMALL CELLAR IN POMEROL, NEXT TO THE MODEST HOUSE WERE CALLED BON PASTEUR BY JEAN-DANIEL ET MICHEL ROLLAND’S GRANDFATHER.

IT WAS ONLY IN 1978 THAT THE NAME BERTINEAU SAINT VINCENT WAS PATENTED FOR THE WINES PRODUCED IN THE LALANDE DE POMEROL APPELLATION.

BERTINEAU IS THE NAME OF THE AREA IN THE COMMUNE OF NÉAC WHERE THE 5.60HA OF VINES ARE SITUATED.
SAINT VINCENT WAS A 4TH CENTURY MARTYR WHO IS THE PATRON SAINT OF WINEMAKERS AND PROTECTOR OF THE VINE, WINE AND THOSE WHO DRINK IT. HIS DAY IS CELEBRATED ON 22ND JANUARY.
NUMEROUS SAYINGS ILLUSTRATE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SAINT AS A PROTECTOR OF VITICULTURAL-RELATED ACTIVITIES AND THE CONTINUOUS DAILY RISKS INVOLVED. FOR EXAMPLE :
IF THE WEATHER IS GOOD ON ST VINCENT’S DAY, THERE WILL BE LOTS OF WINE FROM THE VINE SHOOTS

THUS “PROTECTED”, THE BERTINEAU SAINT VINCENT GRAPES ARE STILL VINIFIED IN THE BON PASTEUR CELLARS, WHERE THEY ARE TREATED WITH THE SAME CARE AND THE SAME SELECTION IS MADE UNDER THE WATCHFUL AND EXPERIENCED EYE OF THE HOUSE OENOLOGIST, MICHEL ROLLAND.

CHÂTEAU BERTINEAU SAINT VINCENT IS A WINE WITH THE TRUE CHARACTER OF THE LALANDE DE POMEROL APPELLATION, WHICH COMES FROM A GOOD TERROIR, AGED IN ONE-YEAR OLD BARRELS, THE YOUNGER BROTHER OF THE POMEROL, LACKING A CHATEAU BUT NOT LACKING IN CHARM.
