The wine is black in colour, with rich and complex flavors of black fruit (blackberry, black cherry, and blackcurrant), mocha and caramel. On the palate, the notes are powerful, while the wine is full-bodied. The finish is opulent with a long well-rounded persistence, and the wines are rich and elegant. This was a vintage that gives the best expression of the Pomerol terroir.
Chateau Le Bon Pasteur is owned by the Goldin Group, which is headed by Sutong Pan. Prior to that, the property was owned managed by Michel Rolland, and Dany Rolland, the famous Bordeaux consultants.
In 1978, the Rolland family continued the tradition and gave Chateau Le Bon Pasteur to their children as well, Michel and Jean-Daniel Rolland. This gave birth to the modern era for Le Bon Pasteur and the start of the career for Michel Rolland and Dany Rolland.
While Michel Rolland is known for being a master blender, (He is widely acknowledged as being the best blender in Bordeaux) he and Dany Rolland were the first consultants to advise growers on several vineyard management techniques that were considered over the top at the time.
