For our third Bordeaux (Regional Focus) Wine Therapy session, we head across the Gironde to the Right Bank, to explore the Merlot and Cabernet Franc-based wines of Pomerol and St Emilion with their plusher fruits and sumptuous velvety tannins.

Beginning with Teyssier (an impressive 94 point-scoring wine in 2018), the largest Grand Cru production in Saint Emilion, compared with another 5* vintage, 2016, from Le Prieuré. Sticking with 2016 we’ll move to biodynamic pioneers Gombaude Guillot in Pomerol before turning to the more hedonistically-styled 2015 vintage from Vray Croix de Gay. Then we will conclude with a pair of flagship wines from 2012, a year on the Right Bank that is increasingly growing in stature and acclaim: Firstly Jonathan Maltus’ flagship single vineyard Le Dome, with the greatest percentage of Cabernet Franc in Bordeaux, and finally L’Evangile, one of the greatest wines of Pomerol, positioned fascinatingly right next door to Cheval Blanc.

In our glasses:

 •  Château Teyssier, St Emilion, 2018 (50ml)
 •  Château Le Prieuré, 2016 (50ml)
 •  Château Gombaude Guillot Pomerol, 2016 (50ml)
 •  Château Vray Croix de Gay, 2015 (50ml)
 •  Château Le Dôme, 2012 (50ml)
 •  Château L'Evangile, 2012 (50ml)
