Pomerol is a red wine appellation located on the right bank of the Dordogne River in Bordeaux, France. Unlike the classification systems used in St.-Émilion and the famous 1855 Classification utilized in the Haut-Médoc, there is no such system based on quality and prestige to rank the chateaus of Pomerol. Unlike the Cabernet Sauvignon-driven wines created in the communes situated on the Dordogne River’s left bank, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are the choice varieties in Pomerol. These red blends typically create wines with a plump, velvety mouthfeel and a notable plummy depth. Visit our Pomerol Wine Ratings for more information on the top bottlings.
