Jeff Leve (The Wine Cellar Insider)
Dark, in color, the wine exudes aromas of flowers, black raspberries, black cherries, chocolate, licorice and espresso. The wine is concentrated, lush, deep, creamy and fresh. The dark pit fruits are perfectly ripe. The tannins are silky. The finish is long, sapid and wide. The fruit really hangs in and you get to experience more of those opulent, chocolate-coated plums on the backend.
A very solid LBP with a full body and firm and juicy tannins. A little old school but it’s opulent and rather decadent with a fresh finish at the end. Shows excellent potential.
Showing beautifully, the 2022 Château Bon Pasteur offers up a ripe, sexy, medium to full-bodied style as well as classic Pomerol notes of red and black fruits, leafy herbs, chocolate, and spice. It has good mid-palate depth, building, ripe tannins, and the powerful, concentrated style of the vintage. It's going to need 5-7 years of bottle age, but it's a terrific wine in the making that's going to rival the 2018, 2019, and 2020. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that will spend 15 months in 70% new oak.
Deep garnet, opaque core, purple reflections, brightening on the rim. Fresh cherries, red berryish nuances, cool bouquet, delicate touch of fine oak. Juicy and elegant on the palate with good complexity, fine acidity, a touch of chocolate. Lingers long. Certain ageing potential.
The Wine Independent (Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW)
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2022 Le Bon Pasteur opens a little broody and closed, with notes of tar, black truffles, and damp soil, before opening out to evocative scents of baked plums and wild blueberries. The full-bodied palate is rich and impressively restrained, with loads of earthy nuances and a velvety textured, beautifully poised finish.
Lovely floral aromatics. Tannic and massy, although fully fruity and lively, this has both the structure and concentration of the vintage - with lashings of Pomerol power - with really quite present and upfront tannins as well as a nice juiciness and tangy bitterness to the finish. Despite the clear heft, there is freshness and cool blue fruit touches which stop it from becoming too much. On the riper fuller side, but still with definition to the finish. The structure is at the fore so covers some of the more friendly juicy aspects but it keeps its frame and drive. A yield of 34hl/ha.

Plenty of deep damson and black cherry fruits here, well controlled, followed up by coffee bean and cocoa powder. Pomegrantes and pink grapefruit add juice through the mid palate, but the heat builds, throwing things off course by the finish. 70% new oak.
Neal Martin (Vinous)
The 2022 Le Bon Pasteur has a very ripe, candied, quite floral bouquet that takes time to open in the glass. Touches of Christmas cake infuse the black fruit, opulent and generous. The palate is medium-bodied and shows more composure than the aromatics at the moment. The acidity is well judged and counterbalances the richness on the finish. Quite long and silky smooth, this 2022 continues the success of the more classically-styled 2021.
