100James Suckling

Full and dense on the palate, with a very tight structure. The tannins have a perfect polish to their density, and the finish is very intense, with wonderful fruit and truffle character.

99Wine Spectator

Brilliant, intense aromas of mineral, blackberry and currant, with hints of Indian spices and cigar box, lead to a full-bodied palate, with ultrafine tannins and a beautiful balance...

98Stephen Tanzer

...explosive in the mouth...wonderful sappy complexity of flavor and a thickness of texture that builds and builds toward the back...near-magical combination of power and refinement

19.5Jancis Robinson

.Intriguing – this is a wine that drags you in to the glass! Full, ample, wonderful grand spread across the palate. Such magnificence – rides over the palate. All lovely fine tannins and subtlety. No obvious alcohol –dense but not tricksy..

96Robert M. Parker Jr.

The wine is full-bodied and powerful with exceptionally high tannin combined with zesty acidity, and laser-like focus.


France, Bordeaux, Pauillac

Pauillac is Bordeaux’s most famous appellation, thanks to the fact that it is home to three of the region’s fabled first-growth châteaux, Lafite-Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild and Latour. Perched on the left bank of the Gironde River north of the city of Bordeaux, Pauillac is centered around the commune of Pauillac and includes about 3,000 acres of vineyards. The Bordeaux classification of 1855 named 18 classified growths, including the three above mentioned First Growths. Cabernet Sauvignon is the principal grape grown, followed by Merlot. The soil is mostly sandy gravel mixed with marl and iron. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that “the textbook Pauillac would tend to have a rich, full-bodied texture, a distinctive bouquet of black currants, licorice and cedary scents, and excellent aging potential.”
