This wine remains one of the legends of Bordeaux..The creme de cassis, underlying floral note, full-bodied power, extraordinary purity, multilayered texture & finish of over a minute are a showcase for what this Chateau accomplished in 1982

98Wine Spectator

Glorious aromas. Dark ruby red. Wonderful perfumes of flowers, berry and lilac. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long and pretty finish. Balanced. Class in a glass.

97Stephen Tanzer

Wonderfully silky and opulent, with utterly compelling inner-mouth perfume and chewy depth. Showing spectacularly today and hiding its rock-solid underlying structure. The great finish shows extraordinary aromatic complexity and subtlety..

19Jancis Robinson

..Lovely, complete, sweet, absolutely classic Pauillac nose with minerals and some sweetness. Slightly dry on the end. But very classy. Beautifully scented. Really quite fresh, vigorous and youthful.

****/*Michael Broadbent

Magnificent, the higher than normal percentage (80%) of Cabernet Sauvignon very noticeable. Exactly two dozen notes from 1985 and not a dud among them.


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.”
