92Robert M. Parker Jr.

...crème de cassis, blueberry notes, background forest floor and cedar...tannins are sweet and the wine has an opulence and richness...

90James Suckling

A full-bodied red with chewy and polished tannins, lots of ripe fruit and toasted oak, though this turns slightly lean on the finish.

17.5Jancis Robinson

Serious, complex, mature bordeaux nose where the ripe fruit melds into meat juice, dark chocolate, black cherry and Asian spice. The tannin is absolutely ready to drink now, and it has a soft, easy finish.


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.”
