RATINGS

99James Suckling

Incredible iodine, oyster, currants, peat and cedar. Yet subtle. Full body, chewy yet polished tannins and great depth and complexity on the finish. I love the spice and blueberry character on the finish. Vibrant. A sexy style of Mouton.

97Vinous / IWC

An exciting, beautifully layered wine, one of the clear highlights of the vintage. A stunning interplay of crème de cassis, graphite, menthol, sage, mocha, dark chocolate & leather takes all the senses... speaks to a total sense of balance.

97Jeb Dunnuck

Crème de cassis, violets, lead pencil, and ample creamy oak notes all emerge from this incredibly sexy, concentrated 2014 that has a terrific mid-palate, sweet tannin, and a great, great finish.

96Wine Spectator

...a large core of pure, unadorned cassis, accented by notes of anise, plum cake, mint & bitter plum coulis... serious heft, supported easily by a riveting iron spine... superb length through the finish. A prodigious display of power & cut.

95The Wine Advocate

...gorgeous black cherries, bilberry, cedar & wilted rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky smooth entry. This is utterly seductive: a wine without a hair out of place... the precision & focus here is beguiling... cerebral...

18.5+ Jancis Robinson

Very intense nose... Quite dramatic and very Mouton with spiciness and ripe fruit plus acid and tannin... Exotic and pure Mouton...

REGION

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.”
