RATINGS

94James Suckling

Lots of mineral, crushed stone, iodine and graphite with blackcurrants and blackberries that follow through to a medium body with ultra fine tannins that are ever so polished and give length and energy...

92Wine Spectator

Fresh and juicy, with flavors of red and black currant preserves streaming through, lined with light graphite and iron notes. The nicely focused finish has mouthwatering bay leaf accents and savory hints as the fruit plays out.

92Vinous / IWC

...a compelling, sumptuous wine... Black cherry, graphite, licorice, spice and leather all meld together in the glass. Floral overtones develop nicely with time.

92Jeb Dunnuck

...gorgeous Pauillac nose of blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings, graphite, tobacco, and damp earth. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully textured...

16.5Jancis Robinson

Very forward, come-hither and also energetic... Pretty intense, sumptuous nose. Neat, dry palate that's distinctly lighter-bodied...finish is really something. It just goes on and on!

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.”
