RATINGS

93Robert M. Parker Jr.

...notes of flowers and cassis, a layered texture that builds incrementally in the mouth and tremendous purity and depth,...

91Wine Spectator

Very solid, with a super beam of dark currant, tobacco and iron pushed by charcoal, melted fig and cocoa notes. This has a nicely rounded feel, but there’s plenty of grip in reserve.

90+ Stephen Tanzer

...Sweet, tactile, chewy and rich, with a firm edge of acidity giving cut and definition to the flavors of crushed cherry, redcurrant, minerals and spices. The building tannins come across as smooth..

17.5Jancis Robinson

...Velvety texture; minerally flavours. Pretty glossy and confident.

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.”
