RATINGS

92-94Wine Spectator

Super aromas of currants, berries and minerals, with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with a lovely core of fine tannins and a medium to long finish.

90-92Stephen Tanzer

Very ripe but reticent aromas of blackcurrant, black raspberry, dark chocolate, flowers and minerals. Denser, sweeter and more chocolatey...

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.”
