Château Pauillac

Château Latour

Les Forts de Latour Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Classic Bordeaux on the nose with cedar and black cherry. Nice oak and tar with integrated tannins that remain but are nearing the downward slope in the cellar. Less intense than the Grand Vin but a nice Latour nonetheless. — 10 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2007

This wine has aged so beautifully! Smooth tannings, subtle aromas of black cherry, plum, black currant, pencil shavings, dried herbs, chocolate, vanilla, caramel and a hint of mentol.
A wonderful wine for a special occasion.

Château Batailley

Pauillac Cabernet Sauvignon 1975

Delectable Wine

The 1975 Batailley is a vintage poured at a vertical at the Pauillac estate with Frédéric Castèja a few months earlier, but perversely, this bottle shows better. There’s a strong marine influence on the nose, and kelp and crustacea intertwine with slightly rustic but attractive black fruit, austere, compared to recent vintages, albeit typical of that period for Batailley. The palate is gentle, perhaps a little angular, though this bottle exhibited a touch more black fruit on the finish to counterbalance its obdurate tannins, a trope of the 1975 Left Banks. The aforementioned vertical will appear this year. (Neal Martin, Vinous, April 2024)

Château Haut-Batailley

Pauillac Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot Blend 2020

Classic BDX . Cassis and thyme on the nose. Cedar and hints of graphite in the background. Lots of acid with medium tannins which shows its youth but also it’s backbone for aging. Fantastic young Bordeaux , great structure and balanced. 13.5% — 13 days ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

1989 vintage. Tasted 5.5.23 (9.5), 4.4.23 (6 different btls-avg 9.4) and 12.9.22 (9.6). Above average fill for the age and impressive cork (about 70% saturated). Decanted and tasted over the course of two hours. Threw a decent amount of powdery sed. Medium nose slightly muted for the first 10 minutes or so but then came roaring to life. Yes, still the hallmark blueberries and cocoa powder along with a dash of raspberry but bigg graphite with this bottle. Drank consistently great for 1.75 hours, then seemed to lose a little steam at the very end. Not improving but still think cellar dwellers need to be popped in the next five years to enjoy the magic before it fades. 3.28.24. — 23 days ago
