Woah Pacalet kills it again. Olive tapenade with the slightest touch of smoke on the nose leads to the intense taste of smoked meats, leather, blackberries. The finish lasts for a solid 2 minutes. On the nose this smells like a big Rhône style wine from Paso but then the whole cluster finesse I love from Pacalet’s burgundies really shines — 3 months ago
Year-end dinner with great friends at one of our favorite wine bars.
Tough finding a better way to wrap up an amazing dinner. Thank you for the belated birthday celebration.
Amazing mix of honey, fruit and floral flavors as well as the rich texture on the palate. Keeps you engaged fully and wanting more. — 3 months ago
Excellent modern style Pomerol with full of ripe red fruit and dark dried cherries with lots of tannin and slight hints of gravel. Beautiful Bordeaux but young yet goes marvellously well with a traditional beef Wellington. Cheers and happy New Years to all — 3 months ago
Deep ruby almost purple hue with secondary influences of garnet. Blackberry, creme de cassis, molasses, anise, vanilla, baking spices, earth, mushrooms, leather, and tobacco notes; soft tannins, smooth on the palate; everything is in balance to deliver a deliciously elegant complement to the meal. ABV 13%. Vintage 2005. #lesfortsdelatour #lesfortsdelatour2005 #pauillac #pauillacdelatour #medoc #medocwines #frenchieattitude #winedown2019 — 3 months ago
