Classified as a Fifth Growth in 1855, is a close neighbor of Château Mouton Rothschild. A blend of 50% Cab Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 12% of Cab Franc & 2% Petit Verdot. A wonderful wine with the higher % of Merlot than usual, ripe fruit, citrus and spice aromas. Cherry, plum and currant flavors with a nice mineral edge, creamy soft tannins, lingering finish ending with a earthy mineral tang. Very Nice!

Weak showing. Very industrial character. Snow goose medallions were the highlight.

Nose of cedar, smoke, and dark fruit. Black cherry on the palate, sweet silky tannins. Mod-weight with only modest concentration but a nice, lingering finish. Lovely mature, accessible Bordeaux that’s easy to enjoy but won’t blow you away...

Black fruit on nose leather and dust. Blackberry and cassis with a hint of mint and walnut. Finish is bright and perfumey with lasting jam with a touch of pyrazines that would love some food. Tannins are soft but prominent

Strong showing from this young Pauillac. Surprisingly elegant and pretty at this stage. Cassis, red currants and tobacco with great freshness on the palate. Wonderful herbal component with just a touch of brett. Very classic expression.

Classic Pauillac from an epic vintage. Needed time to open but was realty singing after about an hour. Beautiful high time floral notes with earth and power.
