d'ARMAILHAC
Pauillac

RP - Another sensational effort from Philippe Dhaluin, the administrator of Mouton Rothschild, this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot shows complex floral notes intermixed with forest floor, camphor, black currants and mulberries that all jump from the glass of this aromatic style of d’Armailhac. This wine possesses very good acidity, a surprisingly higher percentage of Merlot than usual, but the quality is impressive, which should age nicely for 15-20+ years.

CLERC MILON
Pauillac

RP - This is another strong effort from the Mouton Rothschild stable and its excellent administrator Philippe Dhalluin. The 2012 Clerc Milon has an almost blackish-blue opaque colour, soft tannins, ripe notes of blackcurrants, liquorice and subtle background oak. There is an attractive floral, liquorice quality to the fruit. The wine is medium to full-bodied and beautifully pure with ripe tannin.

DUHART-MILON-ROTHSCHILD
Pauillac

RP - Dense purple, with classic notes of cedar and lead pencil shavings as well as gobs of back currants and liquorice, the wine has a full-bodied mouthfeel with fabulous precision and density. It also possesses a long, silky finish with moderately high tannins, but they are ripe and well-integrated. The wood is clearly pushed to the background in this dense, full-bodied Pauillac, which should drink beautifully for 30+ years.

PAUILLAC de
CHATEAU LATOUR

Pauillac

RP -
 The generic 2012 Pauillac de Latour (54.5% Merlot and the balance mostly the two Cabernet grapes) has consistently been one of the best-buy wines from the Latour stable for a number of years, and the 2012 comes across well. Deep ruby/purple with notes of minerality woven with blackcurrant fruit, it is medium-bodied, pure, elegant and best drunk over the next 10-12 years.

2012 £55.00 RP88

GRAND-PUY-LACOSTE
Pauillac

RP/NM -
 The 2014 Grand-Puy-Lacoste has a much more approachable nose than usual, vibrant with red cherries, wild strawberry and cedar aromas, backed up with mineral-soaked blackberry fruit. This gathers momentum wonderfully in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. The acidity is very well judged with purity and elegance on the finish, if not the structure or backbone commonly found is very top vintages.
 One to watch.

2014 £52.00 RP/NM92+

GRAND-PUY-LACOSTE
Pauillac

RP -
 Always a favourite among consumers, Xavier Borie’s is a fifth-growth Pauillac that consistently performs at a much higher level. The 2012 Grand-Puy-Lacoste has the classic, tell-tale crème de cassis as well as some bluer fruits and floral notes. Medium-bodied, its ripe tannin, beautiful fruit and low acidity give it an up-front appeal.

ECHO de LYNCH BAGES
Pauillac

2nd  Wine of Lynch Bages
The estate's top wine from the excellent 2012 vintage currently sells for  £78 a bottle! - so this represents real value!


Wine Spectator - Shows the vintage's austere edge, with alder and iron notes pinching a bit, but the core is solid, featuring dark plum, black cherry and currant notes that have meshed well. A bright sanguine thread runs through the finish.

PEDESCLAUX
Pauillac

 Wine Spectator - This has a brambly feel, with a cassis bush note running throughout. The core of succulent plum, blackberry and raspberry fruit is bright and defined. Shows lots of racy grip through the finish, complemented by buried minerality. An excellent effort and a real surprise; this has blossomed following the élevage.

2012 £27.00 WS90

PICHON BARON
Pauillac

 RP - The 2012 Pichon Baron (80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot) probably has the most saturated purple colour of the Pauillacs. Its structure is apparent, and the wine offers a wealth of blackcurrant fruit interwoven with liquorice, graphite, and background toasty oak. Full-bodied, opulent and moderately tannic, this wine is approachable now because of its low acidity, but promises to age beautifully for 20+ years.
This is another great classic from Pichon Baron.

RESERVE de la COMTESSE
COMTESSE de LALANDE
Pauillac

2nd  Wine of Pichon Comtesse
The estate's top wine from the excellent 2014 vintage currently sells for  £92 a bottle! - so this represents real value!


RP
- The 2014 Reserve de Comtesse de Lalande has a very fresh and vibrant bouquet with lovely cedar-infused black fruit that sings of Pauillac-ness (apologies for the made-up word!). The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and elegant with a keen line of acidity. This feels quite linear at the moment and perhaps the finish could have dealt more complexity commensurate with the aromatics. Yet there is bundles of freshness infused into this Deuxième Vin and there is a palpable salinity on the aftertaste.

2014 £28.00 RP/NM91
2017-30
