This is a wine with a great aromatic freshness with fine, delicate aromas.
A distinctive sensation of fullness on the palate, with great complexity, lots of power and richness, harmoniously combined thanks to the concentrated, mellow tannins.
The finish is very, very long, pleasant and full-bodied.
The key word is balance – the ideal integration of the wood, the dense, stimulating tannins, length and density.
12/06/2009 - Wine Advocate ( Neal Martin ) Note : 94 / 100 Tasted single blind at Southwold. This does not quite have the same lift on the nose as the Les Forts or Carruades but with aeration I am certain it would have offered more. Aromas of macerated black cherries, boysenberry and a touch of graphite but always remaining tight. The palate has good depth, nice grip but not over-bearing. There is certainly a lot of unresolved new oak here and this certainly needs time with a slightly furry finish with notes of cedar and blackberry with just a touch of tar. Brooding intensity – one for the cellar (perhaps akin to the ’90?) Drink 2015-2030+. Tasted January 2009. 94+

Pauillac is situated in the heart of the Haut-Medoc and is arguably the most famous of the left bank appellations, not least because 3 of the 5 "first growth" chateaus are located here. The starting point for Pauillac's outstanding quality is the soil - largely free-draining gravel, which is ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Although the Chateaux have become increasingly adept at creating their own individual character, nonetheless there is still an identifiable Pauillac style: full, rich and characterized by the classic cassis and cedarwood aromas of oak-aged Cabernet Sauvignon
