Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Dark ruby/purple-tinged with notes of pure cassis, tobacco leaf, spice box, and some background mineral characteristics, the wine is medium-bodied, revealing good ripeness, sweetness, and overall fine balance with good acidity and ripe tannins.
Store horizontally, keep out of direct light and strong temperature fluctuations. This wine will evolve in bottle for the next 10 years.
31/07/2006 - Wine Spectator ( James Suckling ) Note : 92 / 100 Blackberry and licorice aromas, with full body, very fine tannins and a long finish. Very silky. So much for jammy wines in 2003. Very fresh and refined. Best after 2008. 15,555 cases made.

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 growths are in the Pauillac appellation. 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
