Reviews

WS
100
Wine Spectator
A magnificent wine that's ripe, powerful, seductive and amazingly deep. Massively concentrated and bursting with currant, plum, berry, cedar, chocolate and all sorts of exotic spice flavors, yet it keeps its balance, never going to excess. Lingers on the finish for minutes. A classic.

Wine Spectator
It has always been classic in quality. It's rich and fruity, with loads of currant, tobacco, smoke and new wood on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and an elegant finish.--1988 Bordeaux horizontal. Best after 2000.
 

Additional Information

Sub-Region :
Pauillac
Pauillac is maybe the best appellation of Bordeaux with three of the five Premiers Grands Crus Classés and 18 Grands Crus Classés. Some of the great names in the wine world—Château Lafite, Château Latour and Château Mouton-Rothschild—call Pauillac home. Pauillac wines are generally full bodied, tannic and acidic when young; after aging, they achieve an opulent bouquet with aromas of blackcurrant and cedar. View all our items from Pauillac
Region :
France
Though French wines are the highest valued wines in the world, esteemed wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne were only enjoyed locally until 150 years ago when transportation improvements made them widely available. French wine production is governed by a strict quality-control system, which regulates the grapes used in each region and classifies wineries according to an elaborate cru hierarchy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the important grape varietals with roots in French soil. View all our items from France
