Pauillac Wine

Pauillac

Pauillac is a Bordeaux appellation created in 1936,although there has been viticulture here for centuries,for red wines from the commune of that name plus a few clearly defined plots outside it.This is located on the east side of the  Medoc peninsular about 25 miles north of the City of Bordeaux.. Cabernet Sauvignon is the grape variety that dominates the wines here. Though it encompasses only 1200 ha, Pauillac boasts 18 of the classed growths of the 1855 classification including three of the five First Growths of the Medoc. These are Lafite, Latour, and Mouton-Rothschild.

  • Château d'Armailhac Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2005

    Snoothrank:

    The 2005 d'Armailhac has black fruit on the nose and upon entry the palate receives a panoply of blackberry and soft tannin. The balance in this wine is superb, with just a touch of Pauliiac austerity (pencil-lead). Finish is long and satisfying. Will last about 5 more years at least. 91. Read More

  • Château Batailley Pauillac 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The 2006 Batailley has a combination of wet forest floor and sour cherry on the nose (perhaps crushed cranberry) with a hint of crushed nettle. Entry is filled with gentle, silky - yet still quite prominent - tannin; with more cherry, vanilla,and pencil lead. The wine could last up to a decade longer. Quite fine. 90. Read More

  • Château Lynch-Bages Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 1996

    Snoothrank:

    Terrific red plum color in the glass. Some olive hint in the nose. Very good on the tongue. Just the slightest suggestion of black fruit. Then less fruity things--a bit of leather, some dustiness. Completely resolved tannins. Minimal acid. Fairly short finish, This one, while quite enjoyable, might be a bit past its peak. Read More
