Pauillac

Pauillac is a commune in Bordeaux which is situated in the Medoc. Cabernet Sauvignon is the grape variety that dominates the wines here. Though it encompasses only 1200 ha, Pauillac boasts three of the five First Growths of the Medoc. These are Lafite, Latour, and Mouton-Rothschild.

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky and rich on the nose with dried herbs and integrated wood in a rather big yet focused style. Attractively complex on entry, this is smooth, rich with fruit, very polished with a hint of olive to the deep black currant fruit. A moderately powerful if very fresh this shows lovely fruit in the mouth and finishes with some extracted inkiness,... Read More

  • Chateau Pichon Lalande Pauillac 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Pencil lead, dried herbs, a hint of grass come together on the elegant and refined nose. In the mouth this is a bit tight but has a graceful feel to it. The ripe tannins are lacy but firm, and it remains transparent in the mouth, it's not built on power, but on purity, making it a bit underwhelming today perhaps but this has terrific potential o...

  • Château D´armailhac 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A bit funky on the nose with bushy dried herbs, gravel, and dark fruit aromatics that are attractively fresh. Tight on entry, this classic Bordeaux, a bit of over ripeness lends its truffle note here but this has structure and rich fruit, if being slightly one dimensional in the mouth today. The backend shows more intensity with black fruit th... Read More

  • Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Stemmy, herbal, and with classic black currant fruit on the nose this showily nicely nuanced and powerful yet with a sense of restraint, showing off late arriving coffee cream toasty oak spice aromas. Classic austere, restrained Bordeaux in the mouth, with excellent balance, this has good depth, though perhaps just a touch soft, there are nice l... Read More

  • Château Lynch-Moussas Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This property has produced an excellent result from the slightly sub-par 2006 vintage with good flesh, hesitant yet silky tannin, and excellent bramble berry, licorice and sweet cheery nose and flavor. An excellent effort all-round with good depth and a lengthy finish. Quite complex. Can age a few years more, but drinking well now. 90 points. Read More
