Pauillac Wine

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.

  • Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 1989

    Snoothrank:

    Extraordinarily smooth going down. How I wish I had had more than one bottle! Enjoyed with a meal of Bracciole. Opened bottle 1/2 hour before decanting. Allowed to breathe 15 minutes before pouring for diners. Fruit was subdued, but there was zero harshness. Lovely, lovely wine. [94] Read More

  • Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 1983

    Snoothrank:

    Open knit, ripe, with a dark ruby color and a rich, weedy, black currant aroma, this rapidly evolving wine exhibits good concentration, a round, gentle texture, and a fine finish. It has reached full maturity. Last tasted, 3/89. Read More

  • Château Pichon-Longueville Baron Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 1988

    Snoothrank:

    The 1988 Pichon-Longueville promises to be one of the half-dozen superstars of this vintage. Surprisingly large-scaled for a 1988, with an oaky, cassis, and licorice-scented nose, it is deep in color, rich, softly tannic, medium to full-bodied, and should reach maturity early on, but keep for 15-20 years. Last tasted 1/93 Read More

  • Pichon Baron -Pack Owc 1990

    Snoothrank:

    One of the finest values in top-class Bordeaux has been the 1990 Pichon-Longueville-Baron. Until 3-4 months ago, the wine could have been purchased for under $400 a case, but that seems to have changed as the results of numerous tastings have pushed the price upward. I originally gave a one point preference to the 1989, and I am still convinced ... Read More

  • Château Mouton-Baronne-Philippe Pauillac 1985

    Snoothrank:

    The rich, complex, well-developed bouquet of oriental spices, toasty oak, herbs, and ripe fruit is wonderful. On the palate, the wine is also rich, forward, long, and sexy. It ranks behind both Haut-Brion and Chateau Margaux in 1985. I am surprised by how evolved and ready to drink this wine is. Readers looking for a big, boldly constructed Mout... Read More

  • Chateau Clerc Milon 1989

    Snoothrank:

    The 1989 Clerc-Milon is a wonderfully hedonistic wine. It is deep ruby, with an intense, roasted, smoky bouquet of plums and currants. This full-bodied wine is packed with fruit, is chewy and opulent as well as very soft and alcoholic. In spite of the precocious impression, the tannin levels are high, similar in fact to the 1986. For the first t... Read More

  • Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Soiled Label 1982

    Snoothrank:

    Tasted at least a half dozen times in 2002, I keep waiting for this wine to fall off. It has been prodigious from its early days, and in bottle continues to be one of the most satisfying wines of this great vintage, both intellectually and hedonistically. The color is still a dense, dark garnet/plum/purple. The nose offers spectacularly sweet... Read More
