Dark robe; its nose evokes at first fresh fruits aromas then develops towards a touch of spice. It is charming in their straight forward spontaneity. Its flavour is both firm and well-rounded, brought out by a good acidity and fine tannins.
The red Château Carbonnieux is the smooth result of an excellent blending of grape varieties from this region. The tannins are well balanced and silky in harmony with red fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry, cherry…) and reveal toasted notes from ageing in the finest quality French oak barrels.
“Ass-kicking, fabulous value once again from this estate (…). Abundant notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, flowers, creme de cassis and kirsch are all present in this full-bodied, opulent, dense, dark ruby/purple wine. (…)” WA 93 (The Wine Advocate | 205)
63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc
This quintessential Pauillac offers an intense and profound sensory experience of great complexity. Château Pichon Baron exhibits elegance, intensity and exceptional length on the palate. It is a wine that improves year after year and can age for over 40 years in the cellar.
Château Les Ormes de Pez is a harmonious, spicy and distinctive wine that reveals the authenticity of its terroir in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. It will charm you with its opulence, elegance and well-rounded structure. The palate offers robust tannins whilst retaining a smooth, fleshy side.
The 2017 Léoville Poyferré is very deep purple-black in color with super intense notes of freshly crushed blackcurrants, wild blueberries and Sichuan pepper with hints of lavender, baking spices and wood smoke. The palate is medium-bodied, firm and grainy with restrained, understated fruit and a long, mineral-laced finish. robertparker.com
