($25-$35) Deep red. Expressive aromas of plum, cherry, chocolate, leather and rose petal, plus a whiff of tobacco. Juicy, fresh and precise; not fat but youthful and juicy, with good ripe acidity and flavor intensity for the year. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins and very good length. Still, I'd give this a couple years for its tannins and acids to fully harmonize.

A dark ruby color is accompanied by crisp acids, sweet cranberry, black cherry, and darker fruit aromas, and a clean, pure, classically built, medium weight Pauillac. Still firm and tannic, this medium-bodied, elegantly wrought wine will benefit from another 2-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 12-15 years.

Wonderful aromas of raspberry and currant. Full-bodied, with refined, silky tannins and a long aftertaste. Beautiful and tender. Best after 2009. 15,000 cases made.

About This Producer


This chateau has undergone so many name changes within the last few decades that it's amazing it knows who it is. Nevertheless, the wines from this chateau, one of three Pauillac estates owned by the late Baron Philippe de Rothschild (the others are Mouton-Rothschild and Clerc-Milon) provide steady, classic examples of Pauillac power and purity. The blend at this estate, from 50+ hectares of vines, favors Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and so produces a less muscular Bordeaux.
