Description/ Tasting NotesBroody at first, as if a big "No Entry" sign was placed in front of the aromatics. But peeking underneath are wonderful blackberries, cedar and graphite aromas that sing of Pauillac's typicity. Palate is medium-bodied with impressive depth and concentration. Superb line of acidity and precision on the finish, fulfilling its potential shown from barrel.

Region Info/ Origin
Pauillac is home to several of the world's most famous wine and the region lies in an inauspicious small village in Médoc. Pauillac sprawls over the land size of about 8.8 square miles, is highly optimised for wine production and accounts for a rather disproportionate amount of fine, expensive wine in Bordeaux.
