Tasted at the London Pichon-Baron off-line. This is a great, great 2004 – a huge success for Christian Seely in a more challenging growing season than the ensuing one. A soaring blackberry, blueberry, cedar and wild strawberry nose with a touch of violets. Very fine tannins on the full-bodied palate, superb focus, elegant and feminine with a touch of burst toast and graphite on the finish. Great persistency. Quintessential Pauillac – at its finest. Drink 2012-2025. Tasted May 2009. (NM)
An intensely powerful, smooth wine, in a style that has an instant, sexy appeal. But it's not just surface glamour, there is a solid texture, layering the dusty tannins with rich black plums, red berries and vanilla.
The sleek texture of this wine is built on a confit of ripe fruit and satin-rich tannin. It's succulent, harmonious and potent, with berry-skin flavors. Rather than freshness, there's a green-herb and tart-cherry element that provides an edge to the flavor. A textural pleasure, and a grand wine to cellar ten years or more.
Sweet tobacco and plums with just a hint of prunes. Fascinating nose. Full body with velvety tannins, tangy acidity and a fresh finish. Just right now. Savory and delicious.
Deep ruby-red. Sexy, expressive nose melds currant, tobacco, coffee, mocha, leather and nutty oak. Rich, supple and sweet; a bit less dense than the 2006 but quite savory and enticing. This will evolve well in bottle but already offers considerable complexity. A great success for the year.
Lots of currant, licorice and light tar aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, yet refined and silky on the palate, with a lightly chewy finish. Needs time. Best after 2010. (JS)
Dark and lustrous. Round and fresh – a bit of Marmite (yeast extract). Lots of vigour...
