It’s hard to argue with Pauillac. This region is home to the largest number of the world's greatest Cabernet blends in the world. With neighboring producers fetching 300+, it’s shocking that this tiny property is still producing excellent wines at an extraordinarily good price. Absolutely perfumed. Showing development with tertiary notes of dried herbs, warm baking spices, and deep dark fruits. This is showing exceptionally right now. Tannins that are softened with age, this is a startling surprise bottle that is too good to miss.

Somehow, we have been able to offer several vintages of this charming Pauillac for under $30 now. The château is family owned and has only 11 hectares planted, and offers true Pauillac quality for a great price. It is showing rich red fruits, graphite, and smoke, but with totally mellow tannins and a nice cherry kirsch finish. This is definitely one of the better deals on aged Left Bank red right now.

READY TO DRINK! This Pauillac is a wine that is sure to impress, and still a steal at $29.99. Delicately smokey, like you've just walked past a cigar shop and are half way down the block before you realize it. Structured, rich in dark fruit, and it goes down easy. This is now my go-to Medoc in this price range.
