Chateau Batailley 2002 波爾多五級莊
Chateau Batailley 2002 波爾多五級莊
89 points Neal Martin October 2009:
This has an intriguing bouquet (even more so, once I discovered its identity.) The nose is more Rhône-like than Bordeaux, with notes of Provencal herbs, fennel and thyme. The palate is full-bodied, a little sullen on the entry with a stout, much more Bordeaux-like personality than the nose (which may be a one-off.) Tobacco-laced blackberry and cedar-wood, finely balanced towards the finish. Moderate length. Fine. Tasted October 2009.
16.5+ Jancis Robinson MW, Farr Tasting, October 2009:
Drink 2009-18 Sweet and round and easy - good balance. Not the most intense. A little bit tarty next to Lynch Bages and Grand Puy Lacoste.
Chateau Croizet Bages 2013 波爾多五級莊
Chateau Croizet Bages 2013
產區： Pauillac, Bordeaux
品種：Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
歌碧莊園(Chateau Croizet Bages)位於法國波爾多Pauillac產區，1855梅多克評級列級酒莊第五級。莊園最初由巴斯(Bages)家族建於十六世紀，成為十七世紀Bage村最重要的莊園之一。十八世紀上半葉，克魯瓦澤(Croizet)兄弟購買下周圍相鄰的大量小塊葡萄樹種植園地，最終建成了Southern Pauillac地區的一座大型莊園。
Chateau d'Armailhac 2014 波爾多五級莊 (JS94)
Chateau d'Armailhac 2014
94 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2017:
This is very tannic yet polished and firm with currants, bark, and stones. Full-bodied and muscular and linear. Love the length. Beautiful. Try in 2020.
93 points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, February 2017:
The 2014 d'Armailhac is bright, precise and finely sculpted. Expressive red stone fruit, flowers, mint, chalk and citrus abound in this vibrant, beautifully delineated Pauillac. Open-knit and expressive, with good depth and silky tannins, the wine exudes class. The fresh, invigorating style is classic 2014. This is a lovely showing. Tasted two times.
91 points James Molesworth (Wine Spectator), Wine Spectator, February 2017:
Fresh and pure, but not shy on depth, offering an ample core of cassis and blackberry purée flavors. There's a fine chalky minerality throughout, but overall the structure is polished. Anise and spice notes add range. Best from 2018 through 2028.
Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse 2002 波爾多五級莊
Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse 2002 五級莊
品種：60％ Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot
88 Points Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) :
This is a mainstream, medium-bodied, pleasantly concentrated, charming, evolved Pauillac. Composty, earthy notes intermixed with cedar wood, black currants and cherries jump from the glass of this fragrant, supple-textured wine.
Château Grand-Puy Ducasse was classified 5th growth in the famous 1855 classification. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are planted on a gravel soil, typical of Pauillac. Thanks to impeccable harvesting and tailor-made winemaking, Château Grand-Puy Ducasse has all the excellent qualities of a legendary fine wine, renowned for aromatic complexity, glorious structure and ageing capacity, all true to the Pauillac’s style.
Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 2004 波爾多五級莊
Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 2004
72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc
Winemaker's Notes: The Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2004 presents a beautiful ruby red color. The nose is very dense and ripe, it offers a combination of blackberry and "pain grille" with added hints of spices. On the palate, this wine shows its harmonious structure. The tannins are well-balanced. This vintage has already started to express its personality but it will need few more years to show all its potential and developing as it does ever more complex flavours to give increasing pleasure.
91 Points Wine Spectator - "Subtle aromas of currant, berries and vanilla follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a long finish. Builds on the finish. Serious for the vintage. Best after 2010. 9,165 cases made. –JS "
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2004 波爾多五級莊 RP90/JR17+
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2004
90 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (171), June 2007:
Another sleeper of the vintage, this under-priced, beautifully made Pauillac exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with a sweet bouquet of creme de cassis, licorice, tapenade, and spice box. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannin and low acidity, it is a pure, expressive wine to drink over the next 12-15 years.
17+/20 Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, August 2005:
Liquid purple, relatively opulent on the nose. Quite deep and trying very hard. Attractive spiciness and no excess of dryness of tannin. Well managed and well balanced. The only reproach one might make is that it is a little mild and low key - but then so is Lafite. Quite a bit of weight. Very vigorous. Very good! Very fine tannins, there in abundance. It's worth remembering that as far as I know none of the merchants who tear round Bordeaux like me tasting wines en primeur taste blind. My note was made, exactly as it appears above (plus typos), on the basis of a sample of whose identity I was entirely ignorant. Drink 2013-20.
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2009 波爾多五級莊 RP92/JS91-94
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2009
產區 : Pauillac, Bordeaux
分級：波爾多列級5級莊 品種 : 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
92 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (199), March 2012:
Probably the finest Haut-Bages Liberal since the 1982, this beautifully rich wine has an inky purple color, a big, sweet kiss of creme de cassis, incense, some background spicy oak and forest floor. Its gorgeous fruit, full-bodied opulence, impressive purity, expansive texture and broad, savory finish make for a terrific wine to drink over the next 25+ years. Drink: 2012 - 2037
91-94 points James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, April 2010:
Currant and mint, with hints of fresh herbs. Lovely complex nose already. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, racy finish. Solid core of beautiful fruit.
Chateau Haut Batailley 2006 波爾多五級莊 (WA91)
Chateau Haut Batailley 2006
91 points Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (231), June 2017:
Tasted at a vertical tasting at the château. The 2006 Haut Batailley is a wine that I have always appreciated and at ten years of age, I have no reason to change that view. It has a such a lively and vivacious bouquet, especially when compared to the sultrier (if ultimately superior 2005 Haut-Batailley). The palate is underpinned by very fine tannin, the acidity quite noticeable but simply lending freshness and tension. There is a sense of this being a Pauillac that is tightly coiled and there is a lot of energy on the finish. This is a great success for the vintage, but if you can wait another couple of years, it should manifest more intriguing secondary notes and turn into a more interesting Pauillac. Tasted July 2016.
Drink Date 2018 - 2035
Chateau Lynch Bages 2006 波爾多五級莊 (RP94/NM93)
Chateau Lynch Bages 2006
94 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (196), August 2011:
This classic, powerful, firm Lynch Bages may be as concentrated (if not more so) than the 2005. It possesses a dense purple-tinged color, tell-tale cassis notes interwoven with hints of roast beef, savory herbs, spice box and subtle oak, good acidity and ripe tannin. The result is a full-bodied, fleshy Pauillac that will benefit from another 3-4 years of cellaring. It is capable of lasting 20-25 more years. Drink 2014-2039.
93 points Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, May 2016:
The 2006 Château Lynch Bages has another quite vivacious bouquet with lively black cherries, kirsch and wild mint aromas that do not hold back. I love the purity here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine supple tannin, well-judged acidity, a gentle grip in the mouth, and plenty of lightly spiced and surprisingly intense fruit on the bravura finish. The Cazes family oversaw a very sophisticated Lynch-Bages in this vintage that may well surpass many peoples' expectations.
Chateau Lynch Bages 2008 波爾多五級莊 (WE94/WA93)
Chateau Lynch Bages 2008
94 points Wine Enthusiast:
In the powerful style of Lynch-Bages, although perhaps less exuberant than usual. Instead the concentration comes from juicy fruit, which gives it the a softer quality. Even so, it still has solid tannins, dense texture and always the promise of good aging.
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
A sensational effort for the vintage, this textured, opulent, superb Lynch Bages is already strutting its stuff and should easily last for 20 years. Medium to full-bodied with an opaque dense purple color, notes of flowers and cassis, a layered texture that builds incrementally in the mouth and tremendous purity and depth, it can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more. Bravo!
91 points Wine Spectator:
Very solid, with a super beam of dark currant, tobacco and iron pushed by charcoal, melted fig and cocoa notes. This has a nicely rounded feel, but there's plenty of grip in reserve.
Chateau Lynch Moussas 2010 波爾多5級莊 NM90/JR16+
Chateau Lynch Moussas 2010
90 pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, February 2013:
Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London. The Lynch Moussas has a classic Pauillac bouquet of tertiary-driven black, brambly fruit, hints of sage and cedar coming forth with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied and fresh on the entry, slightly savoury, with hints of Italian cured meats towards the spicy finish. This is a very fine Lynch Moussas. Tasted November 2012.
16+/20 Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2011
16.5 Drink 2017-2030
Tasted 7 Apr: Very dark, concentrated ruby. Very fresh and minerally/pencil shavings on the nose. Soooo Cabernet! Nice succulent fresh Pauillac without enormous ambition but well balanced and should provide lovely medium-term
drinking. More transparent than most. Dry finish.
Tasted 17 Feb: 1.5km from sister property Ch Batailley. Not finished when I tasted it so I have given precedence to my impressions when I tasted it blind in early April . Very dark purple. Light green-peppery note. Sweet start and lacks the sheer concentration of some 2010s but pretty snazzy. Very sweet and flattering. (Score: 16 18-30)
Chateau Pedesclaux 2005 波爾多5級莊
Chateau Pedesclaux 2005
產區 : Pauillac
品種 : 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc
It was rated 18/20 points by Decanter Magazine and given five stars, the highest rating of all the vintage's Pauillacs (and scored on par with Mouton-Rothschild): "Very pure cassis. Hidden depths - unevolved but self-assured. Terrific intensity of flavour, power and length. Ripe fruit, supremely well-integrated tannin and acidity. A baby. Drink from 2015."
Reserve de La Comtesse 2010 二級莊女爵副牌(NM90)
Reserve de La Comtesse 2010
產區： Pauillac, Bordeaux
品種：51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot
90 Points, Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, February 2013
The Reserve de la Comtesse 2010, a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, has a refined bouquet of dark cherries, plum and blackcurrant fruit that you might describe as "neat and tidy". The palate is medium-bodied with quite a plush, generous entry thanks to that ripe Merlot. It is a forward wine for a 2010, very approachable with a fresh finish. It should drink well over the next 10 years. Tasted November 2012.
89 Points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (205), March 2013
If you're looking for something much more drinkable, then check out the blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2010 Comtesse de Lalande, the second wine of this estate. Sweet mulberry, black cherry, licorice, and forest floor notes dominate this medium-bodied, fleshy, soft wine, which should be drunk over the next decade.
90 points Wine Spectator (3/2013)
Vibrant and silky, this slides down almost too easily, with delicious red and black currant fruit laced with hints of anise, violet and black tea. A flicker of singed balsa wood keeps the finish going along.
91 points James Suckling (3/2013)
Very polished tannins that caress the palate. Full body. It's fruity, pretty and refined. The mineral and berry character comes through in a subtle way. Second wine of Pichon Lalande. Better in 2016.
