    122, The Wine Advocate

    This estate, which tends to turn out forward, soft Pauillacs, has made a firm, structured wine. The color is a healthy dark ruby with purple nuances. The nose offers up aromas of cassis, dusty, earthy notes, tobacco leaf, cedar, and spice. Medium-bodied, with excellent depth and ripeness, and the Cabernet Sauvignon component dominating its personality, this is a fine Grand-Puy-Ducasse that should be reasonably priced. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2015.

Red Bordeaux 2005 Les Forts de Latour

2 Case 6 150cl £1,950£1,850
  • The 2005 Forts de Latour (10,000 cases produced) possesses much of the same character as Latour, but sweeter tannins, more obvious and forward fruit, medium to full body, and a more seductive, plusher style, but not the great stature, richness, and architectural precision of its bigger brother. Nevertheless, it is a gorgeous Pauillac that should drink well for two decades or more Score: 92

    The light, fresh, sensual, round 2006 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux exhibits moderate levels of dark cherry and red currant fruit accompanied by background herb and spice characteristics. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.

Red Burgundy Remoissenet Pere & Fils 1959 Clos Vougeot

1 Case 3 150cl £3,250£2,850
  • Remoissenet Père et Fils
    1959
    Clos de Vougeot
    Grand Cru Red Magnum
    Score: 92
    Tasted: May 02, 2012
    Drink: Now
     
    Tasting note: A fully mature but not post-mature nose that is clearly very ripe offers up aromas warm earth, sous-bois, very subtle spice hints and an interesting sauvage note that also infuses the rich, full, delicious and relatively powerful broad-shouldered flavors that possess good mid-palate density and natural sweetness yet finish with outstanding intensity and just a bit of the classic austerity of a typical Clos de Vougeot. Note that because the reviews of this wine from 750 ml format (see herein) were recently released by Remoissenet, they actually drank as well as the same wine from magnum that had not been as pristinely stored.
