SKU 1115 Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste Pauillac (Grand Cru Classé) 2018 $138

Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2018 is one of a series of great vintages. The blend has a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon (78%) whose character and charm so perfectly express the richness and quality of this distinguished terroir. This wine is deep magenta, intense and brilliant. The bouquet reveals aromas of ripe black fruits and liquorice, underlining the grapes' perfect maturity, whilst keeping a pretty freshness and good minerality. On the palate, the attack is precise, very dense and complex. This 2018 has a very fine balance combining power, elegance and complexity. It has a long, very aromatic and tannic finish. The whole emphasizing the great ageing potential of this wine. This vintage is no doubt one of the great success stories of the chateau and what more fitting way to celebrate this 40th anniversary!

SKU 1040 Château Fonbadet Pauillac 2016 $88

The nature of the Graves soils and colluviums of the Château Fondabet vineyards is therefore identical to the one of the Medoc Classified Grand Crus.

Dense, dark garnet colour, drawing on purple in its youth. The aroma consists of black and red fruits, roasting, licorice and leather. The Pauillacs are vigorous and tannic, which softens with age which allows the tannins to melt and give a nice and round structure.
