extraprima Pauillac | Bordeaux2018 93 – 94 CARRUADES DE LAFITE Pauillac Parker 92 – 94 | Suckling 95 – 96 | WeinWisser 17.5/20 About 30 % of the harvest at Lafite went into the second wine, taking place from the 17 th of September to the 5 th of October. 56.5 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 38 % Merlot and 5.5 % Cabernet Franc brought it to 13.9 % alcohol and age in 20 % new barrels. Massive, dark color. Cool, powerful and energetic, the Carruades smells full of fruit and depth. Compact, racy and with dark-berried midpalate, it shows very polished tannins and wiry acidity, very purely arranged and long. A highly distinguished Carruades of noble charisma. 31 93 – 94 CROIZET-BAGES Pauillac Parker 89 – 91 | Suckling 91 – 92 | Croizet-Bages was harvested late at the end of September until the 15 th of October. The half portions of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon age in 100 % new barrels. Dark colour. Full, sweet and massive, the Croizet-Bages has very profound aromas in the nose, with a tidy, concentrated fruit. Thick, full and firm, the Croizet-Bages shows a powerful, muscular tannin structure, lots of juice, great freshness and spiciness and is wellpacked with a dense smoth mouthfeel and good length. Powerful, pure and with a dark berry fruit component it shows a fleshy grip and a lot of body. 93 – 94 BATAILLEY Pauillac Parker 92 – 94 | Suckling 94 – 95 | WeinWisser 18/20 At Batailley you could harvest a pleasing 52 hl per hectare. 74 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 23 % Merlot and 3 % Petit Verdot were added to the assemblage. He has a dark, dense color. Rich, full-bodied and with dark-berry, highly concentrated fruity aromas of Batailley reminiscent of the outstanding 2009. With a lot of juice and energy, great depth and freshness, this pauillac convinces with ready to drink enamel, firm, meaty tannins and excellent length. With further maturity I trust the compact and harmonious Batailley quite a lot. 93 – 94 DUHART-MILON Pauillac Parker 93 – 95 | Suckling 95 – 96 | WeinWisser 19/20 The Duhart-Milon consists of 65 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 35 % Merlot with 14.2 % alcohol and ages in 50 % new barrels. Harvested from the 17 th of September to the 4 th of October. Black, massive color. Closed and tight in the nose, it presents itself pretty cool in the mouth, very compact and powerful. Firm and pithy in the mouth, it has a dark berry fruit and is unusually intense, rich and full-bodied for a Duhart. Very compact appearance with excellent presence. Mathilde Pfeiffer – Château Batailley

Bordeaux2018 | Pauillac extraprima 32 92 – 93 FLEUR DE PEDESCLAUX Pauillac Suckling 92 – 94 | The excellent second-wine Fleur de Pédesclaux underlines the future position of Pédesclaux in the Pauillac hierarchy. It consists of 80 % Merlot, 15 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 5 % Petit Verdot with 14.3 % alcohol and ages in 40 % new barrels. Black color with purple rim. Full, round and creamy it goes to the point, very racy and deep, yet balanced, a bit smooth and round, with lots of juice and richness. 92 – 93 GRAND PUY DUCASSE Pauillac Parker 91 – 93 | Suckling 93 – 94 The Grand Puy Ducasse has a massive color. Youthfully closed in smell, sweet and dull, it shows a concentrated fruit with little looseness. In the mouth, the Grand Puy Ducasse has a lot of core, remains dense and full on the palate, with nice spices, very good tension and freshness, long and persistent. Everything seems a bit stocky, but has good potential. 93 – 94 HAUT-BATAILLEY Pauillac Parker 92 – 94 | Suckling 94 – 95 | The Haut-Batailley consists of 59 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 41 % Merlot. It was harvested at 35 hl per hectare, has reached 14.3 % alcohol and ages in 60 % new barrels. The Cazes family gave the secondary wine the catchy name of Verso, which harmonizes very well with the colleague Echo of Lynch-Bages. Dense, sweet and offensive, the Haut-Batailley smells with a lot of intensity in the background. Significantly denser, deeper and more intense than usual, it has a lot of substance and power in the mouth. Taut and purely structured, with powerful tannins, it shows significantly more material than in previous vintages. With a fine red berry fruit in the finish, it remains long on the palate with a bit of slightly sharp acidity. While Haut-Batailley was previously known for his finesse and elegance, the Cazes family gives much more intensity of extraction to it. 92 – 93 LACOSTE-BORIE Pauillac Parker 88 – 90 | Decanter 90 | Lacoste-Borie as a cheap Pauillac always is a recommended buy. Since 1982, this second wine is produced at Grand Puy Lacoste. 61 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 31 % Merlot and 8 % Cabernet Franc were harvested at 44 hl per hectare, reached 13.9 % alcohol and age in 50 % new barrels. Dark colour. In the nose, the Lacoste Borie has a dark-berry fruit with lots of juice and richness, very clear and deeply staggered. Full of punch it starts in the mouth, fresh and juicy, showing a lovely body with balanced, firm tannins and very good length. Xavier Borie is convinced that he has produced the best Lacoste Borie so far. Congratulation! I agree. Xavier Borie and cellarmaster Christel Spinner 92 – 94 PAUILLAC DE LATOUR Pauillac Parker 90 – 92 | Suckling 91 – 92 Even the simple Pauillac of Château Latour is an excellent wine and is recommended to be enjoyed of fine dining restaurants. As much as 35 % of the production went into this third wine. It consists of 56.9 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 30.8 % Merlot and 12.3 % Petit Verdot with 14.1 % alcohol and ages in 30 % new barrels. Massive, dark color. Lush, offensively and slightly dull in the nose, it starts powerful and with punch in the mouth. Its clear, dark, dense fruit is driven by meaty richness and high extraction. Widely spread, dense and long, with generous structure and fresh acidity, this Pauillac shows the extraordinary potential of terroir of Château Latour. 92 – 93 LYNCH-MOUSSAS Pauillac Parker 91 – 93 | Suckling 93 – 94 | Lynch Moussas has sharpened its profile in recent years, as well as the sister properties Batailley and Trotte Vieille. All the Casteja family wines gained flesh and richness. The 2018 continues in this direction. It consists of 72 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 28 % Merlot. Tight, concentrated, powerful, with lots of pressure and massive tannis, the Lynch-Moussas was to convince on a brief tasting. Ratings in red and all descriptions by Thomas Boxberger © 2019.
