$556.93 / case(12)
The reserve speciale pauillac is made primarily from a blend that combines wines from properties in the pauillac appellation. It is created with the greatest possible respect for tradition in a similar style to the chateaux wines but for more immediate drinking. The summer of 2014 was rather gloomy characterized by a lack of sunshine and low temperatures but then beautiful weather arrived in the entire region in early september and remained for several weeks (until the end of october) saving the vintage. The indian summer gave the vines optimal ripening conditions and the grapes reached a balance between sugar acidity and phenols worthy of a great vintage. The cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc benefited from the superb late season and offered excellent quality in 2014. Tasting notes (at bottling): colour: intense ruby. Nose: subtle and elegant with scents of dried fruit (figs) black pepper and woody notes (cocoa powder).
