Pauillac Special Reserve 2018, Magnum, A.C. Pauillac
This Pauillac is produced by Domaine Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) using grapes collected from younger vines at Château Duhart Milon and Chateau Lafite Rothschild. This accessible Pauillac will drink well from a young age and offers charm and character after an hour in a decanter. The 2018 vintage is without doubt a modern classic, it’s overflowing with juicy fruit and soft melted tannins.

The 2018 vintage was generous and the resulting wines are bold and juicy. DBR Lafite have produced a rich yet precise Pauillac, similar in style to 2015 but with more oomph and juiciness. Lafite rarely does exuberance, but this is almost exotic with supple tannins and plush core. After a few minutes there’s cool blackberry coulis, inky cassis, blueberry, warm slate, fresh tobacco, cedar, violets and graphite. The palate is open and expressive with layers of juicy cassis and toasty spice. After a few hours this magnum will show very well, but it’s best years are yet to come.

Pauillac Special Reserve 2018, A.C. Pauillac£35.00 Buy DBR Lafite have produced a rich yet precise Pauillac, similar in style to the 1990 vintage. Lafite rarely does exuberance, true to form the aroma needs coaxing from the glass. After a few minutes there's cool blackberry coulis, warm slate, fresh tobacco, cedar, violets and graphite. The palate is compact and concentrated with fine tannins. You can feel the quality, but it is slightly reserved in the mid-palate. Whilst it offers very enjoyable drinking you can't help feel its best days lay ahead. It is very 'Lafite' in style and typical of the vintage.
