Waddesdon Pauillac 2015, by Chateau Mouton A.C. Pauillac
Our Waddesdon Pauillac returns from a two year absence with the wonderful 2015 vintage. First released in 2004, our Waddesdon Pauillac, produced by the world famous Chateau Mouton Rothschild, has proven to be one of our most popular wines. This rich Cabernet Sauvignon based Pauillac stays true to the house style and offers immediate charm and the ability to cellar if required.
After an hour in a decanter our Waddesdon Pauillac awakens from its slumber to reveal a nose of cassis, charred vanilla, cedar, black cherry and cedar. There’s evidence of the ripeness this vintage possesses with a plump fruit-forward entry to the palate which is tapered by fine tannins and well balanced acidity. It’s clearly Pauillac and true to the ‘house’ style – yet it’s accessible and attractive now and doesn’t require a decade patiently waiting in the cellar. Decant for an hour and enjoy this Pauillac with a roast beef.

Baron Nathaniel 2014, A.C Pauillac£32.50 More info & buy The nose offers ripe blackberry and toasty spice with a touch of minerality. This vintage is Cabernet Sauvignon based, which lends a firm backbone, quality tannins, and a core of blackberry fruit. This wine is surprisingly accessible now and drinking well, but will improve with a year in the bottle.
Château des Laurets 2015, A.C Puisseguin St Emilion£23.95 More info & buy chocolate shavings, tobacco, red cherry and spicy plum on the nose. There's a whiff of vanilla and a trace of new oak with mocha and spice, although this is more about the concentration of ripe fruit and a rich approachable style. The 2015 vintage of Chateau Les Laurets is certainly the best vintage since the wonderful 2010, and although this wine drinks very well after aeration it does possess the quality to warrant further cellaring.
