Chateau Haut-Pauillac Pauillac 2014

$39

Chateau Haut-Pauillac is, as you might expect, a Pauillac, and we’re excited to offer the 2014 vintage. Property of the Peyronie family, who also own Chateau Fondabet, this tiny property (2 hectares) is planted 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 2.5% each of Petit Verdot and Malbec. This wine sees 18 months of elevage with 15-20% new oak.

The 2014 vintage produced Bordeaux of the old-school Claret style, before the recent summer heatwaves became the norm. As such this is not a hard hitting wine, but one with finesse and savory delicacy. There’s plenty of inky fruit left, and the plums have melted into violets, dried roses, and a bit of smoked meat. The mouth is subtle and polished, without the exuberance of a young wine or one from a hot vintage. This is nearly mature, perfectly aged Bordeaux at an impressive price – we’d drink it over the next two years, but doubt any in our cellar will last that long.
