2013 L'Expression de Pauillac
2013 L'Expression de Pauillac
We opened a bottle of the 2013 L'Expression de Pauillac recently as part of a team tasting of drinking Bordeaux, and were reminded what a cracking glass of claret it is. We secured a small parcel under the premise that we would not name the château where it comes to protect the price perception of the brand. However, we can guarantee it comes from one of the very top châteaux in this esteemed region, and is made by the same winemaking team as the château's Grand Vin (normally £3,000 a case) - usually from grapes surplus to requirements in a large vintage. This wine is at only £25.95 per bottle and sourced solely from the estates vineyards. Quite some pedigree here.
Our notes from the tasting room:
L'Expression de Pauillac certainly says it all here - this cabernet-driven wine is a very classic (and classy) example of the appellation. Appealingly perfumed and elegant in style, it delivers pure cassis fruit aromas and a touch of exotic spice. It is luscious on the palate with an almost creamy texture, and great structure. With eight years ageing already, and character to drink well until 2026, this is a unique opportunity to taste a wine of this pedigree, that costs a twentieth of the Grand Vin.
