Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Wow. Very dark rubi rose, slightly bricky at the rim. Nose of blackcurrant, cedar, dark cherries and a hint of spices. Very elegant, complex and long in the mouth, one of the fines Pauillacs we had in a good deal of time, and we had some :) this is an outstanding bottle by all means. Enthusiastically recommended. — 4 months ago

Hell yes.

Château Brane-Cantenac

Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Pretty, pretty, pretty good. Blackcurrant, cedar, vanilla, violet, big berry fruit, some herbal tea, black tea, ginger spice, and licorice. Vivacious and punchy. There is still prominent oak, but the balance is spot on. This is a long distance runner for sure, a very ripe, broad shouldered, delicious Margaux. — 13 days ago

They've been killing it this century.

Château Margaux

Premier Grand Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

So elegant and sexy. Deep ruby. Wet forest on the nose. The palate had so many levels. Velvety, full, dark chocolate, integrated oak, massively long finish. After 8 hrs still taste violets in my palate. Such a special bottle. Truly lucky to have enjoyed this amongst good friend. — 13 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1961

Taken to Hawksmoor in NYC for our uncle’s 75th. Decanted in hotel for 7 hrs before dinner. Dark reddish amber edges with dark tawny color center. Opaque. Great aged Bordeaux nose. Notes of black fruit, tobacco and cigar, cassis, old desk wood, saddle leather, some anise, some barnyard and a little mint. Rich and silky in the mouth. Long finish. The bottle (mid shoulder) wasn’t in as good of condition as the one we had a few weeks ago, but the outcome was similar. Family and the Somm all loved it, as did I. — 11 days ago

Fine description

Château Figeac

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Monsieur Manoncourt’s 50th vintage. 95 has these wild and non civilized tannins. Here they work well after all these years. Wine is elegant and stylish, complex, good structure, and will always be a bit Cistercian. The acidity gives it quite a good lift. Tell tale Cab notes of Cedar, Tobacco and blackcurrant. Great stuff. — 7 months ago

Château d'Armailhac

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

2001 vintage. An underrated vintage in the shadow of 2000, but well worth seeking out. An elegant wine, intensely perfumed with flowers, cigar box and cassis. It features a Margaux-like grace and impeccable balance, with the well-tamed tannins kicking in on the finish. This definitely delivers at 20 years old. Abv. 12,5%. — 14 days ago

Nice notes.

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1997

Honey-brioche and almond extract commingle with orange blossom, crystalline honey, light maple syrup and butter, marmalade with aromatic musk. The warm flavors of mouth-coating, unctuous citrus defy comparison, but evocative of marmalade hard candy, candied oranges, tangerine, clementine, nectarine, dried apricot, Meyer lemon essences, and baked apple and yellow pear. Golden; delicious.

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Lovely nose of slow cooked beef and heirloom pork, red and black roses, brown bread stuffing, fine tabak, vanilla-in-bread, dusty black cherry, dried black currant and espresso powder. Black olive rounds the palate in a textural wave that intensifies to charred grape gravy, very sharp forest berry, lavender, holly, pine nettle, and sage. Younger offering here but fully integrated and freshly offering dark bark and dark castings with lively fruit and floral punctuation.

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1988

Dark rubi robe and no sign of the age, nose of tobacco, blackcurrant, roasted pepper notes and a hint of flowers. Not a blockbuster like the 89 but this is elegant, complex, and oh soo good. No rush but probably no more development. Excellent bottle of classical claret. — 2 days ago

And you’re right as S-E has an undeserved reputation for rustic wines. Nothing further from the truth.
