Château d'Aiguilhe Querre

Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

Wow. Intensely fruity on the nose. Raspberry coulis. Then on the palate more intense raspberry, pomegranate, cranberry, black currant, plum.. A little coffee at the end. Medium bodied, I think. Gentle tannins. Great depth, balance. Superb. And I think this was less than $30. Best part of my day right here. — 2 days ago

Château Grand Village

Bordeaux Supérieur 2014

Dark rubi robe, blackcurrant, soil notes, flowers and black cherries. Elegant and understated, from a magnum and its singing now. No rush though. This is one of the finest Bordeaux reds to have at this price point. — a month ago

Château Le Puy

Emilien Expression Originale du Terroir Francs Côtes De Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Soft, plush, and very pure…cherry, spices, dark chocolate. Some initial funk that blows off. Tannins softened, this is drinking very well right now. — 17 days ago

Château Fleur Haut Gaussens

Supérieur Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Nice nose with oaky notes and currant and small red berries. There is a tiny bit of meat juice too. The palate is well made with a good width, some matter and a nice grainy mouthfeel that expand in the rear with a spherical effect before a great finish with fruits, that meat juice touch and a tiny touch of bitterness. I have had much worse Saint emilion grand cru — 3 days ago

Le Clos du Beau Père

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Super beau au nez qui est très classique mais surtout en bouche, soyeux avec une texture riche mais fine en même temps, non dénué de fraîcheur, belle longueur, prix raisonnable pour un Pomerol et qu’on peut apprécier maintenant. 92-93

Very nice classic nose but the palate is even better, silky and fresh texture, finesse and class with still some power and good,potential, nice length as well. Reasonably priced Pomerol that can be enjoyed now also.

La Révélation Des Vignobles Denis Lafon Premières Côtes de Blaye Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Vintage 2000 | A gem from a little visited part of the cellar. Beautiful tertiairy smell: autumn forrest and impression of truffle. Velvety taste, a Point. I love this right bank cuvée from du Grand Barrail, 100% Merlot. Paired with Liege Salad. — 13 days ago

Drank 8/6/22

Excellent with grilled lamb chops

Decanted 1 hour.

On the nose blackberry, plum, and a touch of soil. On the palate blackberry, raspberry, cedar, leather, and hints of earth. Very well balanced with medium, well integrated tannins. Long finish with black fruit, soi,l and wood. I don't see this getting much better. Drink now and over the next 5 years. Delicious!
