Château Puech Haut

Château La Lagune

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2020

Nose: closed but hints of loveliness. Lilacs

Palate : focused blackberry fruit. Good acidity. Hints of good internal aromatics. Hints of blueberry rock candy. Delicious.

Château Larrivet Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Good old-fashioned style claret. Saturated color. Nose has cedar, smoky gravel, a subtle menthol note, and cassis fruit. Equal parts dark fruit and gravelly minerality in the mouth. Dry impression, and no extra fat on this one. Tannins are soft and don’t intrude. — 5 days ago

I bought this bottle several years ago for $35. A huge splurge for a beginner. Been meaning to open it and I figured it would be a flop. Cork was in fantastic shape. Decanted and wow. Fruit is still there. Maybe some cinnamon and very faint cedar notes and some dry earth. Really hasn’t lost any color. Always fun to come across a forgotten wine in the cellar. — a month ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1985

La suite, un 85 qui est à point, les notes classique d’un Bordeaux de 38 ans. De belles notes tabac, boite à cigare, terre humide, champignons. Belle finesse, belle longueur. — 13 days ago

Château Haut-Bailly

Delectable Wine
9.4

The 2009 Haut-Bailly remains a glorious example from this Pessac-Léognan estate and confirms my recent encounters. Blueberries and cassis scents soon join black cherries, blood orange and iris flower notes on the nose. It skillfully translates the precocity of the growing season, though there is just a touch of alcohol that blurs the edges compared to more recent vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with a sensual, creamy, velvety texture. It is laden with black fruit and just a hint of liquorice, more primal than the bottle opened at the vertical the previous year. Drinking perfectly now if you like a bit of hedonism, otherwise, leave it four to five more years. Tasted at the château. (Neal Martin, Vinous, January 2023) — 7 days ago

Château Larose-Trintaudon

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Medoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Really nice. PnP. Lovely texture. Dark fruit with subtle hints of earth and cedar. Surprisingly more like a new world blend than Bordeaux. I enjoyed it. — a month ago

I love to see you drinking these, and understanding the benefit of patient storage, even if that storage was elsewhere for the last 15Y.

Why store when you can buy it well stored whenever you want,

Château Cantemerle

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Medoc medoc medoc medoc for days. Medium body, higher acid, fills in nicely w bell peppery blackberries. Finish is long carried by more chalky tannins felt in the end. I was mixed about whether I like wines like this much anymore but it is winning me over. — a month ago
