Château Haut-Segottes

Clos Petit-Corbin St. Émilion Le Clarence de Haut-Brion 2018

Smells tight right out of the bottle through an aerator (as you’d expect). Tastes very good! But, anonymous. It tastes like very good high quality wine. — a month ago

Agreed!

Les Plantiers du Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1994

Lovely wine if lacking the oomph of the grand vin. That’s normal but maybe a touch more pronounced this vintage than some others. With that said, stupidly wonderful QPR. — 2 months ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1950

It’s alive! Tertiary aromas of earth, leaf and red fruit compote. Amazing acid balance, vibrant red color with little bricking. Sweet, resolved tannins. Improves with aeration. Unicorn wine. — a month ago

Awesome! How long and what method used for aeration?

Used the Durand cork screw/fork for cork removal. Just your basic very slow decanting as the wine presented itself in good shape upon opening. Waited 10 mins, then poured. I prefer to watch the wine’s evolution over time. Sometimes theses wines pass too quickly in the decanter.

Les hauts de Larrivet Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan White Bordeaux Blend 2018

All smiles because I’m lucky enough to have a friend introducing me to all these great wines that are outside my usual picks. Lovely one. Fresh tangerines. Nice acidity. — a month ago

My good friend JK always said when you open a 89 HB it usually will be the best wine in the room. This was the case! — a month ago

Château Montrose

La Dame de Montrose Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend

One of the best second wines I've ever had the pleasure of consuming . .,this with a delicious smoked duck breast with a crispy charred skin . . and four days ago my tasting group did an event where all wines were Bordeaux between 82 and 2000 vintage and all had to be 98 to 100 points (wine advocate or JEFF Levy's most recent scores) and two of those wines were the 89 and 90 Montrose, both of which we're drinking fabulously . . in fact beat out the Haut Brion and Ch. Margaux . . the only wine that I liked better than those two was the 1982 Mouton and have to say the 1989 La Conseillante was showing very well too . . Back to the Dame de Montrose . .,Spicy earthy good layers of complexity and good length everything paralleling the Grand Vin just the volume turned down a few clicks . . and it can now be had for around $200 versus the 800 for its big brother😆 — 6 days ago
