Clos Saint Michel

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

32 years and going strong. Chanterelle and porcini with earth notes and crushed cherries and baked plum. Palate of dried blackberries and alluvial strolls, black currant and smoke. Cedar-cinnamon-tobacco triumvirate. Gloriously strong and hearty.

Château Canon-la-Gaffelière

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

Medium garnet, the 2001 Château Canon la Gaffelière offers gentle notes of dried red plum and figs, sweet tobacco, green olives, earth and farmyard. Quite savory on the palate with smooth tannins and dried red fruits, this 2001 has good energy left and should, if stored appropriately, hold up well for another 5 years or so. Drink now until 2027. — 12 minutes ago

Domaine Dujac

Morey Saint Denis Pinot Noir 2020

Shimmering medium ruby, the 2020 Morey-Saint-Denis Village from Domaine Dujac shows well at the moment, mingling aromas of red and black cherries, blackberries, earth and a dash of cumin spice. Medium-bodied with a creamy texture and good depth, this elegant Village finishes surprisingly long and will surely benefit from extended bottle aging. Drink from 2024 until 2045. — 5 days ago

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

A WOW wine. Extraordinary Bordeaux power and intensity at a reasonable price. The strong leather, earth, and licorice flavors and smooth tannins in the finish are perfectly balanced. A great buy. — 8 days ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

This wine was love at first sniff. Medium garnet in color, a mesmerizing perfume of blackcurrant, ripe blackberry, sweet spice, wet tea bag and cigar box introduces the 2001 Château Ducru Beaucaillou. What an elegant, drop-dead gorgeous nose! Medium bodied and silky textured, the wine shines with remarkable balance and wonderful complexity. Drink now until 2030. — 2 minutes ago

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. — 8 days ago

Severn this is for sure one of our favorites, we do carry many vintages and love it dearly.

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

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

I remember this wine being quite fruit forward upon release. Almost 20 years later, it opens with notes of dried and slightly cooked red fruits, leather, tobacco, earth and a dash of vanilla. On the palate, the 2001 Château Cos d'Estournel has a surprisingly sweet flavor profile and good concentration. The tannins are well integrated and take a backseat to the fruit. Although miles away from the quality level of recent vintages, the 2001 is still quite enjoyable. Drink now. — 4 minutes ago
