Château Palmer

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

For the holidays we had the pleasure of having the 2008 Château Palmer. A Left Bank Bordeaux from Margaux and a blend of of 51% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot. A beautiful bottle of Bordeaux, drinking well right now with many years ahead of it.

On the nose there is black cherry, bkackberry, black currant, licorice, spice, cedar and earth.

On the palate there are notes of black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, mocha, licorice, spice, graphite and earth.

This wine is full bodied with a beautiful smooth supple mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium + chewy tannins that leaves you with a long black fruit woodsy finish. What a wonderful bottle a great way to begin the holidays. I hope everyone has had a great holiday. Continued joy and happiness into this coming new year. Please, continued good health and stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2014

This is a fabulous sweet wine from Bordeaux.

Dark Golden in color.

Beautiful sweet nose of honey, yellow apples, apricots, honeysuckle, lemons, caramel, spices and white pepper.

Full bodied and bold, with high acidity.

Sweet on the palate with honey, citrus, tropical fruits, spices, lemons and brown sugar.

Long, long finish with citrus and limes.

This 8 year old still feels very young and concentrated. Nicely balanced with lots of acidity to balance the sugars. Tangy and interesting with a heavy mouthfeel.

Rich, yet elegant. Sweet and powerful. Creamy and bold. A delicious experience.

Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime.

A great vintage that shows its power. Already showing great complexity, but will age nicely in the next 50 years.

Decadent and delicious. A fabulous dessert wine.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

97 points.

$250 (375ml).

R. López de Heredia

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2001

Following on from the 2005 Blanco Reserva, the Tinto Reserva from the fabled 2001 vintage was in fact a little underwhelming, perhaps given lofty expectations and the exceptional white we’d just enjoyed. This was in a lovely spot, offering plenty of mellow enjoyment but not a great deal more. — 12 days ago

Château Latour

Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1988

A wine that really reminds you why Bordeaux is Bordeaux. So classic on the nose - leather and stinky earth, restrained fruit. From the color would have guessed 10-15 years younger than it is. So mouth filling - hits every part of the palate. Acid slightly less than I was hoping but still delicious and a perfect pairing with a slow cooked lamb stew. — a month ago
