Château L'Evangile

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

1995 vintage. Decanted and traced over the course of 1.5 hours. Nice, top-shoulder fill. Great cork. Throwing very little sed. Cocoa powder and crushed violets in a fairly reticent nose. Light-medium body. Soft entry flavors with acidity and remaining tannins picking up intensity on the concentrated finish. Holding steady now and likely for 7-10 years on this plateau. Not improving but not falling off anytime soon. 12.3.23. — 21 hours ago

Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes

Comtes de Neipperg St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

While I enjoyed this 2017 it would have been so much better with a little more aging. I would definitely get it again and hang onto it for a few years. — an hour ago

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

I had the CB 05 just about a year ago. Might be some bottle variation but this one felt a bit more raw and green than my previous encounter. Still amazing. Just a small observation. — 11 days ago

Château Canon-la-Gaffelière

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

2005 vintage. Decanted and tasted after 15 mins, 45 mins and 2 hrs. Throwing decent sed. Great color. Overt baby fat from this producer dissipated but plenty of the usual, front-palate richness found in the first decade of life still evident. In “the zone” currently. Medium bodied. Not improving but tasting like it’s closer to the front of “the zone”than the mid-section or the caboose. Flavors, concentration and overall impression sez this continues to gallop along in this lane and at this pace for another decade before fading noticeably. 11.5.23. — a month ago
