Château Cantemerle

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Cantemerle is one of my favorite bargain Chateaus. Medium weight, woodsie (but not oaky), a little cocoa… good potential but doesn’t fully come together because of a diluted watery streak. Had the 2010 not long ago which was better. — 10 days ago

Château La Lagune

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2020

2020 vintage. Tasted this morning at the Château with Caroline Frey. Just bottled a week ago. Another great effort after the splendid 2019. Also tasted the 2021 primeur which is a great success for the vintage with more Cabernet Sauvignon than usual. — 25 days ago

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a beautiful one from Bordeaux.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose with black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, spices, espresso, earth, tobacco leaf, herbs and black pepper.

Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, earth, wet leaves, herbs, peppercorn, pencil lead, dark coffee, dark chocolates and tobacco leaf.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 7 year old, from the great 2015 vintage, is drinking very nice right now.

This Fifth growth Bordeaux is showing nice complexity, with a soft and elegant mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 3 hours in the decanter.

Young, but already delicious, and will continue to age nicely in the next 20 years.

Robert Parker 97 points.

Good by itself as a sipping wine, and good with food too. Will pair nicely with a nice piece of steak.

A Delicious wine that drank better than the 1996 I had 4 years ago.

A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and a touch of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Aged in French oak barrels (50% new) for 16 months.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

Château Jander

Moulis en Médoc ed Bordeaux Blend 2016

Very solid inexpensive Left Banker. 50/50 Cab Merlot. Nose has rich plummy fruit, warm gravel, a little cigar box, a little twiggy underbrush. In the mouth it’s full but tight. Zingy acids for a 14.5 wine. A fair amount of tannin. Flavors feature loads of gravelly earth and bright cherry/berry fruit in a bone-dry package. Nice job! — 9 days ago

Château Siran

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

This wine represents! What a beautiful fruit forward red berry nose with brush, pine, and anise--red licorice. A bit hot, but all else melds beautifully into a perfect Margaux. I will rebuy this wine and redo the notes. Meanwhile, this is a winner!

Last night I opened the 2009 Château Cambon la Pelouse. Left Bank Bordeaux from Macau in the Haut-Medoc. A blend of 54% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot.

On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, tobacco, licorice, cedar, charcoal anddark earth.

On the palate is black cherry, blackberry, black currant, green bell pepper, cedar, licorice and pencil shavings.

This wine is full bodied with a silky smooth mouthfeel medium acidity and medium fine tannins that leaves you with a medium to medium + long fleshy dark fruit earthy finish. Please have a wonderful weekend and stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
