Médoc, Bordeaux

Château Lynch-Bages

Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2001

Just fantastic tonight. Truly singing and such a wonderful example of classic Bordeaux from a producer we love and have had the good fortune to visit. Paired with a grilled leg of lamb on a beautiful early fall evening. Classic nose, seamless on the palate, great acid. Finish is slightly thin but still really a great wine. So fun. Opened 5 hours before drinking, no decant. — 2 days ago

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Celebrating with a couple of nice bottles tonight

2.5 hour decant(lots of chunky/fine/cloudy sediment). An astonishing dark purplish magenta color. On the nose: expressive notes of plum, cedar, worn leather, musky earth, floral, and smokey vanilla. Taste: smooth, creamy, rich wine with plum, cedar, tobacco wrapper, burnt earth, and a white pepper- strawberry-graphite long finish. YUM!! Comfortably in its drinking window(with decant) and more years to go.

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Nicely aged but on the down slope of its life. Structured and balanced tannins persist against the bouquet of a classic Bordeaux. Not equal to other older first growths. — 9 days ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Excellent start to fall with 82’ Cos. Perfume of cassis, old library and saddle leather gives way to an unctuous palate - cassis, hoisin, bacon, animal, tobacco and the classic Cos silky tannins. Excellent wine. — a day ago

Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

The Bordeaux expression as we like to taste it unpretentious but with a lot of relief. Dark dress. Multidimensional rich nose. Soft mouth carried by unexpected aromas of fennel, plus aromas of blackcurrant, plum, undergrowth, oak, tobacco, very Bordeaux. Affordable and balanced. A classic

L’expression bordelaise comme on aime la goûter sans prétention mais avec beaucoup de relief. Robe sombre. Nez riche multidimensionnel. Bouche souple portée par des arômes inattendus de fenouil, plus des arômes cassis, prune, sous-bois, chêne, tabac, très bordelais. Abordable et équilibré. Un classique.

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

My favorite of the night. Super approachable despite being so young. More merlot than 2017 so a touch more fruit right away. Plum, cassis, a little blackberry. Needs more time but super good right now. — 3 days ago

Château Latour

Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Deep and intense and very pure. Dark, brooding fruit hard to unwind but loads of depth. Minerality and savory fruit in spades but densely packed right now. — 11 days ago

Château Brane-Cantenac

Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

I can find nothing wrong with this exquisite bottle. This is a wine you can stick your nose in the glass and get lost in depths, amid layers of swirling fruit and spice. It is both mellow and sultry, showing leather, pepper, peony and violet, and then bright and lively fruit on the palate, cherry and blackberry that are a bit ethereal. Unadulterated Margaux joy. — 2 days ago

Château Lascombes

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Gor

Fantastic concentration and balance. Opaque purple color with nose of cherry liqueur, roses, dark chocolate and hint of sous bois. Persistent palate with dark fruits and floral elements that drives to a long finish. This is still tightly wound and needs time in a glass or decanter but will sing with a few hours of air. — 7 days ago

Medium garnet , garnet rim . Quite herbal , dark cassis fruits , slightly unclean but the funk seems to blow off . Some dark fruits , lighter bodied . Fills out on the palate though slightly drying on the finish. Nice acidity , tannin quite resolved . Slightly rustic but good length and enjoyable . Tasted blind on 17/08/2022 — 20 days ago
