9.3

Drank 8/6/22

Excellent with grilled lamb chops

Decanted 1 hour.

On the nose blackberry, plum, and a touch of soil. On the palate blackberry, raspberry, cedar, leather, and hints of earth. Very well balanced with medium, well integrated tannins. Long finish with black fruit, soi,l and wood. I don't see this getting much better. Drink now and over the next 5 years. Delicious!

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1953

My last bottle, with a mid-shoulder fill. Reddish tawny color, thin and translucent in the glass. Earthy nose. Notes of black fruit, pencil lead, balsa wood, tobacco/cigar and leather saddle. Rich and palate-staining in the mouth. Still has some pucker. In the end, it's all about the great nose and perfume it gives off. — 7 days ago

I had this about 7 years ago and like your bottle, it was terrific!

Château Lynch-Moussas

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Already ready to drink. Intense, Cabernet-driven Bordeaux, with deep black cherry and plum flavors. Powerful earthy nose. Superb value and a paragon of Pauillac. Great with Secret de Compostelle cheese. — 4 days ago

Château Lestage-Simon

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Dark, blackish robe, nose of asphalt, black cherries, anise and flowers. Medium bodied and rich but not overdone. Lots of Merlot here but good share of Cabernet too, like 60/40 I guess. Very classical in style and most pleasant, we liked it a great deal. — 14 days ago

Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1959

Dark tawny center with amber color and clear rims. Barely translucent. Massive nose of tobacco and Cuban cigar with notes of sweet black fruit, moist dark soil, unsweetened chocolate, pencil lead, old cedar desk wood and a little barnyard. Great mouth feel and texture. Very much alive. Opened and slow-ox’d for a few hours, then put in a decanter an hour before. This powered up all night. Last sip was the best. I’ve probably had more LB than any other Bordeaux (young and old, mostly old), and this was head and shoulders better than any previous bottle. Great juice! — 17 days ago

Last wine of the evening. Much more fruit forward compared to the 2001 we had earlier in the evening. Such a great wine flight and this was a wonderful finish. Perfect time to drink this 2009 — 20 days ago

Les Griffons de Pichon Baron

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Estate was founded in the late 17th Century. This period was known as the Grand Siecle, or "great century", in reference to Louis XIV's 1661 accession to the French throne. This second label from Pichon Baron is deep Ruby with aromas of black fruits, cacao and sweet spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry and black cherry with espresso, cacao and licorice. Fine tannins, long finish, ending with fruit, cedar and spice. — 16 days ago
