Consisting of 62% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon & 6% Petit Verdot, this red Bordeaux blend presents power & smoothness yet still quite youthful & evolving.

Château Montrose

La Dame de Montrose Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Really a pretty nice second wine from a great Bordeaux house (Montrose). In general I prefer St Julien to St Estephe but this is very good. Decanted 2 hours which I recommend. Inky in the glass. Some good secondary notes on the nose. Fruit is very there, but more acid to keep it balanced than I expected. Nice with a prime ribeye on the grill. — 5 days ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

A majestic dark crimson color with bricking. Invites you in with mystical perfumed notes that jump from the glass.  Palate is as good as the nose (SEE PRIOR NOTES).  Should hold with a nice drinking window ahead.  Triple YUM tonight! — 14 days ago

Château Phélan Ségur

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

Nose does not give away much, understated. A thick wine, cherries, concentration, lavender and laurel, very nice and a point now. Grainy structure. Freshness, power, delicious. — 2 days ago

Château Serilhan

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Classic Bordeaux nose - black currant, dark cherry, pencil shavings, a bit of bitter cigar box. More dark earthy notes vs gravel. But there’s also freshness. Dried orange peel, an uplifting citrusy note.
Medium bodied on the palate and very juicy. Very fine, dusty tannins, present yet wi the such fine grain. The acidity - fresh, juicy, citrusy. And underneath- layers of dark fruit and an earthy, tobacco finish.
This is surprisingly delicious- maybe lacking true depth but so drinkable.
A fine, sweet-savoury Bordeaux. Probably peeking right now.

Château Calon-Ségur

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1959

From a great looking bottle with a fill almost into the neck. Double decanted and left in the bottle for 5 hours before attacking it. Amber color. Good weight and haunting nose. Notes of old cedar, mocha, plums, cola, dark fruit, molasses and some sweet red cherry. Early on it’s all about the amazing nose. But with time the wine gains weight and you have a gorgeous old St Estephe in front of you. Still giving its all, and although the fruit is somewhat faded, this has complexity and structure that still drives the experience. And that nose is simply stunning. Great showing. — a month ago
