St. Julien, Médoc

Château Langoa Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

This is really good!
Beautiful mixture of traditional Bordeaux secondary aromatics, powdery tannines, supporting refreshing acidity and modern-day fruit purity and cleanliness.
Wonderful wine.

But the wait rewarded
A fine St Julien which is built to last and have tucked away the balance to a few more years

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Brilliant. This wine has been reluctant to show the prowess of a 1982 Bordeaux but has evolved recently to show itself worthy of a great vintage and appears now ready for the long haul . Such a delight right out of the gate to enjoy. For those who follow the distinct palate of William Kelley, you will know the place this wine has today — 25 days ago

Château Gloria

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

1996 vintage. Decanted and tasted over the course of two hours. Plenty of sediment. Chunky nose with translated into the early flavor profile but lessened with time. Decent focus and concentration. Some grip but enough dark fruit remaining to mitigate the tannins successfully. Not improving but can hold steady in this range for another 5 or so years. Not super complex yet solid enough for vintage BDX to seek out without compromising the 401k/Roth IRA. 11.9.23. — 21 days ago

Château Saint-Pierre

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

This time was the best of all tasting! Some sweetness and fruit, and mellow tannins, went perfect with Moroccan couscous and merges. — 16 days ago

Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru)

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Dark rubi robe, nose of blackcurrant, cedar and flowers. Very dense and elegant in the mouth, its balanced with very fine tannins, good length and complexity. This is top notch and good value at this high quality level. — a month ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

2005 vintage. Decanted and tasted immediately and through 3 hours. Great fill/appropriate aging cork. Medium sed. Noticeably dark color. Any trace of the usual Cos baby fat for the first decade+ after release long gone geek. Interesting. This was a lean, mean, street-fighting machine with "minerality" to spare. Intense. Compact. Unsure if it will continue to menace in the next decade of life or retreat into a reclusive, "turtling" period. Best guess? Street-fighter par excellence. Regardless of taking the high or low road, it's not devolving into a drink 'em if you got 'em any time soon scenario. Thanksgiving 11.23.23. — 7 days ago
