Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Wow. Very dark rubi rose, slightly bricky at the rim. Nose of blackcurrant, cedar, dark cherries and a hint of spices. Very elegant, complex and long in the mouth, one of the fines Pauillacs we had in a good deal of time, and we had some :) this is an outstanding bottle by all means. Enthusiastically recommended. — 4 months ago

Hell yes.

Billecart-Salmon

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

It’s everything you want from good champagne. Rich, unctuous texture with notes of brioche toast, vanilla, pineapple, pear, flint. While it’s big and rich, it still has enough minerality and acidity to keep it extremely drinkable. Fantastic. — 6 days ago

Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2012

A friend surprised me with this latest vintage release Unico, after we had the Valbuena of the same vintage earlier in the day.
A glorious wine from start to finish. Everything I expected from a wine of this caliber. And we were only scratching the surface.

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1961

Taken to Hawksmoor in NYC for our uncle’s 75th. Decanted in hotel for 7 hrs before dinner. Dark reddish amber edges with dark tawny color center. Opaque. Great aged Bordeaux nose. Notes of black fruit, tobacco and cigar, cassis, old desk wood, saddle leather, some anise, some barnyard and a little mint. Rich and silky in the mouth. Long finish. The bottle (mid shoulder) wasn’t in as good of condition as the one we had a few weeks ago, but the outcome was similar. Family and the Somm all loved it, as did I. — 13 days ago

Château de Beaucastel

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 1998

Worried about the light, “thin” first impressions… but never fear. No Brett..round and fruit forward… resolved tannins…a teeny bit missing acid, but a superb foil for Scottish Chateaubriand on this cold Edinburg evening. Juicy cherry with a hint of forest floor. One of the “good” bottles of older Beaucastel. — 3 days ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1997

Honey-brioche and almond extract commingle with orange blossom, crystalline honey, light maple syrup and butter, marmalade with aromatic musk. The warm flavors of mouth-coating, unctuous citrus defy comparison, but evocative of marmalade hard candy, candied oranges, tangerine, clementine, nectarine, dried apricot, Meyer lemon essences, and baked apple and yellow pear. Golden; delicious.

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1988

Dark rubi robe and no sign of the age, nose of tobacco, blackcurrant, roasted pepper notes and a hint of flowers. Not a blockbuster like the 89 but this is elegant, complex, and oh soo good. No rush but probably no more development. Excellent bottle of classical claret. — 4 days ago

And you’re right as S-E has an undeserved reputation for rustic wines. Nothing further from the truth.
