White Bordeaux Blend

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 Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

32 years and going strong. Chanterelle and porcini with earth notes and crushed cherries and baked plum. Palate of dried blackberries and alluvial strolls, black currant and smoke. Cedar-cinnamon-tobacco triumvirate. Gloriously strong and hearty.

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. — 7 days ago

Severn this is for sure one of our favorites, we do carry many vintages and love it dearly.

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

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

1 hour decant(some fine/cloudy sediment). A sublime medium magenta color. On the nose: very aromatic nose of plum, funky earth, cassis, pencil lead, sweet tobacco, mint, worn leather. Taste: open and accessible, vibrant, smooth wine with red plum, cigar box, crushed stone, spice, cassis, cedar, smoked meat. YUM! Just pure class, what more can you say except even with my accolades not nearly good enough to be worth +$900/btl...paid less then $170 15 yrs ago. — 7 hours ago

Château Rauzan-Ségla

Margaux Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

2000 vintage. Lean and mean. Has the desired Bordeaux funk in the nose and flavors. Plenty of graphite, cassis and plum aboard with a light-medium body and a grippy, focused finish. A dynamite Margaux. — 2 days ago

Château Figeac

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Monsieur Manoncourt’s 50th vintage. 95 has these wild and non civilized tannins. Here they work well after all these years. Wine is elegant and stylish, complex, good structure, and will always be a bit Cistercian. The acidity gives it quite a good lift. Tell tale Cab notes of Cedar, Tobacco and blackcurrant. Great stuff. — 7 months ago

Château Lascombes

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, aged in oak for 18 months, deep Ruby color with aromas of ripe black fruits, cedar and floral spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry and plum with notes of espresso and spice. Fine tannins, long finish, good balance ending with fruit, leather and oak. Give it another year if you can wait. — 5 days ago

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. — 5 months ago

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. — 17 days ago
