Château Haut-Brion

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Incredible depth of color rim to rim without variation. Inky. Showing slight brick under strong light. Nose of rye toast, tobacco, turned earth, black cherry, oak bark, crumbly roses, dried lavender, and sage. Descriptors do not do justice to the seamless whole of the smells, which are sewn together with espresso and bay leaf, allspice and forest notes. Smooth and silky tannins slip over medium mouthfeel of dried mushroom and graphite, re-emerge as round textural tapestries, filled with candle smoke, dark, rich cherry and ripe black currants. A stunner that needed days of exposure to fully emerge. Enticing and exquisite.

The nose was much more expressive than the palate showing a mixture of just ripened black fruit, gravel, pencil shavings, flowers, and cedar. The palate was medium bodied and slightly austere. Med finish. #chateaudugrandbos #graves #bordeaux #ctbucklinwine — 6 years ago

Depth of purple-black is stunning. Rim to rim unvarying. Currant leaf, black currant blackberry, burnt plum, smoke, mussel shell, morel, black cherry powder, African violet. Rich and focused both in mouthfeel and expression. Moist pipe tobacco, black cherry, graphite, dark chocolate, blueberry skins, cedar, cinnamon and dried violets. Generous finish with herbal-fruit interplay magnificently articulated.

@David T thank you 🙏☺️ I bought several of these bottles and will hold onto them for a few more years. I am excited to see how it evolves - it was already so lovely, even in its youth. Cheers!

Château Lassalle

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Vintage 2014 - crimson rim, very dark colour, very young and less accessible than other Bordeaux I tasted from 14. There are promising hints of cherries in the smell, laurel, leather-tones and a hint of chocolate and mocca. Powerfull in taste. Partly made of 'vieilles vignes' and one can taste this. Good concentration. Promising domain. #bordeaux #graves #vieillesvignes #cabernetsauvignon #merlot — 6 years ago

Château Malartic-Lagravière

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2012

Complex and quaffable #pessacleognan #graves GCC Bordeaux blend. Served cold there are some wild onion notes, yellow citrus but as it warms up a bit in the glass it balances out nicely and with forward fruit and an luscious mouthfeel. It would be outstanding with fresh oysters. — 4 years ago
