Château Duhart Milon

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Another 2005. Magnum kept the oxygen in check, but reveals it still quite young. Magnolia in a warm breeze. Cherry blossom. Pine, chainsaw heated. Coffee rye. Violets, both fresh and dry, on this floral led bouquet. Rich blackberry in a medium-verging-heavy mouthfeel rich black currant, ripe cassis, sloes, rosemary, sweet mocha tobacco, black cherry and smoke. Relentlessly rich.

I don’t have many ‘05s. But ‘09s and ‘10s in excess. I may need to visit some auctions.

Bodegas Caro (Barons de Rothschild / Catena)

Caro Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2013

From Argentina, this half Can half Malbec has notes of sweet tobacco, black raspberry and mocha. Medium tannin and a peppery acidity. #caro #mendoza #argentina #baronsderothschild #lafite — 6 years ago

Great off the blocks with a deep and well structured body. The fruit was faded and after an hour most everything was faded apart from the acid and the tannins. #lafite #pauillac #bordeaux — 7 years ago

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1961

From the famed '61 vintage this bottle was in fine shape, though it did drink like an antique. Elegant aromatics, florals, dried red currant fruits, sous bois, some good persistence, but it was a little short on the energy side for what you expect from CLR. Known as a slight under-performer for the year, it about fits that image. #lafite #1961 — 5 years ago

Cellaring issues and a small taste did not tell me much about this wine. The taste was please my though. #lafite #bordeaux — 7 years ago

Réserve Spéciale Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Was a little disappointing given the #Lafite provenance. Still quite tight after an hour. Gonna hold the rest of my bottles for a while — 6 years ago

Incredibly austere with horrible green notes. Very bitter. No fruit left here. 2 bottles opened. Both shot. #lafite #bordeaux #firstgrowthbordeaux — 7 years ago
