Château Le Clos du Notaire

Côtes de Bourg Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

2018 vintage. 75% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Cabernet Franc. Amélie Osmond and Victor Mischler are doing an amazing job at this beautiful estate since 2015. This 2018 is an energetic wine bursting with red and black fruits, combined with cedary and flowery notes. A serious fruit concentration, balanced by a solid ripe tannic structure, balancing acidity and good length. Should age well for at least 5 more years. Terrific value. Highly recommended. Abv 14,5%. — 20 days ago

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1970

Ghosts and whispers of sensual, cigar-laden and mushroom-infused royalty. Friendly, happy ghosts and sexy-ass whispers. Needed 15 mins to come together and fell off before an hour but 40 mins of pure joy. — 8 days ago

Côtes de Bourg Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Hyväntuoksuinen ja maukas viini. Sopii varmasti monen ruuan kanssa. Vahva maku, joka on maukas ja hienostunut.

Katsottiin Noahin kanssa Midsommar -elokuvaa.

Château Auney L'Hermitage

Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

It is time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Nose of black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, cloves, vanilla, licorice, herbs, tobacco leaf, black tea, black pepper, coffee, pencil lead and earth.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, currants, oak, light vanilla, spices, dark chocolates, earth, peppercorn, herbs, tobacco leaf and light forest floor.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a tasty Merlot blend from Graves. A unique blend for this region.

Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Tangy and interesting.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

A good food wine and good by itself too. Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats.

A blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. Aged for 15 months in French oak barrels.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$30.

Château Brane-Cantenac

Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

First sip after opening was incredibly watery and light.

Took about 3 hours to open up and show. And then it was exactly as expected with great depth and fruit. Solid backbone and balance.

Finished before dessert

Clos des Lunes Lune d'Argent Bordeaux Blanc Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2018

Kinda forgot how white Bordeaux is a bit of a sleeper when it comes to summer whites. A bit sleeker & more crystalline than my top dog White Bordeaux, but still fresh white flowers, some marzipan, & distant cut grass. Heavier on Semillion blend, which is my preference. — 13 days ago

Château d'Issan

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Tight at first but the wine opened up quickly and gloriously! Tar and graphite on the palette to complement forest floor on the nose. This vintage continues to be a winner! — 7 days ago
