Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

A gorgeous Yquem. So balanced with amazing freshness and acid to its decedent, honeyed and floral layers. Still young of course, but already a stunner. — 6 days ago

Domaine de Chevalier

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Placed 2nd in small scale Pessac-Léognan tasting behind the 2010. This had a caramel nose, like caramel corn. Amazing. — 7 days ago

Château Carbonnieux

Pessac-Léognan White Bordeaux Blend

First, the oak, then the acid, then the long full finish. A bigger wine than expected, which will go with a range of food. A $35 bargain at Costco  — a month ago

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1971

1971 vintage. Bottom shoulder fill initially had me worried. Decanted and tasted immediately and after two hours. Absolute ton of sed more appropriate for a vintage port. This was banging. Light-medium body. Chunky frontal palate. Plenty of charcoal in the mid-palate with some surprising freshness on a longer than expected finish. Not getting better but feel it can stay the current course for a spell (4-5 years). This was from a 750ml format but a larger format would undoubtedly be an upgrade. La Mission HB is a fave property and this reaffirmed those feelings. 10.13.23 — 2 months ago

Château Suduiraut

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

NOSE: coconut cream, custard, nilla wafers, grilled pineapple, a little mango. Smells like typical aged Suduiraut!

TASTE: the vanilla cookie is strong with this one - plus tres leches. 93.

Sauternes is one of my preferred pairings with pumpkin pie and whipped cream. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Château Carbonnieux

Grand Cru Classé de Graves Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Dark ruby color. The nose is full of tertiary aromas of forest floor, graphite and rubber tires. The palate does show a bit of plum and dried dark cherry/black currant fruit with notes of oak, baking spices and that ever present graphite. (Especially on the finish) Medium-plus body and nice round mouthfeel. Mouth watering acidity and very silky tannins. Aged very nicely. Thanks for the taste, Kase! — a month ago
