Château Bon Baron

Château Le Bon Pasteur

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Still showing a fair amount of toasty new oak (as well as somewhat gritty wood tannins), fruit is mature, just a tad of a green undertone to the remaining fruit, time to drink, though should show better with the grilled flatiron steaks!! — 3 days ago

Baron Philippe de Rothschild

Château Mouton Rothschild Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1970

Also took seven hours for fruit to begin to show. Powerful. Notice the "RC" in place of a number. This is one bottle of a few cases of the Reserve Chateau bottles that mistakenly got released from this vintage. Typically these bottles are reserved for Chateau dinners and kept in their cellar there. — 3 days ago

Montagu

The Baron Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

David T
9.2

This showed nice promise but, was somewhat closed down. It was opened right at tasting. So, it also hadn’t had much time to breathe. I would range this at 92-94 with 7-10 years of bottle age.

The mouthfeel was big, round, lush, touch velvety with rounded, yet drier tannins. Blackberries, black raspberries, black cherries, black plum skin, softly layered baking spices; cinnamon, some nutmeg & clove, vanilla, used expresso grounds, sweet tarriness, dark moist soils, good wood use (not over done), soft leather, fresh & dry tobacco, touch of graphite, light licorice blend, easy; dry crushed rocks, alluvial volcanic & limestone/sandstone. Dry stems with a full array of nice fresh, dark, red, blue & purple florals framed in light lavender & beautiful violets. The round acidity very good & rounded. The structure, length, tension & balanced are good but need several years to integrate to flourish. The finish is; lush, elegant, balanced, well rounded persisting minutes and long setting into dry, dusty tannins.

I am told by the folks who show the “Baron” for Montagu that this is made with Beckstoffer fruit. If they label it as such, the price per fruit ton is more.
