Château La Grave (Paul Barre)

Aux Caudelayres Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Lyle Fass
9.3

Lovely, ripe nose of cassis, huckleberry, tobacco, plum and spice. Lovey minerality. Very fine and refined. Palate is juicy and structured with lovely purity, length and balance. Really showing well. Love Fronsac when it is on. Outstanding length. Nose is bright and high toned. Such a lively bottle of Bordeaux. Great fruit soak on the finish and terrific mineral infused texture. 9.3. Maybe 9.4 with air. Much better than my last bottle. Nose has cocoa now. Big plum. Classic right bank satellite vibes. Unreal juiciness. Tangy cassis. — 11 hours ago

9.2

Gorgeous, pristine - downright youthful w/gobs of black fruit (cherry, plum, blackberry & prune). Also sporting minerals, fig, clay, loam, soil & spice. Seamless integrated tannins & great persistence on finish. You can find great value in Fronsac — 2 months ago

Château Moulin Haut-Laroque

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Black berry, charcoal, smoke, ink, bell pepper. A workin’ man’s bordeaux. You need to give this enough air. Popped and poured four days ago, thought it was pretty tight and backwards. So, I put the cork back in and stuck it in the fridge. Four days later, this wine really sings. — 23 days ago

Complex Beaujolais, a little bit (delightfully) bitter, great for slow sipping. Best chilled for 15 and left to open up. — 6 days ago

Château La Vieille Cure

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

So impressed by the quality here. These are hidden gems to my palate that really shine with some age. This shows cigar tobacco, wet leaves, cocoa and plenty of tertiary complexity while retaining freshness with vibrant black fruit, acid and mellow tannins. Thankfully the critics never seem to pick up on this (though JR nailed it with a 17/20), and it unbelievably still retails for around $30. This is in its prime and I expect will drink well for another 10 years at least. — a month ago

Other night. Bold. 2010 still needed air and had plenty of time left for the cellar. — 14 days ago

Comtes de Neipperg Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Lovely wine that still has a bold tannic structure after a two hour decant. I suspect this wine will have have even better presentation in several years, even though it was fully enjoyable tonight. — 2 months ago
