Château De Saint Louis

Château Gloria

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

NOSE: smells like really good wine. Clear, juicy, berry compote, concentrated cassis - pencil box, mild lavender, exotic spices, minerals.

TASTE: wow, elegant and tasty - like the nose but more. At once fruity and approachable - but dense, iron and graphite, lavender, exotic spices, leather, flint, juicy blackberry and cassis, tar, tannins taste like bitter herbs and wood ash. Tastes “purple.” I would really love to try this with more age on it. Better than most other wines I’ve tried. 94.

Château Léoville Poyferré

Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Powerful stuff. At this stage you get a sneak peak of what’s on offer from this strong vintage. Currents, Crème de Cassis, pipe tobacco, earth, black tea, leather and intriguing spices such as pink pepper and clove. It is a noble wine that should start to enter her peak in a handful of years. — 11 days ago

Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2008

Delicious and just starting to be drinkable. Lovely opulent fruit and a spine of gorgeous acidity. A touch of sweetness. Great, with loads of life ahead — 3 days ago

Château Ausone

Saint Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1993

Always a treat to drink an Ausone, off vintage that is drinking well showing berry, plum fruit, savory spice, menthol, with notes of earth, rust, iron & tobacco. — 4 days ago

Not used to drinking such a young GL. This was mostly primary that needs another 20 yrs. — 5 days ago

Louis Jadot

Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2020

Light straw in color.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing citrus, lemons, apples, oak, light vanilla, spices, minerals and white pepper.

Spicy finish with oak and almonds.

This Chardonnay from Burgundy is enjoyable by itself, although a little oaky for me, and watery on the finish.

Very pleasant to drink, and good by itself or with food.

100% Chardonnay grapes were aged in French oak barrels for 6 months.

13% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Château Calon-Ségur

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Less forward than the last bottle about 18 mos back. Still lovely. Cedary, minerally, mature St. Estephe. Red fruit very much an echo now. Excellent length and decades left if well stored. To seek out in magnum. — 5 days ago

Château Beychevelle

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

Garnet with terracotta rim . Quite a lot of sous bois , mostly red fruits , earthy tobacco. Nicely rounded on the palate , touch of cassis , red currant sous bois, herbal touches on the finish . Nice refreshing acidity , slightly drying tannin , but still well balanced. Very enjoyable and in a perfect spot in this format, now and over the next 5 years . — 16 days ago

Château Pavie

Saint-Èmilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

The 2003 Pavie is the vintage Parker and Robinson had their war of words over. On its 20 year anniversary I have to say it is a beautiful wine that has a rich and ripe profile with great balance and currently cruising on its plateau. — 5 days ago
