Château Haut-Bergey

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Red current, cassis, pencil shavings, and licorice root. A little juicier than the bottle I had in 2019. 2005 has probably plateaued. But is likely good for another 10-15 years. — 12 days ago

Château Coufran

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

This is a left bank done with over 80% of merlot and it shows. Still its a medoc wine and has all the tell tale soil notes together with some great and velvety tanins. Top stuff for the price point and they normally age really well. We liked it a great deal. — a month ago

Château La Reine Perganson

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend

I reckon it’s about in its moment, but wouldn’t be surprised in either direction. A little hint of mystery, the nose you expect, & soft & earthy & midbright to drink. For the money I reckon it’s outstanding, & for the drinking a pleasure. — 3 days ago

Château La Tour Carnet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

18 years old and also 18 years young. There is a history here, with a future ahead. This wine came a long way baby! Fruit of the forest, licorice, incredibly rich and bursting with life. Voluptuous and warm, coffee, butterscotch, powdery and integrated tannin. It’s shining. Cheers Floor. Here’s to adulthood! — 7 days ago

Dark color. Black currant, coffee and cassis on the nose followed by damp forest floor. This is drinking really well at age 20! Still loads of fruit. Dense and opulent with some tertiary notes beginning to take hold. I can’t believe that a comparably aged wine in say 2005 (when I got into wine) would be a 1985. This also shows how far cru bourgeois has come. I would imagine the 2010 is a stunning wine. Hard to believe this likely costed $20-$25 on release. Talk about qpr — 18 days ago

Domaine Huet

Le Haut-Lieu Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2016

It’s a good thing if your Chenin pours in the spectrum of deep golds. Le Haut Lieu Sec is like biting through the thick and creamy flesh of a bright brick red delicious apple.

The smells and tastes you could find in 30 year Sherry. The stuff of botrytis - honeys, middle eastern perfumes, hazelnuts, dates, cheddar. And there are cinnamon stewed peaches and apricot. And it just keeps going until it settles on caramel apple pops - the kind with the green cellophane.

This is Chenin stretching its legs, flexing its ability to be anything and anywhere.
