‘13 vintage is showing beautifully. Graphite. Cigar box. All that you expect and want. Gorg. And cheap at Big Y in great Barrington. I bought it all. — 5 days ago

Château La Lagune

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Medium bodied. Very tight…even after being open an hour. Plum, kirsch, cherry in the nose. Pretty darned dry-big tannins. This one has miles to go before it sleeps. — 18 days ago

Château Sociando-Mallet

La Demoiselle de Sociando-Mallet Jean Gautreau Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2018

2018 vintage. Solid balance of fruit and structure for the $20 range. Currently grippy but give it 3-5 years and this should be really nice for the price. Will pick up a few more bottles for guilt-free drinking while the big boys slumber — 25 days ago

Château Lanessan

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Very classical in style, good density and length, all the cabernet stuff is there, the wine holds really well and works great with food. If you like the rich and bold pass your way, otherwise give it a try, some of the best value of Bordeaux can be found here. Really good stuff. — 14 days ago

Château Larrivaux

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

It’s moved into more brooding darkness in the past few years. Black fruit and a bit of spice, earthy notes, menthol and a touch of liquorice. A little short on the depth and finish, but it’s nice drinking. — 11 days ago

Château Barreyres

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Raspberry and blackcurrant aromas , jammy fruitiness and soft tannins. An enjoyable easy partner to fillet steak followed by a good cheddar. — 14 days ago

Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Second bottle in as many weeks. Really enjoyed that equal, two-fisted assault of fruit and tannic structure in the early going with a slow, shimmering fade out. Far from perfect but character and personality count. Picked up a few more bottles and will continue to trace evolution or lack thereof. — 13 days ago

Domaine Ostertag

Vignoble d'E Riesling 2015

Château Belle-Vue

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

I love this Bordeaux from Medoc! Per WE vintage chart the 2015 rates in at a 99, of course not ready to drink yet! I have a few more tucked away and wanted to give this a spin! Thank you @David T for the recommendation!
Finesse is all I can say. Every element is meshed exceedingly well! Smoke, chocolate, dark berries, espresso, earth, leather, pencil lead, and violets.
This wine does not have the wallop of a Napa cab..but think Old World on steroids!
