Château Haut Gelineau

Château Peyrabon

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

Bargain Bordeaux, still needs a decant while the steak 🥩 is being properly Souse Vided🤷🏼‍♂️
I don’t know why anyone would drink this without 20-30 years on it.
Pre arrival for 2020 is $14.00, so it will be enjoyable in 2045 more than likely.
Internet Notes as follows,

This is a property very close to Pauillac, and it's one to watch out for now, and in the future. These wines are well-made, value-driven, with good depth and length. Proprietor Patrick Bernard owns 50 hectares of gravel soils and with the aid of winemaker Xavier Michelet, produces elegant, silky, and vibrant Left Bank wines that won't break the bank.

Château Caronne Ste. Gemme

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Just needed time, both in storage and decant. Better on the 2nd day
Some historical stuff I found online,

The Chateau Caronne Ste. Gemme property has been making wine since the French Revolution and has existed since the mid 1600's. Now in the hands of the Nony family, who is related to the Borie family of multi-chateau fame, the estate is in excellent hands.
The vines average about thirty years of age and are located in the southwest corner of Saint Julien. The grapes are fermented in cement vats where they also undergo malolactic fermentation. From there they're aged in one third new French oak for one year before bottling.

Château Haut-Bages Libéral

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

This is one beautiful wine. I opened the 2010 Château Haut-Bages Libéral. Pauillac 5th Growth Château from the Left Bank Bordeaux. The blend is 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot.

On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, mocha, mint, herbs, smokey camp fire, cedar, crushed gravel and earth.

On the palate there is black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, herbs, smoeky oak, graphite and earth.

This is a wonderful full bodied wine with a fresh creamy mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium + mouthcoating polished tannins with a very expressive long red & black fruit graphite finish. I hope everyone's weekend has been eventful and I wish everyone a wonderful week ahead. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Le Petit Haut Lafitte Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

I used the Coravin tonight for a glass of this wine. Much better than 2 years ago. Clearly a well made, full bodied wine. It could get more integrated with a couple more years, but seems fairly balanced now. Not my favorite, but not bad. — 7 days ago

Château Lestage-Simon

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Dark, blackish robe, nose of asphalt, black cherries, anise and flowers. Medium bodied and rich but not overdone. Lots of Merlot here but good share of Cabernet too, like 60/40 I guess. Very classical in style and most pleasant, we liked it a great deal. — 25 days ago

Château Grand Médoc

Crus Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 opened July 2022. Earth, tobacco, old books on the nose. Heavy red fruit along with a soft tannic structure on the front of the palate. Gravelly high notes an the middle palate, but it has a slightly sour finish. Very drinkable, but not great. — a month ago
