Château Hourtin-Ducasse

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Dried cherry, forest berry, currant, sage, and cardamon. Crunch cranberry and red currant fruit transitions to herbal tea and tobacco aromas. Medium tannin with a sense of minerality on a chalky dry finish. Paired with homemade caneles. — 10 months ago

Château Latour

Le Pauillac de Chateau Latour Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

This was 2000 vintage consumed in Jan., 2019. OMG! Perfectly cellared and probably the best bottle (magnum) of Bordeaux I’ve had in 15 years. My thanks to the somm at Alain duCasse for the introduction, and to Steve Rayman, formerly of B-21, for making it available at retail. And, of course, to my friends at Stacole! Yummm...! — 2 years ago

Château Larcis Ducasse

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

How to be 14 and not feeling it.
Evoluted nose, very dark fruity with small vegetal notes.
It seems young in mouthful. Tannin still sharp. Little astringency

Château Ducasse

Blanc Graves Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc 2019

At 16$ this is drinking like a wine that should cost 2-3 times that. Deliciously crisp, huge floral bouquet and soft white orchard fruit. — 4 months ago

Château Beauregard Ducasse

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Lighter red color than I expected. Kinda a dark rose color. Nose is pencils and damp granite gravel river bed. And cherry Coke. Flavors are very dry and the whole classroom pencil sharpener. Also has rose petals and black chocolate mixed with anise and charred meats. Hint of blood. — a year ago

Nicolas Thienpont

Chateau La Prade Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Nicolas Thienpont is a great winemaker at 3 Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classés Beauséjour HDL, Pavie Macquin and Larcis Ducasse +Grand Cru Classé Berliquet + a few estates in the Côtes de Bordeaux). This Côtes de Francs is probably the most humble in his stable, but it's a very serious wine. A blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, it features a dark red colour colour with a purplish rim, a complex nose with blueberry and strawberry fruit, flowers and cocoa powder. The fruit is packed in a tight ripe tannic structure, with balancing acidity and serious length. I would recommend to give this overachiever a few years of bottle age. Abv. 14,5%. Great value at 12,90 euro. — a month ago

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

9.5

Drank 1/18/19 at the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux event in Miami.  All wines from the 2016 Vintage.

Tasting pour, no formal notes taken.  Most of these wines are very tight, and will require 5-15 years to really come together.  Many will likely improve a few points with time.

Delicious black fruit. More complexity and depth than the Grand Puy Ducasse.
