1961- I mean 1961 - the Somm delivered and @David L and I were blown away - cork was in excellent shape - tannins were strict but silky - - nose on par - pine peach licorice- the color was brand new - crazy - I mean all you ever want in every way - it could go another 20 years - I was taken back - extraordinary- a Bordeaux grand cru that is actually grand — 10 days ago

Really mellowed out and was good after it warmed up and had airtime. Not quite Lafon but solid — 19 days ago

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Showing the heat of the vintage, the 2009 Lafon-Rochet is a plush, medium bodied Saint Estephe with gorgeous ripples of blackberry, boysenberry, coconut cream and balsamic. There is little to no perceptible tannin and gentle acidity, making this a supple drinker now that should probably be enjoyed in the near term. — 2 days ago

Macon-Villages Chardonnay 2018

It’s been a while since I’ve had one of these Heritieres offerings. This wine makes me regret that. Zesty acidity and muscle. Not terribly long but definitely refreshing. — a month ago

Out of this world. Quintessential “match stick” at first but the evolution was something else. — 25 days ago

Great medium bodied red. Soft mouthfeel. Not as dry as the cans and malbecs I usually get. — a month ago
