Château Les Graves De Barrau

Château Doisy-Daëne

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

This is very elegant and complex, like most Barsacs is lighter weight than Sauternes and much more floral. Also has the tell tale honey and bee wax notes as well as lemon zest. Its terrific now and there is no rush to enjoy it. Enthusiastically recommended. — 10 days ago

Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1990

It’s got the nose but the palate wasn’t quite there to back it up. All the classic flavors were there just not quite coming together in balance. Still delicious though! — 7 days ago

Château Haut-Bailly

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1988

A very balanced wine in his late secondary evolution. Lots of fruit left, civilized tannins, medium bodied and much better than most 88s we had. Good now but really no rush. Excellent bottle !! — a month ago

Château Coutet

Sauternes-Barsac Sémillon Blend 2003

Nose is a lively mix of pure apricot, honey, smell-able acids, some honey and a humus-like note. Intensely concentrated on the palate. Texturally there’s a feel of a tannin-like quality on the palate, but this is not a criticism. The honeyed quality is intense. — 6 days ago

Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Deep Ruby with pronounced aromas of black fruit, cigar box and floral aromas. On the palate blackberry, currant and plum flavors with cacao, tobacco and oak notes. Big fine tannins, long finish, good balance ending with fruit, savory earthy herbs and toasty cedar notes. Nice! — 6 days ago

Château Pape Clément

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

Perfectly mature white BDX last night. The color isn’t really captured in the photo but it was a beautiful apricot hue. Perfume of tropical and stone fruits which was reflected perfectly in the palate - apricot, peach, beeswax and a long finish. Maybe could’ve used a touch more acidity but otherwise a really lovely wine. — 13 days ago
