Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Sexy in 30 min. Rich cassis, blue and blackberry, (good kind) oaky vanilla, velvety tannins. Complex and fun. Risotto with mushrooms and sausage. — 3 days ago

Château Lafon-Rochet

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

2018 vintage. Last tasted 8.3.21. A little less overtly rich and smoky…slightly less body and more polish. Had I been blind tasting, woulda guessed 2015 Château Meyney. Still super smooth and über-drinkable. Starting to pick up a hint of tannic resistance. So good. — 2 years ago

Prieuré des Couleys St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1967

I figured I’d be dumping this one, pleasantly surprised that it still had fruit on the nose & acidity in the glass. You would think its an 05 — 6 months ago

Love an excuse to break out the Durand!

A. Rafanelli

Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1990

One half of a double-blind, France Vs. USA 1990 vintage showdown that also included a Chateau Meyney Saint-Estephe. Both wines had great provenance and were properly cellared over the last thirty years. I opened both bottles about three hours before we got into them. Corks on both wines had held up very well but looked pretty gnarly. The Rafanelli exhibited great color, noticeable darker than the Meyney and quite a bit of sediment too which left the appearance a bit cloudy but certainly not murky. The fruit was remarkably fresh! Red and dark fruits with leather, red rope licorice, mushrooms and a heavier amount of smoke than the Meyney. Full bodied. This was remarkably tannic still! As I mentioned in my note about the Meyney, it was really hard to chose a favorite between the two. I think the Meyney had a more compelling nose but the Rafanelli had a slightly more gratifying palate. Regardless, we were all winners tonight! Sort of blown away how well this Rafanelli has aged and it has years to go before it dies. Bravo! — 4 years ago

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2007

Bon, Bordeaux quoi. Proche du meyney quoique moins végétale peut être... Effectivement, ce ne sont pas les Bordeaux qui procurent le plus de plaisir en fait mais c'est bon — 7 years ago

Tu mettais combien au Meyney du coup ?

Château Meyney

Cru Bourgeois Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Solid older Bordeaux, some Cordier funk, seems middle-aged, medium-long finish, good, not great. — 10 months ago
