Château Larcis Ducasse

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2007

9.1

The second Bordeaux to pair with our Allen Brothers steak trio. Thought we’d do a Right Bank & Left Bank. For me, having a Right Bank after a Left Bank is the better order to have them. Merlot based Bordeaux is always a little softer. Drinks better after you’ve finished your steak. Not as food dependent.

2007 is not known as a remarkable Bordeaux vintage. However IMHO, the ones I’ve had for the most part have developed better in bottle over time than the release reviews. I would also say that about 1997 & 1999.

On mouth entry, the fruits starts like Napa Cabernet for 4-5 seconds before yielding to; tobacco, cedar, stones & forest floor. Quite a good follow to the La Dame de Montrose.

Had dinner at the Château during En Primeur in 2014.

Château Tronquoy-Lalande

Cru Bourgeois St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Cassis, tobacco, pencil, powdery and spicy, dash of mint and oak. Wonderful entry level St. Estephe. Good QPR..
A point.
The owners of Montrose bought this estate in 2006, which seems like a clever move to me.

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

For the fifth and sixth wines of the week, it’s time to raid the cellar. Drinking the ‘05 Cos d’Estournel next to the ‘05 Montrose. For me, aged Cos d’Estournel is the ultimate expression of Bordeaux. Big, tannic, and layered - a wine you don’t think about touching for 15 years. Perhaps because it was my first introduction to fine wine way back in the early ‘90s, Cos has always held a special place for me and, my oh my, the ‘05 does not disappoint. At 78 Cab / 19 Merlot, the wine has the highest proportion of Cabernet in recent memory and is just now entering its ideal drinking window. Deep ruby in color with a bit of bricking, the bouquet opens after a bit of air. Ripe black currants, plum, tobacco leaf, cedar box, and leather on the nose. Also noticeable are prominent hints of incense, a characteristic that is unique to Cos in the best vintages. The entry on the palate is rich and layered evolving with each sip. Layers of ripe black fruit, black tea, graphite, chocolate-covered cherries, and graphite are evident. The tannins are strong but smooth, and hold the layers together in beautiful harmony.. The finish is long and pervasive with strong notes of cassis lingering. Honestly, St Estephe doesn’t get any better than this. A wine to savor over many hours. It has a long life ahead and will improve further with proper cellaring. 2005 vintage on April 20, 2020 — 5 months ago

Lambrusco di Sorbara

Shout out to Montrose Cheese & Wine, a great local joint where I bought this, and a place I hope is still around in a few months.

The wine is everything you could want in a Lambrusco. Dry, bright, red fruits, and a super soft minerality that feels like it must be destroying decades of dental work. Very very nice.
