Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Very Napa-esque- in all the best ways. Tight tannins even after 1.5 hours of decanting suggests that this vintage has many years in the cellar to go. — 7 days ago

Les Tourelles de Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

New vintage of this second label Bordeaux. This one is dominated by Merlot (66%) with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot. Big and jammy dark fruit aromas and flavors with notes of dark chocolate, truffles, smoke and baking spices. Lots of tannin on the long finish, but this one is still a baby. Would love to try again in five years. — 2 months ago

Glenelly Estate

Lady May Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot 2013

My first time trying this relatively new marriage of Stellenbosch and Bordeaux, the 2013 Glenelly Lady May, a wine whose creation was overseen by May de Lencquesaing of Ch. Pichon Longueville, whose dream it was ‘to craft the finest Cabernet Sauvignon blend outside France’. There are many good imitations of Bordeaux in South Africa, but this may be the finest I’ve yet come across.

The wine opens with classical aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, cassis, singed tobacco, graphite, balsamic and an exotic edge - sort of five spice, but hard to pinpoint. The palate is very direct and forthcoming with its glossy flavours of ripe fruit, espresso, and fantastic minerality. The tannin and acidity cut through with great precision and harmony, leading to a long and mouth-puckering finish. This has the muscularity of a left bank Bordeaux and a very youthful feel, and should age exceptionally well.

I noticed that this wine showed best with my last glass on the first night, after a few hours’ decant, and better still on the second. By then, a delightful accent of sweet strawberry, violet and vanilla had emerged. This is a wine of great complexity and one I will buy by the case in future.

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

Dark tawny, mostly opaque with amber-ish and clear rims. Quiet nose with faded fruit, until this opened up after a 4 hr decant. Then there are ample notes of black berries, cedar wood, cola, red cherries, some herbs, some mocha and a little pine. Was at its best when washing down a nicely grilled T-bone. — 5 days ago
