Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

This showed very well last night. Tannins are there and provide structure but are not harsh. Dark cherry and plum fruit with a supporting floral/earth element. Very tasty. — 4 days ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Pencil lead and forest floor nose, I made the rookie mistake of decanting outside in Covid-friendly but 60f setting. Never completely warmed and opened up, but nonetheless gave up phenomenal purity of black fruit, smooth tannins and rich dark berry melted into the moderate wood frame. We cognac-held our glasses to warm things up, releasing superb layers of vanilla, brambly red fruit, waves of light cassis. Perfectly cellared bottle could easily cruise 5+ more years. This would likely score far better indoors post-Covid! — 22 days ago

Domaine de Gachet

Lalande de Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

It's time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim. Not showing age at all.

Nice nose of black currants, black plums, cherries, light oak, licorice, spices, coffee, light barnyard, herbs and black pepper.

Medium plus in body and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with black plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, diet coke, dark chocolates, coffee, earth, graphite, vegetables and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very enjoyable Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend from the great 2009 vintage. Drinks like a young wine, and will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.

Needs a long time to open up, so be patient with it. Took 4 hours for the tannins to show up.

Thank you Wendy for sharing this with me.

I had the 2008 a couple of years ago and enjoyed it too. Very consistent.

Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel. Ripe, elegant and fruity.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc. Aged in French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$40 (current vintage).

Château La Fleur de Boüard

Lalande de Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

A very balanced and full flavored wine. Who is the most striking to me though was I have a vanilla flavor from the oak which I really wasn’t expecting. However, the tannins and acidity were strong enough to give it a good structure. The body was a bit dense and chewy exhibiting some good cooking spices and medium intensity flavors of ripeness. — a month ago

Château Lalande-Borie

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

39 years old - alive and kicking. There still plenty of fruit left, but it’s dominated by tertiary flavors. Graphite, leather, foray floor. Even at this age this has plenty of life left. — 25 days ago
