Château Grand Ormeau

Lalande de Pomerol Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2003

Выпито у Савваса ( дома у Юлии) как warm up для последовавшего за ним Petrus. На удивление ( поскольку хранилось оно на Кипре последних пару лет непонятно как ) оказалось очень достойным. В иной ситуации оно было бы гвоздём вечера. Очень зашло под овечий сыр с трюфелем. Состав : Мерло 64%, Каберне совиньон и Каберне фран по 18%. — 2 years ago

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1964

Tasted blind. Totally different in style from the more elegant 1970 Château Petrus, the 1964 Château Cheval Blanc bursts with brettanomyces notes, but aristocratic and interesting rather than off-putting. Once your sense of smell gets past the brett, pronounced aromas of earth, dried plums and figs, cinnamon, licorice and mint emerge. Full-bodied, densely structured, concentrated and powerful, this is a hedonistic, sexy beast of a wine, waiting to be unleashed. Drink now. — a year ago

Château Chantecaille Clauzel

Saint-Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

See previous note which was my longest ever Delectable note. This wine has such an interesting story. Virtually unknown and surrounded by Right Bank royalty like Evangile, La Dominique and Petrus. Mainly Merlot with a small % of Cabernet Franc. Dark fruits with blackberry and a touch of vanilla. Only medium weight with soft fine tannins. Quite detuned. Cost $45 and drinks to its price point unlike the expensive wines produced by the neighbours. This tiny 0.4 hectare block’s grapes would normally be absorbed by one of the neighbours and end up in a much more expensive Cuvée. The previous Delectable note is incorrectly called Chateau Vieux Chantecaille but the lengthy description refers to this same wine. — 2 years ago

Yes Peter. Having only 0.4 hectare there is no room for a winery so it is vinified elsewhere.

Cantillon Brewery

Bruocsella 1900 Grand Cru Organic Lambic Ale 2021

Vintage Lambic “which has matured for three years in oakwood barrels and has been selected for its exceptional colour, taste and flavour.”
“Powerful yet elegant, Bruocsella can be considered the missing link between the worlds of wine and beer. Since there is no secondary fermentation in the bottle Bruocsella is a flat, non-sparkling beer.”
“This aristocratic beer is to our national beer patrimony what Mouton-Rotschild, Petrus or Romanée-Conti are to the wines.”

Cantillon fills the bottom shelf of our wine cooler, but I don't have that bottle.

It was the first time I had ever seen it when I bought it

Cap de Haut

Comtesse du Fumel Haut-Médoc Red Boreaux Blend 2000

Выпито третьей бутылкой у Савваса и Юли. На фоне великого Petrus оно конечно потерялось. Но как увеличение дозы - очень было к месту. Те не менее великий 2000 год в полном соку- уверенных 9.3 ставлю. По составу оно необычно для классического Бордо - Каберне совиньон 45%, Мерло - целых 39%, Каберне фран -16%. — 2 years ago

Château Pindefleurs

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2015


I did a side by side tasting of all of the Moueix projects in Pomerol and St. Emilion (except Petrus) and this was our favorite and is wonderful for the price. It is smooth and elegant. — 2 years ago
