9.0

Sappy, grainy-textured, plump, spicy and meaty, this full-throttled expression will need a year or two to settle down. Bursting at the seams. 2018 bojo personified, on the power side of the power /elegance spectrum. As always, excellent value from Brun. — a day ago

Château Truquet

Saint-Emilion 2016

Really liked this Bordeaux. It’s 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon with well balanced acid and tannins that make it very drinkable despite its young age. Subtle black currant on the pallet. — 3 days ago

Awesome nose. Clean and feral with blueberry and blackberry. Red velvet cake. Superb granite imprint. High toned, layered and very deep. Super juicy and clean with lovely juicy berry fruit. Velvety tannins and great freshness from good acid and terrific mineral energy. Excellent. — 16 days ago

Pale lemon color. Medium(-) intensity aromas of citrus (lemon, tangerine) yeast and battonage (yeast, oat, cereal, bread dough) and cream. Very Champagne like. On the palate the wine is dry with medium acidity medium alcohol that warms your chest (13?) medium body and a medium(+) finish. Very good. #burgundy #whiteburgundy #chardonnay #france #1ercru — 8 days ago

Chateau Cazevielle

Origine Saint-Chinian Red Blend 2017

Light tannins on the nose. Dry on the palate, I mean extra dry; crispy. Matter of fact fried chicken would be amazing with this wine! I’d like to know what’s in the blend. I’m touched by the tribute on the label though 💕 let this wine open up (after decanting) for at least 10 minutes - wow! — a day ago

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Elegant BDX blend. Black cherry, leather, and bay leaf aromas. Round with tertiary flavors coming alive. Red fruit, leather, dried herbs with a long smooth finish. Cheers! — 4 days ago

Les Combes Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2014

I think my first btl of this must have been from a friend's stock as I thought I was out of this. On the nose: massive reduction, with loads of struck match...this suggests a gravitas that the wine just can't live up to. Reduction dominates the nose, so there's nothing else to say about that. On the palate, hi-toned meyer lemon, rich lemon tart with butter, but surprisingly light-bodied..leaning a touch thin. Ok finish, which shows some white pepper. OK, but slightly disjointed...moral is: noble reduction and a big punt does not a great white burg make? — 20 days ago

Wonderful crystalline raspberry and wet pavement with a hint of salinity and herbal / citrus spritz that lingers with the faintest of tannins. I love me the books and crannies of the Côte. — 7 days ago

Château Pavie Macquin

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Decanted 90 minutes. Very dark opaque colour. Nose with dark fruits, some black currant early on but some spices as well and some oak. Tasted blind the nose seems more CNP then Right Bank. Palate is dense, powerful, nice acidity in the middle, ripe fruit, volume and depth along with a delicious finish with a slight dryness. Very good but there is a little bit of warmth to it caused by alcohol that makes the whole balance very slightly out of sink with the rest. 90-91

Carafé 90 minutes. Couleur foncée et opaque. Fruits noirs, cassis aussi, du bois un peu. Fait plus CNP que Rive Droite au nez. Bouche délicieuse, puissante, dense, du volume, belle acidité en millieu de bouche, finale est assez longue, un peu asséchante et une touche alccoleuse qui affecte un peu l’équilibre d’ensemble. Très bien malgré tout, mais pas certain que ca deviendra grand. 90-91

Don’t get mad at me delectable....wanted to taste one to see where things are falling. Pretty awesome so the rumors about the ‘16 vintage are probably true. — a day ago

Haven’t had the 16 yet - how long of a decant?
