Château Poesia

Saint-Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Bang on great right out of the bottle. This probably won't reach the potential of the Talbot in the long term, but it's right there ... Now. Also deep and opaque in appearance. Less fruit on the nose. Pepper, briar patch, and a subtle black licorice. This wine seems to already have settled into it's complete incarnation. Of course with it's medium acidity and solid alcohol level, maybe it gets better with age, but pop and pour it now just in case.

Last week was a combo of 4th Friday and Open That Bottle Night on back to back nights. Needless to say, the lineup between both days was full of heavy hitters, so I’m only posting standout bottles.

Fun to try next to a 2000 Talbot. This was decidedly lighter on the mid palate, but much more tannic at the finish. More to the red and black fruit spectrum showing black cherries, raspberries, underripe blackberries alongside lots of herbs, graphite, rose petals and cedar. The palate seems to beg for more time in bottle as it certainly gained power the longer it was open. I’d hold.

This is a PL vintage that Parker tore upon release. So, knowing this producer well & when that dropped the price to $85 a bottle, I tripled down. Glad to see it performing better than the 86 rating Parker gave it. So, thanks RP for making it a good buy.

Château Lalande-Borie

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Well stored bottle, No problems whatsoever Dark web info, Chateau Lalande Borie is a relatively new estate in the Medoc. The vineyard was initially created when the Borie family purchased 18 hectares of vines from Chateau Lagrange in 1970. To that, they added 12 more hectares of vines from various other growers, some of which needed planting.

Things changed with the 2018 vintage when the estate was renamed Le Petit Ducru.

Chateau Lalande Borie Vineyards, Terroir, Grapes, Winemaking

The 25-hectare, Left Bank vineyard is planted to 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc. The vineyard has a terroir of gravel and clay soils. The clay in the soil is part of the reason that today, you find more Merlot in the vineyard. Previously the Cabernet Sauvignon occupied 65% of the vineyard makeup.

The vineyard is well placed in the western part of the St. Julien appellation. It is situated inland, not too far from Chateau Lagrange, Chateau Talbot, and Chateau Gruaud Larose. The vineyard is planted to a vine density of 8,500 vines per hectare.

Caillou Blanc Sec Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Deep yellow gold. Abundant nose of dried quince and yellow flowers. Echoed on the medium light palate with white pepper and a light bit of balsa wood. Medium acidity and a long, palate-continuing finish. An unusual combination of lightness and oak driven weight that tastes heavier than it is making an excellent starter and meal wine. Drink now through 2027. — 7 months ago
