Domaine Des 2 Ânes

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

2 hour decant(decent fine/chunky sediment). A majestic purplish dark magenta color. On the nose: bursting from the glass are notes of red and black fruit, charred wood, milk chocolate, some mint, touch of cigar box. Taste: smooth, delicate, elegant wine with red berries/plum, leather, gravel, herbaceous, mocha, and a spiced tobacco medium plus finish. YUM! Drinks well with the decant, but no hurry, time to go. — 15 days ago

Domaine Jamet

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2016

Let breath for 2 days. Still could have used a 3rd but we are impatient. Deep dank sensual purple fruited powerhouse. Wanted to sit with this wine for hours. Each sip revealed more of its complex bouquet. Tannins got the best of us and had to move back to white wine. Thx Cerasulo. — 4 months ago

Yarra Yering

Dry Red Wine No°2 Shiraz 2010

This full bodied wine leans towards savory, but also gives red fruit, meaty flavors, stewed fruit, and dried herbs. This wine speaks to me in a Chateau Musar kind of way.

Yarra Yering is one of Australia’s most iconic wineries. The 2010 Dry Red Wine No 2 is a unique blend consisting mostly of estate-grown shiraz (95%), with small portions of viognier, marsanne and mataro. It is described as sort of an Australian riff on an old-school Cote-Rotie. I call this one delicious.

First growth down under. Great wine!

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1985

1985 vintage. Arguably, my fave wine but first time ever tasting this vintage. It didn’t suck. Decanted. Throwing appropriate sed. Light-medium body. Mixed elderly funk nose with the trademarked cocoa powder and blueberry early on after an hour decant. Bright cherry and ripe plum rolling after two hours decanted. More stuffing than expected. Really nice specimen. Definitely not getting any better but at the top of the bell curve for another 2-3 years. Window is closing. Run, don't walk. 5.11.23. — 23 days ago

Prev notes apply - absolutely delicious on so many levels. Totally worth tippling. I mean, c’mon, can you remember the last wine you had that was mad from goblet trained grapes?

Fabulous photo! Looks like the bottle hangs with the knives.

Château Pavie Macquin

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Blend of 78% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits, floral spice and smoky cedar notes. On the palate flavors of fresh blackberry and black cherry with cacao, tobacco, licorice and smoky spice. Fine tannins, well balanced on long finish, ending with fruit, cedar, smoke and earthy mineral character. Very nice, will age well but wait a few more years to really enjoy! — 3 months ago
