Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

8.9

Drank 10\20\20. Nice with Lamb Kebabs.

Reidel vs Zalto Bordeaux glass tasting.

Reidel Vinum (approx $15\stem)

Graphite, black fruit, and earthy scents. Plum, black cherry, and earth flavors are backed by medium tannins. More red and black cherry, with a bit of oak on the finish.
3\21\8\4\3 +50 =89 pts.

Zalto Bordeaux Glass (approx $60\stem)

Nose a bit more floral, with violets, plum, and graphite. Plums, blackcherry, red cherry, oak, and earth on the palate. Seems to have a bit more lift. Finish similar to the Reidel.

3\21\8\4\3+50 = 89 pts.

Same score, but perhaps slightly preferable from the Zalto, and easier to pick out individual notes. Reidel seems a bit heavier. This wine was better a couple of years ago, and seemed to fade a bit after a couple of hours as well. Drink now.

Château Paloumey

Château Paloumey 2015

2018 vintage. Located in Ludon, with famous neighbours La Lagune and Cantemerle. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (42%) and Cabernet Franc (3%). A bit timid on the nose, the fruit hidden by cedar wood and a hint of coffee. Medium-bodied with bright cassis fruit and impeccable freshness. Needs time to balance out the oak, but everything is in place. A little patience required, but another fine Bordeaux value at 14 euros. — 20 days ago

Diane de Belgrave

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

2014 vintage. Whereas the grand vin Château Belgrave typically features a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon, this second wine is dominated by Merlot (79%) with the remainder Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium-bodied, with good fruit concentration, freshness and balance with ripe tannins and a good smokey length. A pleasure to drink now, but should age well for a few years. Good value for 17,90 euros. Abv. 13%. — 12 hours ago

Château d'Agassac

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2007

Update / Edit : 2 hrs later. This just needed time to open up, and is now actually pretty amazing. Lots of balance, dark fruits and time.

Original: 2007 Bordeaux drinking now in late 2020. 13 years hidden in the cellar was probably a bit too much aging. It's past prime, and tough to tell what it started with. All that's left is a bit of oak cherry and leather

Château Reysson

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

2018 vintage. Dourthe managed this estate for the Japanese owners (Mercian) since 2001 and finally bought it in 2014. The soils are somewhat atypical for the Médoc, with a lot of clay, which explains why Reysson has probably the highest Merlot content (92%) on the left bank. Cru Bourgeois Supérieur. Another great Bordeaux value. Black cherries and very subtle oak. Round and balanced, with the high (abv. 14,5 %) alcohol well-integrated. Soft tannic structure and good length. — 15 days ago
