Nose has ripe red raspberries, sliced lime, dehydrated cherries and rising dough.
Palate has ripe cherries, dried raspberry, light salinity with a nice acid on the finish.
The newer vintage arrived last fall (2020) and it's finally warm enough outside to really appreciate drinking it! — 7 days ago
Nose is iodine. Mineral. As this opens you get controlled richness.
Palate is controlled richness. Lemon zest. Dense. Mineral. Wonderful.
Some green apple skin as it opens.
An hour in this is the real deal. Elegantly rich. Dense. Blind would guess grand cru. Wow. This is sick. Effing sick.

Another great version of this Bouzeron. Lime zest and minerals on the nose. Super clean and fresh. Terrific palate. Has a lovely balance between richness and freshness. Textured and deep. Awesome purity, depth and structure. Love the combo of richness allied with freshness. Decent length. But what a mid palate. — 7 hours ago
Tonight's wine I have opened the 2010 Chateâu Branaire-Ducru Duluc de Branaire-Ducru.
On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, black currant, game, eucalyptus, chocolate and earth.
On the palate there is black cherry, blackberry, plum sauce, black currant, dried herbs, spice and earth.
This wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + fine grippy tannins that leads to a long dark fruit earthy finish. I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. We are almost to the end of the first week in June and the weekend is upon us. Please enjoy the rest of the week and have a great weekend. Stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 10 days ago
If I could pick only one wine, I would turn to the left bank Bordeaux. Here is an example of why: clean, dry, vibrant, intriguing, mineral, elegant yet very present and a phenomenal lingering finish. This beautiful wine from Saint Julien ha it’s typical softer well rounded tannins, dark red fruit of currant, red berry and perhaps dark pie cherry. Loved it and could stop sipping it. — 6 days ago
Always a favorite and it smokes in 19. Nose starts out shy and buttery. Some minerals peeking out. But all in all one smells the density but also senses it’s holding back. But that palate brings it. Electric, retesting, mineral and deep. Some apple fruit and also some citrus but the texture, freshness and mineral complexity tell the story here. Terrific length. Best since 14. A brilliant version of this. — 7 hours ago
