Fronsac, Libournais

Château Moulin Haut-Laroque

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Black berry, charcoal, smoke, ink, bell pepper. A workin’ man’s bordeaux. You need to give this enough air. Popped and poured four days ago, thought it was pretty tight and backwards. So, I put the cork back in and stuck it in the fridge. Four days later, this wine really sings. — 21 days ago

Château Bellisle Mondotte

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

A touch hot but otherwise an unpretentious and delicious right bank Bdx (80 merlot / 20 cab franc). Dark fruits—plums and blueberry—plus tobacco and plenty of earth and umami. Pair with anything roasted or grilled and a summer evening watching the fireflies — 6 days ago

Château La Vieille Cure

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

So impressed by the quality here. These are hidden gems to my palate that really shine with some age. This shows cigar tobacco, wet leaves, cocoa and plenty of tertiary complexity while retaining freshness with vibrant black fruit, acid and mellow tannins. Thankfully the critics never seem to pick up on this (though JR nailed it with a 17/20), and it unbelievably still retails for around $30. This is in its prime and I expect will drink well for another 10 years at least. — 25 days ago

Château Beau-Séjour Bécot

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Fantastic bottle from a really cool and old school St. Emillion producer - the limestone storage caves were a sight to behold.. Grabbed one of these for the cellar - excited to see how good this will be in 10-15 years. — a month ago

Château L'Evangile

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

4 hour decant(lots of chunky sediment). A breathtaking inky dark ruby red color. On the nose: blackberry, baking spice, smoke, plum, licorice, and some spicy pine. Taste: smooth, rich medium plus body wine with black cherry, tar, vanilla caramel, cassis, cigar box, and a dark chocolate strawberry bitter finish. Interesting to drink now(pop one if you have several)!!! Got more bottles and will see how it develops over the years for a possible better score(critics luved it)......modern style at 15.5% alc (whew!!). — 7 days ago

Château La Sergue

Lalande de Pomerol Cabernet Franc Blend 2011

Wow this is great! The nose is made of meat juice, cedar, tobacco leaves, oak and vanilla, black currant and an earthy thing which is typical for pomerol in my mind. The palate is well designed with a massive acid backbone, a bright red and black berries note all along, a good width, a velvety mouthfeel. In the rear tannins kick in adding a dry layer which is stylish and elegant, and that carries on on the finish with black currant, some oaky notes too, a reminiscence of the meat juice notes that could be felt on the nose and a tiny bit of bitterness. This is a great effort, what a wine in this vintage! Served along a massive ribeye steak that had matured for 42 days... A pairing made in heaven — 7 days ago
