Graves, Bordeaux

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1966

Another great btl of this wine showing the classic La Mission nose. A wine that I have had the pleasure of drinking more than 7 cases over the last 15 yrs. The wine has barely budged & has been fully mature & holding at its prime since I opened my 1st btl. Showing red & black fruits, cedar, leather, tar, smoke, licorice, balsamic & graphite are just some of the notes. A wine that you will still taste & think of after you finish the btl. — 4 days ago

Château Simon

Cuvee Prestige Barsac 2015

Exotic fruits, pineapple, passion fruit. On the grassy side, hay, peach in syrup, apricot... superbly in place for this 2015 with a potential for evolution over the next 25 years, potential evolution towards notes of dried fruit and nuts. Sweet without saturated sugar. Digestible and light. A real wine in the refined sense of the term. Magnificent on a Roquefort cheese.

Notes fruits exotiques, ananas, fruits de la passion. Côté herbeux, foins, pêche en sirop, abricot… superbement en place pour ce 2015 avec un potentiel d’évolution sur les 25 prochaines années, évolution potentiels vers des notes de fruits secs. Doux sans sucre saturé. Digeste et léger. Un vrai vin au sens raffiné du terme. Magnifique sur un Roquefort.

Château de Landiras

Graves White Bordeaux Blend 2021

Very nice aromatic white Graves. Pineapple and citrus notes along with some herbal notes. The palate is very well made with a very strong acid backbone, some great width, and a soft mouthfeel with a bit of grip (I know it makes little sense but I can't put it better). Long and fresh citrusy finish. This is a great effort and it pairs very well with oysters — 19 days ago

Château Olivier

Pessac-Léognan Blanc White Bordeaux Blend 2018

Lovely white Bordeaux. The Semillon dominated at the beginning, finishing with lemon from the Sauvignon Blanc. Straightforward and nowhere as complex as the Malartic-Lagraviere, but a delicious bottle of wine. The nose had a great citrus and flower aroma. — a day ago

Château Malartic-Lagravière

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2008

Wow! Great white Bordeaux. A symphony of white fruit flavors that is just so complex. Ready to drink right out of the bottle. The palette just keeps changing throughout the sip, starting sweeter and fruitier and going drier but more intense. The nose is extraordinary: flowers in spring. A great experience. — 2 days ago

Château Larrivet Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend

65%CS, 20%M & 15%CF. A lot of oak, smoke, incense, very floral and earthy. Red and blackfruit (blackberries, blackcurrant), some green notes also. Very dark red with firm structure, needs time. Second day better integrated. 91+ — 11 days ago

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Le Petit Haut Lafitte Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

I used the Coravin tonight for a glass of this wine. Much better than 2 years ago. Clearly a well made, full bodied wine. It could get more integrated with a couple more years, but seems fairly balanced now. Not my favorite, but not bad. — 5 days ago
