Graves, Bordeaux

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

This is a delicious dessert wine from France. Sweet on the palate with great complexity.

Showing honey, yellow apples, apricots, spices, sweet nectar, white wild flowers, melons, brown sugar and spices.

Medium bodied with high acidity.

Well balanced with enough acidity to balance the sugars.

Thank you Barry for sharing this with me.

This needs no food. Just sip and enjoy.

This 8 year old will continue age nicely in the next 40 years.

Just delicious.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

Château Haut-Brion

Le Clarence de Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Soft on the palette and luscious on the nose. Nice presence on sandalwood and oak. A bargain wine and vintage drinkable now or for another 5 years in the cellar. — 9 days ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Vintage 1989 | 3/4 transparant, Italian rooftiles brown rim. A very intense bouquet: cedar, forrest wood, laurel, flint, cherries, só multi layered you tend to smell endless. Powerful taste, prominent bitters, still too young imo, the taste comes together with the entrecôte, awesome harmony. A benchmark for wine lovers. Fine that HB delivers to mark a special moment! I bought this when my daughter was born | at restaurant Pollevie — 3 days ago

Like most of the 08’s this needed an hr of air to reveal a classy & polished Bordeaux showing plum & cassis, graphite, leather, spice & tobacco. — 11 days ago

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1989


1989 La Mission Haut Brion. Decanted and strained through cheesecloth over 4 hours prior to service. Glad we did. Continued to open up for the next 1-2 hours. Cassette tape, acetone, blueberries, gravel, soil. Really long finish. Drank side-by-side with the 1999 DRC Echezeaux (which we decanted just before serving) and it was a toss-up as to which we favored. Very different wines. The DRC was feminine, had more fruit, and a refined elegance. It was the favorite early on. However, as the La Mission evolved, it became hard to decide which was the favorite. — 4 days ago

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1998

Tropical fruits commingle with the typical aromas of molasses, orange peel, and dried apricots. Hint of mint as well. Salted sweetness is countered by abundant fresh acidity. Would like to see a bit more viscosity on the medium to full body.

A simple good pairing with dark chocolate. Very youthful at 23 years.

Château La Tour-Martillac

Pessac-Léognan AOC White Bordeaux Blend 2000

Fantastic experience before and after food. Before the bitters were very noticable and made me believe it was Grüner Veltliner. After the food you noticed the fresh acidity with a kicker. Great wine for 21 year old!! — 4 days ago

Clémentin de Pape Clément

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Nicely evolved with jammy black fruit, cassis, a touch of tomato jam, a whiff of cedar. More super Tuscan on the nose vs a classical Pessac.
Poised, impeccably balanced and so elegant on the palate. Seamless! The tannins fine, dusty and completely mellowed down, the aftertaste really compelling. Still not very classical Bordeaux, but delicious nonetheless!
