La Fleur Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend

Château La Fleur Peyrabon

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend

Classic in style and flavor: cigar box and tobacco on the nose. Cassis and pleasing tannins with enough acid to be elegant. Wine is drinking well now. — 8 days ago

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

From the Great Friends Pondering Great BDX series. Fresh as a daisy and generally preferred over the ‘88. It was mentioned that this year had greater acidity, which given the freshness makes good sense. This could seemingly go another 20 years without issue. — 6 days ago

Château Pibran

Cru Bourgeois Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Short decant and needed more as it’s very young. Cherries, cedar, and ample oak on the nose. Wine has medium depth and medium tannins. Cherries dominate the palate with some pumpkin spice. Medium minus finish. Overall solid every day wine that is more New World than old. — 8 days ago

Showing all the aspects of a grand Bordeaux vintage.

It’s velvet, candied floral, ruby; creamed raspberries, blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, dry stone, limestone & sandstone, black rich earth, tobacco, used leather, tomato with leaf, elegance defined, well knitted & balanced, dark spice, dry top soil, underbrush, candied florals of; fresh, withering, dark, red, purple and touch of blue flowers. Round acidity for days with a long, ripe, velvet finish persistent that falls into a dry minerality on the long set.

Photos of; us spending time learning in the vineyard with our friend & Clerc Milon Winemaker-Jean, Sofia picking the 2012 Chateau Mouton Rothschild Merlot, same day dinner at Chateau Mouton Rothschild sitting with their CEO who was retiring & subsequently ended up running Montrose and Chateau Clerc Milon. We enjoyed 75 Mouton out of 6L with dinner. The vintage Andy Warhol designed the label. Each artist is given two cases of Mouton as payment if their artwork is selected for their bottle.

Our hands are all over the 2012 Chateau Mouton Rothschild & Clerc Milon wines. So, you probably don’t want to buy those or sell them on an auction site if you own. 😜

Fantastic - have a few vintages in my cellar

Château Pontet-Canet

Les Hauts De Pontet Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

45+ decant but needed closer to 2 hours. Dark purple in color. Nose was all over the place - US, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy. Wine had minimal fruit, plenty of wood, and lots of Portuguese elements. Would have guessed California or Portugal if having blind. Depth was medium as well as the finish. Ample tannins. Expected more from the label and vintage. — 15 days ago

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Brilliant Paulliac tonight with A5 Wagyu. Classic nose and great medium/full body to this beauty. Sous bois, cassis and leather and bring this into a beautiful long finish. Surprisingly took about an hour decant but just opened up lovely. — 19 hours ago

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

This Pichon-Baron was in the earliest peak of its window, pure ✏️ and graphite cigar box nose, rich, intense, leading cassis, tar and a mineral and wonderfully tannic trip over the palate and a long, 40 second finish that was reminiscent dry red clay. Good news: I have 11 more in the case I cracked last night. Bad news: I’ll be in my 60’s before these open up and the secondary stuff really starts to show. — 11 days ago

Good to see this finally coming around. I’d had it four times over its life & found it to be either closed or not ready.
