@Steve Bridge great nose with dark red fruit, smoke, leather, and pencil.. might take on more weight with a couple more years on it. Luv the off vintages at a good price since you don't need to wait 20 years. Cheers!

@Bob McDonald 1st time trying and going to look for some older vintages. 2016 is terrific with its blackberry, floral, chalky notes....would luv to try again with 4 more years on it. Cheers!

@Tom Garland I think the first vintage of The Caley was 2012 - Yalumba’s ultra premium.

Château Rieussec

R Bordeaux Blanc Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2019

I preferred this white Bordeaux over the Pape Clement. This was mellow and easy drinking with notes of rose petals, honey and a touch of citrus. Great wine. — 3 years ago

Chateau Pape Clément Grand Cru Classé de Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

An extensive history with this Pessac-Leognan estate. In 1305 Bertrand de Goth, a major landowner in Bordeaux as well as its Archbishop, became Pope Clement V and the city named this estate in his honour. From 1939 it was owned by the Montagne family, and passed by marriage into the ownership of Bernard Magrez. After a 20 minute decant, aromas of vanilla, raspberry, pepper, menthol - minty, dusty and aristocratic. “Damn good claret” as the old boys in Pall Mall would say! JH said more like the Medoc than Pessac-Leognan on the nose. The medium bodied palate has become more savoury and less fruit driven at 17 years but still works extremely well - seamless. 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the 1001 wines. — 2 years ago
