Médoc, Bordeaux

Château Camensac

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

Firmly in tertiary territory at first, with mushroom and soy sauce on the nose and palate. After 20 minutes or air time fruit came to life, still with good acidity and chewy tannin. Has plenty of life in in but very tasty right now. — 3 days ago

@Pinotman /// Andreas Agreed. It usually punches above it’s weight.

Château d'Issan

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Tight at first but the wine opened up quickly and gloriously! Tar and graphite on the palette to complement forest floor on the nose. This vintage continues to be a winner! — 4 days ago

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1970

Ghosts and whispers of sensual, cigar-laden and mushroom-infused royalty. Friendly, happy ghosts and sexy-ass whispers. Needed 15 mins to come together and fell off before an hour but 40 mins of pure joy. — 5 days ago

Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru)

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

We had the 2009 and 2010 Vintages in a vertical tasting on 6/26/22. The 2009 had a more floral bouquet. The 2010 was more minerality and earthy. The 2010 got better with aeration. Tastes of black cherry and cassis. The 2009 was more red berry. For both the tannins smoothed out. Both had long finishes. Both, of course were classic Old World; have to consider them medium bodied. — 3 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1945

Tasted blind. Deep amber tawny color with a powerful nose. Exotic. Notes of red cherries, old cedar desk, plum, mint/menthol, cinnamon, and a little molasses. Tannins fully resolved, leaving silky juice that got better and better over the evening. At first this seemed like it was a bit past its prime, but with a ton of air over the day/night, this powered up and reminded us it's one of the best bottles of grape juice ever made. Ethereal is perhaps the best word to describe the experience. Thanks Murray! — 17 days ago

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Ken Z
9.6

Drank 6/18/22.

Nose of cherry, blueberry, smoke, earth, and hint of cedar. On the palate, morello cherry, leather, tar, with long, dry finish. Give it another 5-10 years to shine.

4/23/9/5/5 +50 = 96 pts , but needs time

Special wine geek note. This was tasted along with the 2009 pontet, and the 2000 Dominus. This was the best of the lot. Sorry, no pics
