Château Talbot

Saint-Julien Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2020

Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. This estate owes its name to Connetable Talbot, the English general & governor of the province of Guyenne who was defeated at the famous Battle of Castillon in 1453. Deep Ruby, purple hues, with aromas of black fruits, herb, tobacco and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of plums and black currants with cacao and tobacco spice, on a well balanced frame. Fine tight tannins, long finish ending with fruit, earthy spice and cedar character. Nice! — 2 days ago

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2005

A 3 hour decant has 05 Montrose showing beautifully, wafting layers of cassis, cedar and mocha with a silky and vibrant palate and fine grained tannins. Still so young but in a real nice spot. — 3 days ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

This was decanted in a cool wine cellar close to 12 h before we enjoyed it. It is very aromatic and inviting. Layered with dark fruits, pencil lead, five spice, nutmeg, preserves, orange peel, menthol and more. Great posture. Only 13,5 abv. — 12 days ago

Château Langoa Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

The 2009 is amazing.

No decanting, just opened up an hour or so before dinner.

Stunning Bordeaux. Fabulous fruit and character. If we have another bottle of this vintage, we'll try to push it back a few more years.

Trump ought to be shot as a traitor. People who vote for Trump in 2024 ought to be slapped, hard.

Sorry, that's me speaking, not the wine. 🙂

Château Lafon-Rochet

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2001

2001 Lafon-Rochet
Saint Estephe

Inky black with cassis, black currant and blackberry. Black pepper and lavender with a whiff of smoke and graphite. Plum and vine charcoal give a softness to the tannin which is amazingly strong. Graphite shimmers through dark cocoa, cedar and pepper. Lovely and lively.

Château Lilian Ladouys

Saint Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend

2021 vintage. This was my favourite at the Boissenot lab primeur tasting (77 wines, but no Crus Classés), and now that it is on the market, it gives you an idea what to expect from a good wine in this difficult vintage. Attractive nose, very fresh, with cassis and flowers. In the mouth it doesn't have the weight from the great vintages, but it is an impeccably balanced, lighter wine, juicy and fresh, with more than decent length. Very modestly priced too, very good value and ready to drink immediately. A blend of 53% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, and 1% Cabernet Franc. Abv. 13%. — 13 days ago

Château Léoville Poyferré

Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Medium deep ruby , quite narrow rim . Cedar tinged blackberry and blackcurrant fruit , truffle notes . Pencil lead , tobacco and grafite also . On the palate medium bodied with nice balanced acidity , polished tannin . Blackcurrant , cedar , truffle , mineral grafite notes . Quite classic and really enjoyable now . This can obviously go further though good now and over the next 10 , and will last a further 5-10 years. Singapore Airlines SIN- SYD — 18 days ago

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2020

Blend of 79% Cabernet, 14% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, deep Ruby with rich fruit aromas. On the palate flavors of blackberry and currants, with notes of licorice, tobacco, some floral and spicy oak. Fine tannins, long finish, ending with fruit, oak and spice. Nice but needs more bottle age, should last another 10 years. Nice! — 2 days ago

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

A murky purple magenta color, but still appears young. Very aromatic with beautiful notes of blackberry, perfume followed by sandalwood, wet rich soil, pencil lead and sweet oak. Tastes young with tannins still present leaving many years for aging. Primary flavors of blackberry cedar and bitter sweet chocolate with secondary notes of cassis, new leather, pepper, dried herbs, and gravel giving it a long dry finish. Should pair with our Neapolitan marinara pizza and pasta dinner tonight. Looking forward to see what another several years will add to its flavor profile. — 10 days ago
