Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1945

Delectable Wine

This bottle of 1945 Mouton-Rothschild is my fourth encounter and actually showed better than one poured three months earlier that came directly from the château. Ethereal as always on the nose, that distinctive menthol scent is present and correct, and this bottle is perhaps more elegant and almost Burgundian in style. The palate has heavenly balance, quite opulent and velvety, with morello cherry, raspberry preserve, orange pith and a delicate touch of cedar on the never-ending finish. Monumental. Tasted at Koala's 1945 dinner. (Neal Martin, Vinous, May 2020)

Vieux Château Certan

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1945

Tasted blind. Tawny color, dark and opaque. Notes of mocha, slate stone, smoked meats, blueberries. Seems like a La La - maybe La Turque? Dry and tight in the mouth, but turned more silky as it gained air in the glass. Evolved and showed different characteristics. Added some tobacco leaf, some herbal thing, some menthol. While the nose says Cote-Rotie, the mouth says it's probably not. Lucious and silky, what a treat. Bottle reportedly was VTS fill. This is in no way past it’s prime yet. — 8 months ago

Château Haut-Brion

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1945

From a great looking bottle with a mid-shoulder fill and an appropriate plug. Reddish amber color, it looks amazing and smells even better. Exotic perfume with notes of rose petals, tobacco leaf, cola, leather saddle, Cuban cigar and some menthol. Some cranberry and walnut notes develop too. Lots of red fruit. Slow-ox'd it for 4 hours, then gave it 30 min in a decant, then back in the bottle for enjoyment through the evening. This never tired, and showed continual improvement until it was gone. Drinking history. Decided to go side by side... 45 vs 61 vs 89. Tonight the 61 was better than the 45 but not by much. The 89 may eclipse both in 30 years tho. (Bday 10 of 13) — 3 months ago

What a line-up. Not often the 89 HB is the ugly sister. Happy birthday!

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1945

Delectable Wine

The 1945 Haut-Brion is poured against the legendary 1945 Mouton and might just have come out on top. It is difficult to put this wine into words. Showing modest bricking, it presents a sublime bouquet of vibrant red fruit, warm gravel, wilted rose petals and a hint of earthenware. It is crystalline in terms of definition. The palate follows suit with pitch-perfect acidity, a very slight, refreshing hint of balsamic, and finely chiseled tannins. Beguiling in every way, this is a profound Haut-Brion that is absolutely flawless. Tasted at Koala's 1945 dinner. (Neal Martin, Vinous, May 2020)

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1945

Delectable Wine

The 1945 La Mission Haut-Brion from the château cellar is transcendental. It is blessed with the most beautiful bouquet you can imagine, effortless and natural, featuring woodland, red-berried fruits, a minerally quality and a faint touch of leafiness; given time to settle, it develops a lovely gamy note. The palate is medium- rather than full-bodied and sublimely balanced, upholding that effortless grace with an elegant, bittersweet, dried orange peel finish. One of the most harmonious wines I have ever consumed. Perfect. Tasted at the La Mission Haut-Brion vertical in London in September 2009. (Neal Martin, Vinous, May 2020)

18.5 very special. Such a complete wine, rich but not cloying, very long. Perfect with Stilton. But even better by itself. — 6 months ago
