Pauillac, Médoc

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Still showing some youth. After 31 years, the tannins have mostly mellowed out, but still holds on to ripe red fruit and wild sage flavors. — 8 days ago

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron 1990

Appearance
Dark ruby - minimal browning. Really surprisingly youthful in appearance for a wine of this age
Loads of sediment in the bottle, decanted and served immediately

Aroma
Intense floral aromas, rose bouquet, leading into fresh tomato leaf. The fruit is very present, but precise, blackcurrant. Combined with the pencil lead that follows it’s so representative of place. There is no barnyard on this wine and very little leather. Slight dried tobacco, with high-toned cedar and faint cinnamon and cardamom spice rounding out the nose.

Palate
The wine is lively on the palate, with the fruit tending red. Fine-grained but not yet resolved tannins, as well as lively still medium+ acidity hold up the wine nicely through a fruity and slightly herbaceous finish which lasts at least a minute.

Exceptional wine on a great night. This wine blew us all away by its freshness and felt like it has 5-10 years to go before reaching full maturity. I personally loved the freshness and tension it still brought and for me this has got to be the peak, but we all agreed that it would be so enjoyable to revisit this bottle 10 years from now.

Paired with braised lamb shank in red wine reduction with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots.

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Dark ruby color. Dark fruit on the nose with wet stone and dark fruit on the palate. Smooth intense finish that lingers. This wine took over an hour in the decanter to open up. It was worth the wait. — 20 days ago

Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

1995 vintage. Integrated nose. A quick explosion of plummy fruit on the immediate intake with it just as quickly withdrawn into the maelstrom. Holding steady. Don’t see it getting better but it can hold this line for at least another half-decade. — 14 days ago

Château La Tour Carnet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

18 years old and also 18 years young. There is a history here, with a future ahead. This wine came a long way baby! Fruit of the forest, licorice, incredibly rich and bursting with life. Voluptuous and warm, coffee, butterscotch, powdery and integrated tannin. It’s shining. Cheers Floor. Here’s to adulthood! — 9 days ago
