Dry, nice acidity, Cabernet with tobacco and leather undertones. Smooth and bold — 14 days ago

Château Haut-Bages Libéral

le Haut-Medoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Oh - wow! Smooth operator as Sade herself would sing. A near perfect finish, complex and mature red fruit and that incredible French terroir on the palette. Perfect on the nose. This one will only get better with age! — 2 months ago

Domaine De L'Ostal Estibals Minervois Syrah Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Domaine de l'Ostal is owned by famous Bordeaux winemaker Jean-Michel Cazes (Pauillac Cru Classé Château Lynch-Bages and more recently Haut-Batailley). We can reasonably expect him to not put his name on a bad wine, and this Estobal (the second wine of the estate, the top wine being labeled Domaine de l'Ostal Grand Vin) surely delivers. Dark red. Intense perfume of blackberry jam, rosemary and dried flowers. Mouthfilling layered jammy fruit, with good acidity, smooth tannin and good spicy length. — 4 months ago

Liberal La Fleur De Haut Bages Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Slightly lighter body, good fruit, tannin a little strong but enjoyable, nicely integrated oak, tasted like partial stem to offer some vegetal notes. Really nice drinking! — a month ago

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Delectable Wine

The 2018 Grand Puy Lacoste has a quintessential Pauillac nose of intense black fruit infused with graphite scents, pencil shavings and a very discreet marine influence. It is beautifully defined, less opulent than the 2018 Lynch Bages tasted alongside, yet maybe more complex. The palate is medium-bodied and taut, offering sappy black fruit, gritty tannins and a lot of crushed stone. The focused, graphite-driven finish could only come from this appellation. Superb. A wine to correct those bemoaning that Bordeaux no longer makes "proper Claret." (Neal Martin, Vinous, March 2021)

Château Villa Bel-Air

Graves White Bordeaux Blend 2005

2016 vintage. 65% Sauvignon blanc with 35% Sémillon. At the time this estate was owned by Jean-Michel Cazes (Lynch Bages and more recently Haut-Batailley), but the current owners are the Groupe Ballande (Bordeaux négociants who also own Prieuré Lichine and Baret). Exotic fruit and a hint of flowers. Round and ripe with enough acidity in this warm vintage. Good length with impressions of vanilla. Good value. — 3 months ago
