Puisseguin St. Émilion, Libournais

Château Bellisle Mondotte

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

A touch hot but otherwise an unpretentious and delicious right bank Bdx (80 merlot / 20 cab franc). Dark fruits—plums and blueberry—plus tobacco and plenty of earth and umami. Pair with anything roasted or grilled and a summer evening watching the fireflies — 4 days ago

Bright expression. Agreed it’s got decades in front of it. Just don’t see it getting any better. @Mike R

@Mike R Love the Angus Barn. I’m originally from the RDU area. My folks still live there. Do you live in that area? If so, maybe we can have a glass sometime when I’m in town.

Yep I’m in the RDU area and of course will share a glass or two - just need a little time to plan it as I travel a lot

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Fantastic bottle from a really cool and old school St. Emillion producer - the limestone storage caves were a sight to behold.. Grabbed one of these for the cellar - excited to see how good this will be in 10-15 years. — a month ago

Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes

Comtes de Neipperg St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Rich right bank Bordeaux. Full bodied. Hit on all cylinders from the beginning until the end. Dark fruit that transitioned from the front of your mouth to your cheeks as the tannins kicked in. Smooth finish. — 15 days ago

Château Puy-Razac

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Though it’s very difficult for me to find a reasonably-priced Bordeaux I actually like, this is one. Bright nose shows dark cherry, cedar shavings, gravel, and a deep woodsy scent. Good cherry-centric fruit, loads of acidity, and a very bright mouthfeel. The acids feel almost like the bright, accentuated acids I associate with Paso Robles limestone soil. Not particularly long or complex in the mouth, but resonates more on the *fun* scale. — 18 days ago

Chateau de Valandraud

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

One of my fav 98’s right banks that in its youth had an almost exotic feel that offered up a sweet savory raspberry, plum fruits that was still present just toned down a bit with a mocha, graphite, spice box, leather & tobacco. — 21 days ago
