St. Hugo

Château Macquin (Saint Georges)

Saint-Georges-Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

2017 vintage. Pretty solid fruit balanced with tannins/structure. Really good QPR/bang for the buck. Finishes smooth without that greenish acidity that plagues most Bordeaux in this price range. — 5 days ago

Château Figeac

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Very dark ruby robe that does not show the 39 years of the wine. Enthralling nose of cedar, tobacco and top soil notes, followed by a medium bodied, long and elegant mouth made of dark fruits, leather, asian spices and a hint of licorice. This is an amazing bottle by any counts and its in its infancy, lots of tension here. Phenomenal drinking now but trust us, no rush. Wow !! — a day ago

Special wine for a very special occasion. Perfect match!

Château Villemaurine

St. Émilion Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

2018 vintage. Mint, cinnamon, molasses, spent coffee grounds, cassis and orange peel compose the bouquet. Medium body but medium/big tannins. Orange-based tea and earthy finish. Meanders in an endearing manner with just enough richness to coat and mitigate multiple astringent flavors…and ultimately…comes into focus pushing a really delicious balance. Ignore at your own peril/price point. — 8 days ago

Château Saint-Pierre

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

2014 vintage. Super dry and powerful. Medium bodied but drinking like it’s (ballad of a) the thin man. Smoke/char in the nose. Upfront coffee/tobacco and raspberry flavors but little else. Not a good introductory Bordeaux for the masses. For those already smitten, I can see this going 40+ years but there will never be fat years. This is a (c)lean machine. Monolithic and totally old-school Bordeaux. — 6 days ago

Château Pavie Macquin

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

2017 vintage. Oh. Wow. Blue/black fruit, dusty cedar and rhubarb in the nose. Silky medium body. The cedar (and a bit of oak) galloping through on a body thinning finish that ends up supremely dry after collecting zinc, orange peel and sea salt. This baby needs some TLC in the cellar and will grow up to be an absolute monster. — 9 days ago

Château Figeac

La Grange Neuve de Figeac Saint- Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Not an easy vintage for anyone in bordeaux. This is very elegant and understated with this sophisticated blend of Merlot and the cabernets. Right bank meets left bank and is a good cross. One of the last vintages of the old regime at Figeac and highly recommended !! — 22 days ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Back to 1982 and this lovely LLC. Tons of cassis, spice, blue fruits, clove and this ethereal quality that makes 82 feel like magic in a bottle. The tannins are completely melted but this wine is layered with texture with just a hint of sweetness on the palate. I think I prefer the 1989 LLC just a tad more as there’s more complexity on the bouquet, but this is just a magic bottle. — a day ago

Château Lassègue

Saint Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Around 25 ha of vines, limestone clay and the average age of the vines is 45 years. Dominated by Merlot (65%) with CF and CS (25-10%). Red and black fruit, some flowers and five spices. Very smooth and soft tannins on the pallet, drinking remarkable well for young wine like this! Thumbs up from the queen so happy with this OWC for a bargain. — 8 days ago

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Undistinguished nose. Light/medium body. Comes on like a freight train of concentrated flavors with a tremendously sleek and polished finish. Drinking beautifully now but no rush. — 4 hours ago

If you open one early make sure you have some 🥩 on hand, needs a long decant obviously.
