Château de la Louvière

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Nice 👍🏼
Dark Web info

Château La Louvière has many fascinating facets. The sumptuous architecture of the château building dates from the late 18th century, but winegrowing here goes back more than 700 years. The first vines were planted circa 1310, although modern winemaking dates from the 17th century and was handed down by able monks from the Carthusian monastery in Bordeaux, who had acquired considerable talent as viticulturists and winemakers. The people who produce the wine in the 21st century have inherited these time-honoured methods, adding just the right amount of innovation and modernity to make the utmost of the outstanding terroir. La Louvière's red wine has a dark colour and an elegant bouquet with delicate hints of oak...

Château Guiraud

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

Columbia County 3.0: Apparently I’m one wine away from my 2,000th reviewed on Delectable, which is probably an odd milestone I would not have even conceived of when starting. What better way to celebrate than with the queen bee of wines (?), royalty w grace : an utterly intense & laser- focused Sauternes. Apricot & pineapple perfumed to the point of raising the rafters. Floods the mouth w quince, candied apricot & pineapple. This may be only its half life, & that’s understating it. — 10 days ago

Château Larrivet Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Good old-fashioned style claret. Saturated color. Nose has cedar, smoky gravel, a subtle menthol note, and cassis fruit. Equal parts dark fruit and gravelly minerality in the mouth. Dry impression, and no extra fat on this one. Tannins are soft and don’t intrude. — 10 days ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2003

Exotic with all the dried fruits and flowers notes. Rich, dense and great to drink now. Does not have the complexity of more classical vintages but its really good stuff. — a month ago

Château de Fargues

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2008

2008 vintage. From the family that used to own Château d’Yquem until the turn of the century. 80% Semillon/20% Sauvignon Blanc. Vinified like d’Yquem and still a fantastic value. This is lights out, phenomenal juice. If you haven’t had, don’t miss out. Not a lot gets made so not exactly easy to find but definitely worth the time/trouble bounty hunting. — 10 days ago

Château Suduiraut

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2010

Rollercoaster of orange, pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, clementine and clove. Sweet almond notes intertwine with honeysuckle, honey, bee pollen and mixed marmalade. Orange marmalade prevails on the palate with poached pear and nectarine, quince and beeswax. Excellent in all ways.

La suite, un 85 qui est à point, les notes classique d’un Bordeaux de 38 ans. De belles notes tabac, boite à cigare, terre humide, champignons. Belle finesse, belle longueur. — 18 days ago
