Château La Brande

Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Medium to full bodied, ripe blackcurrent, dark, slightly sour cherry, fresh zip of acidity, thick pillowy tannin, nice long dry savoury finish. Took a good couple of hours to fill out. 70% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. 12€, good value. — 5 days ago

Château d'Esther

Supérieur Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

A deep, full bodied blend with a prominence of Merlot (56%). Plum and apple notes with a soothing and mellow aftertaste..
One of the best I've tasted in the region.
A superb wine that I will be taking home with me...

Peter - any Bordeaux recos that are approachable? One wine I don’t know a lot about.

Château de Camarsac (Thierry Lurton)

Selection Vieilles Vignes Supérieur Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

I got this wine from a good friend. I’m not usually a Bordeaux fan but I thought this was delicious! I had spaghetti tonight so I thought I would see how this wine paired. It was very good! — 11 days ago

Château Chasse-Spleen

Bordeaux Contrôlée Blanc 2016

Lemon, an herbal thing, grapefruit, white pepper. Very nice. The palate is very well balanced with some straight forward acid backbone with a layer of white pepper, a layer of lemon, a very sweet mouthfeel and a good grip at the same time. Long finish with an herbal thing, white pepper and lemon. 2013 was a very fond memory, 2016 might be better. — 9 days ago

Château Belrose

Vieilles Vignes Maucaillou Bordeaux Supérieur Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

I enjoyed this one on a hammock in an apple orchard in Auvergne so that may bias my rating... A nice backbone with fruit to bear. I thought it was quite good. — 6 days ago

Domaine de Chevalier

Clos des Lunes Lune d'Argent Bordeaux Blanc Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2017

Herbal nose with a hint of lemon, some mineral thing going on too like crushed oyster shell. The palate is a model of balance with a sheer acid backbone and some layers of fruits, grip and a salty touch too. Good grip before a long finish with salt and lemon. 2nd take of the same vintage in 2 days. Killer value! — 14 days ago

Château Massereau

Cuvée K Bordeaux Superieur Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Bordeaux from the natural wine camp—it tastes honest and authentic and hits all the right traditional notes. Aged 10 years in bottle before release. Dark berries, cedar, tobacco, even a bit floral. “Natural” wine or not, it’s what’s in the bottle that matters and this delivers — 9 days ago

9.1

Drank 7/8/19. Happy 3rd to My daughter!! Very nice with a T-bone. (She enjoyed pizza!)

Plums, earth, and graphite on the classic right bank nose. Flavors of plum, BlackBerry, and soggy earth mix with well integrated medium tannins. Medium + finish dominated by black fruit, tar, and earth. Drinking nicely now, but should hold for 3-5 years.

Château Duhart Milon

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

(Tasted blind, correctly guessed 1989 left bank Bordeaux) Even more gratifying than correctly guessing the wine, the 1989 Chateau Duhart-Milon is a resounding success to savor from this great vintage in Bordeaux. At now thirty years of age, the wine is still highly polished and focused, showing a beautiful array of aromatics from graphite to damp earthy tones that collide with shades of wild mushroom, wet stone and black currants that are all taking shape in the glass. Soft and generous on the mouth, the wine dances with a beam of salinity that cuts through the lovely layers of black fruits, peat moss and herbal undertones of the wine. Still quite lively and energetic, the 1989 Chateau Duhart-Milon is drinking marvelously at this stage in its development and has at least another decade of drinking pleasure left. Drink 2019-2029- 94 — 6 days ago
