Château d'Yquem

Y Ygrec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1972

This was in prime health at the tender age of 47. Beautifully aromatic and it tasted just as I imagined dry Sauternes would. A lovely curio for a school night - 1972 — 7 days ago

Kirkland Signature

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Nose has dried cherry, dried rose petals, dark chocolate bar, ripe plum and distant cedar closet.
Palate has prune, dried cherry (unsweetened), dried raspberry, (light) canned plum tomato, grippy tannins and medium finish.
Honestly, much better than I was expecting, it's punching above the ~$23 price point; way to go Costco! I'll be intrigued to see if a 2016 version shows up, I'll surely be buying it, even if it's a little above this cost.
Decanted 3+ hours, paired with a whole chicken from the slow cooker, great.

@Peter Sultan For real! If there's a 2016, or any 2016 BDX showing up at my Costco, I'll be buying several bottles! Generally I'm a one and done guy on Costco wines. Too much other stuff to enjoy already in the cellar.

Château Brane-Cantenac

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Happy Thanksgiving!! This was really good on PnP, but didn’t improve and may have even weakened after air in the bottle. Phenomenal nose of earth, dust, and tar. Classic Bordeaux. Good structure with dark fruit. Finish is medium plus. I would drink sooner rather than later even though it’s a 2010. — 6 days ago

Château Bechereau Philipperie

Cru Bourgeois Grand Vin de Sauternes White Bordeaux Blend 1983

Château Bechereau Philipperie Grand Vin de Sauternes 1983 Bordeaux, France

This is a nicely aged sweet wine from Bordeaux.

Brownish in color with a brick hue.

Great nose, although a little stinky, with honey, vegetables, herbs, wet leaves, citrus and Indian spices light curry and cumin.

Medium plus in body and buttery, with medium plus acidity.

Sweet on the palate with limes, citrus, honey, apples, earth, wood, over ripened pears, honey, Indian spices and black pepper.

This is an interesting sweet wine, but i prefer these younger.

This 36 year old is nicely balanced and enjoyable by itself. Not too sweet, with a lot of complexity. A little bitter on the ending. Spicy and tangy.

I paired it with a Macadamia Nut ice cream.

The nose is very overwhelming, so I figured I need to give it a day to chill out, which was a great idea.

Next day update: It's good that I didn't post my review yesterday, as this is a nice surprise. A tastier wine today.

Lost most of the bitter and vegetables notes, and it is showing very nicely.

If you have one, let it open up for a long time. Delicious and complex.

13% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Château de Camarsac (Thierry Lurton)

Selection Vieilles Vignes Supérieur Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Dark and somewhat clear red purple in the glass. Shy nose of dark plum with subtle oak notes. On the palate, dark plum, black cherry, subtle vanilla oak, medium acidity, and medium plus tannins. Finish is medium long yielding dusty red-purple fruit and birch. An incredible QPR on this Bordeaux Superieur. Enjoy with steak, prime rib, hard cheeses, or cassoulet. Drink now through 2021. — 18 days ago

Château Lafont-Fourcat

White Bordeaux Blend 2018

Trying new whites because I want to expand my knowledge on them. This is something I’ve never tried. To me, it has the creaminess of a Chardonnay and the juiciness of a Sauvignon Blanc. And....I’ve almost finished the whole bottle, it’s that good! 😲 — 14 days ago

Château Dalem

Fronsac Merlot Cabernet Franc 2014

Tar, cedar, spices, tobacco a bit, blackberry, black currant, a bit of mint too. There is a bit of oak too. The palate is well structured with a strong acid backbone, lots of matter all along with a nice soft touch on the sides. Then come the tannins wich are still very lively and pointy. They add a complex layer wich turns to a bit of bitter finish, with a pinch of salt, some meat juice, some black currant too. Below 9 for the finish which is a bit hard and unresolved/unresolved — 5 days ago
