Our first 2018 vintage experience, exciting stuff. 👍 — 5 days ago
Second wine of Pichon Baron. Pretty darn solid - a great effort, I think. On the nose dark cherries, frothy mocha, oaky vanilla, licorice, leather, and blackberries. On the palate, wow...tannins 👀 very pronounced. Cedar, sawdust, baked plums with baking spices. A little on the austere side at this point in its lifespan but nothing that a little time in the bottle can’t remedy. The perfect selection to break in (not literally, hopefully 🤞🏻) my new Riedel Superleggero Bordeaux Grand Cru stemware. — 18 hours ago
The 2016 de Reignac is an absolute joy to taste. Raspberry jam, mocha, plum and spice flavors are lifted by expressive floral notes in a mid-weight, Merlot-based Bordeaux Supérieur that will drink well right out of the gate. This is a fabulous wine for the money. $13.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2019) — 12 days ago
These old wines need time to open and tasting it as soon as opened it seemed very flat and not much going on. After decanting and sitting around for a few hours it opened up and was still getting better as I fought to get the last bit at a dinner party, very rude guests who drank it all, just sayin. Had a great nose with some flowers, mushrooms, some earth and something sweet going on. A bit rich and had very nice long finish. Excellent wine. — 9 days ago
Not sure if this is the right one as the label says White Bordeaux Wine, and I’m pretty sure it’s a blend with Sauvignon Blanc. Regardless, pear, green apple, and honey on the nose. Apricot, peach, pink bubblegum, and ivy on the palate. — a day ago
Pale golden yellow in appearance. Rich nose with layers of pineapple, kiwi, honeysuckle, vanilla bean and bees wax. Well rounded acidity (6/10) and medium minus body. Palate grows on you with a pinch of sweetness as well as tons of tropical fruits, citrus rind, honeycomb and a touch of wax. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2029. — 15 days ago
Good looking bottle and fill. Reddish tawny, brighter and younger looking than the 94 Dominus mag next to it. Fruit forward nose. Notes of red currant fruit, plums, gravel stone, some cassis and a little cigar box. Pleasant in the mouth. Still has some structure to go with the fruit. Shorter than desired finish. Most liked this over the Dominus. — 6 days ago
The man, the myth... his cellar was stormed. This Palmer was opened for 90 mins, and it presents like it was just bottled. Beautiful detail of toasted oak on the nose. Palate shows rich, extracted black fruits, with bold tannins. Bowled over with how this showed today. — 7 days ago
