Very smooth, good legs — 4 days ago
Great QPR on#winetext. Plum, cassis, pipe smoke, and leather. Dry, chewy tannins with ripe dark berry pie and plum fruits. Soft and smooth to finish with subtle earthy green notes. Drink now or hold for a couple years. — 18 days ago
Very good, balanced and easy to drink. Bought from Hiramatsu for about ¥2,500. — 18 days ago
I am more and more convinced that the wines from Chateau La Vieille Cure are made for the pleasure of those who truly love old school Bordeaux. There is absolute nothing modern about them. Dark currants, earth, pencil shavings, olive tapenade, and mushrooms. About as rustic as they come. Tannins are well integrated but the structure is holding fast. While I think it’s safe to say that the 2005 has entered its gradual, graceful decline, I have no doubt in my mind this will deliver the goods for at least a decade. — 21 days ago
Time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.
Ruby in color with wide reddish/ brick rim.
Pretty nose with blueberries, plums, red currants, spices, wet leaves, oak, tobacco leaf, pencil lead, earth, black tea, thyme, light vinaigrette and black pepper. Very aromatic.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.
Dry on the palate with plums, blueberries, cranberries, currants, oak, tobacco, earth, bitter herbs, spices, wet leaves, coffee, cola, pencil lead, black tea and black pepper.
Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy pomegranates.
This young Merlot based Bordeaux is starting to show its potential. From a great vintage, and still has a lot of room to grow. A good quality wine.
The nose is already beautiful and I loved smelling on it for a while.
Needs a couple of hours to open up properly. Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years. Still young and tight.
Still a bit unbalanced and better with food right now. I paired it with Brie cheese, olives and crackers.
A blend of 65% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot. Kosher.
14% alcohol by volume.
$50. — 18 hours ago
Really smooth, easy-drinking Bordeaux. Very nice, but a bit pricey (CHF 30). — 8 days ago
One of our preferred wines. A great assemblage of Merlot and Cabernet Franc with great floral notes intertwined with earthy and spicy aromas and flavors. A bomb fruit as well but with very polished tannins and medium body and freshness that’s wonderful with food. Great now but absolutely no rush. This is Pomerol at its best and enthusiastically recommended ! — 10 hours ago
