Bordeaux Cabernet Sauvignon

Château La Vieille Cure

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

The wine I have opened tonight is the 2016 Château La Vieille Cure. 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc.

On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, black plum, bell pepper, black pepper, licorice, violets, oak and earth.

On the palate I am getting nice dark fruit, black cherry, blackberry, plum, green bell pepper, leafy herbs, cassis, black pepper and earth.

The wine is medium to full bodied with mouth watering medium + to high acidity and medium + fine tannins that leads right into a long dark fruit finish. This is a very nice Right Bank Bordeaux. I hope everyone is having a great weekend with family and friends? Please be safe and enjoy the rest of the weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Huge fan of this producer and they have the ability to age for decades. They won’t blow you’re mind but they will surprise.

Château Le Puy

Emilien Côtes de Francs Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Very pleasant. Tannins fully resolved. Bright cherry and some pyrazines on the palate. — 4 days ago

Clos du Jaugueyron

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Inky dense cassis flavors that just continue on but it’s not ready to show more layers. The graphite suggests it, and so does the natural wine press, but it’s still unidimensional another year on. — a day ago

Nice young Bordeaux. Nice Bordeaux nose. Floral. Just nice and light. Should keep drinking as it ages nicely. — 3 days ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2007

If somebody can find a better way to finish lunch then this, please let me know! A perfect balance of cooked apricots and honey. As usual, the crème brûlée didn’t hurt us at all either! — 6 days ago

Great Brdx Superior! Red and black cherry and oak notes. Full bodied, plenty and bit chewy tannins, but chrisp acidy to balance it all. Excelent QPR! — 11 days ago

Château La Lagune

Moulin de la Lagune Haut-Médoc Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

Definitely a superwell made wine. Lacking complexity, probably due to an early opening. Very enjoyable and fresh. It would get easily 94 if wasn’t for the short and harsh finish — a day ago
