Bordeaux Cabernet Sauvignon

Château Haut-Marbuzet

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1987

Leather, earth, woods, raspberry, Blue berries, spices. Wonderful old medoc nose, progressively reaching its dawn though. Palate with a strong acid backbone, fully integrated and a bit dusty tannins, raspberry and cherry, mushrooms and chocolate. The finish is quite quick with a bitter chocolate taste. Still very alive — 7 days ago

Château Peyrat-Fourthon

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Nose of black currant, meat, black berry. Very interesting palate with black currant again, a fierce acid backbone, quite not fully integrated, a bit vivid tannins, a silky touch, a good width with salt on the sides, and a nice long salty bitter fruity finish. Pretty much everything a medoc should be to be very enjoyable — 15 days ago

Château Thieuley

Sec Bordeaux Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Good wine but it doesn’t remind me of a Bordeaux. If blind tasted I would immediately start with an earthy Tuscan white. Anyhow, cheers. — 16 hours ago

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Night cap. Wonderful restrained flavors. The plum and cassis is balanced with good acid and still firm tannins. Nice wine from an estate that is looking improve the quality of its wines. — 22 days ago

Château Berliquet

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Well, here it is the first weekend December and a finish to another year is upon us. I have opened the 2010 Château Berliquet to start the last month of the year off right. The blend to this Right Bank Bordeaux is 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

On the nose there is luscious black fruit, black cherry, sweet black plum, blackberry, black currant, herbal notes, clove and sweet silky chocolate.

The palate reveals the same luscious black fruit, black cherry, blackberry, black currant, black plum, green bell pepper, clove and a soft minerality.

This wine is well balanced and well structured with medium to full bodied with fine medium + acidity, medium + smooth firm drying tannin and the finish is long with continued dark fruit to the end. Have a great weekend and a safe and to 2017. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

An experiment for me that appears to have worked. A lovely Bdx example that has aged gracefully. Still so fresh. Lovely notes of plums and blackberries, delicate oak treatment, finishing with a hint of licorice. Plush tannins and soft acidity. Very nice indeed. — 18 days ago

I love wines from Margaux. They are the perfect blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varietals and are far different than a Bordeaux in that they are not as tannic. Glad to see you enjoyed it! Cheers! @Ron R

Hey @Stephen Pierron, thanks for the input. I'm totally aligned with you. And this producer creates magic in the $25 range.

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

After a long day of golf, enjoying this with pizza and the Big Ten Championship. Who do I want to see lose? 😂 Loads of Black cherry and really, really dark color in the glass. Needed a decant but was enjoyable nonetheless. IMO This has at least another decade - or two- ahead of it. — 13 days ago

Château la Grange Clinet

Grande Réserve Côtes De Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Looks quite grand but image isn't everything. On the more elegant side of Bordeaux wines, with lots of Merlot in there. Very flexible when it comes to food choices. Good for fifteen bucks or so. — 15 days ago
