Bordeaux Merlot

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 — 7 days ago

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Top Bordeaux in a top vintage. Still can go 20 years easy. The part that struck me was the different layers that built up after you sip the wine. Takes you on a beautiful trip — 10 hours ago

Bordeaux Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Possibly my fav red I have tried so far! Easy to drink & has a great balance between being fruity and dry which will be down to the fact it is a blend of Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon. — 6 days ago
