95% merlot blend from Anne & Jacques Thienpont of amongst others Le Pin. Very approachable already but I think it will improve more with some more shelflife. 92+ excellent qpr. — 2 days ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

1 hour plus decant. Dark red color. Nose contains graphite, black cherry, and some medicinal elements. Wine has more oak than expected but nice cherry fruit. Awesome texture and great depth. Medium plus finish. Not as good as the ‘12 I recently had, but still one of my favorite producers! — 2 days ago

Château Fontana

Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Chateau Fontana 2016 is excellent value for quality. Medium body. Deep crimson. Good terroir. Some fruit, particularly prune. A bit musty, in a good way. All around nice Bordeaux. — 12 days ago

Château Feytit Clinet

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1975

Wow😀 just a high quality Pomerol with 45years. Cork was in good shape and the sediment was rather compact. The aromatics swelled up with air and decanting. Moderate loss of color but high retention of fruit and medium long flavors. Not super tannic like many 1975’s. Wonderful 🍷🍷🍷 — 10 days ago

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

We had the 2000 with the Allen Brothers Ribcap’s. Might have been the most tender cut of meat we had. Even more tender than their Bone-in Fillets. Allen Brothers is currently selling to consumers during Covid-19 as most restaurants are shut or barely open. Order online before the go back to restaurant only sales. You’ll be glad you did. You can see on their site what revered steakhouses they sell their beef etc. Cooked them in the Green Egg. 👌

Perhaps the first 2000 that I’ve opened that was truly ready. Yet, it will improve for another 5-7 years and hold for another 5-10 years properly stored.

The tannins were round and supple...like velvet. Good balance fruit & earth. The structure, tension, length and balance just hit a good stride. Dark, rich, but, muted fruits, dark chocolate, mocha powder, touch of caramel, nicely layer baking spices, dark rich earth, clay, stone, fresh, soft tobacco notes, saddle-wood, soft graphite notes with fresh & withering dark flowers. The acidity nice & round...definitely shows the strength of the vintage. The finish, well balanced-knitted, plush, velvety, flat out elegant & smooth.

Photos of, Chateau Belle-Vue, living area shot of inside the Chateau, perfect fruit ready for harvest and their barrel room.

Château Marjosse

Bordeaux Blanc White Bordeaux Blend 2016

All sorts of mineral and chervil and just blooming honeysuckle. Golden hued with a bit of sap. All sort of understated but just complex enough and thirst quenching enough to keep one going. I believe there is a goodly amount of Semillon and a smidge of Muscadelle at play here, it is not especially expressive of Sauvignon Blanc but, you get it. Quite elegant. Rather balanced. I can drink a lot of it. And I suppose I shall it’s lockdown time, what else to do? — 7 days ago
