Germain-Saincrit

Château Le Peuy Saincrit Bordeaux Supérieur Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

FINALLY - a French wine that is incredible in the USA. You know they keep the good stuff there! How do I describe this? The nose has a fresh mint bouquet. The initial palate is blueberry and black licorice. There is a back seat to blackberry and raspberry. The mid palate has chocolate and hints of oak all over it. The finish is extremely dry and lingering with a tart finish! — 4 days ago

Château Margaux

Pavillon Rouge Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Opened this afternoon. Very astringent finish initially with lots of oak and ash. The nose initially was worthy of a 96. Wildflowers, herb-rich, sweet fruit, but quite a bit of oak. Palate was soft, yet rather powerful. Wild herb, black cherry, fig, ash, sweet tobacco and rather complex. Would have gone perfectly with a marinated pork loin and herb roasted potatoes. Still getting quite a bit of astringency and acidity on the finish. Capable of so much more. Goes to show you the structure of the second wine of Ch Margaux! — 3 days ago

Nice vintage and shows some of the DNA of its big brother.

Very nice bottle for Mark to open on a Wed afternoon. Initially pop and poured before we got it in to a decanter quickly. Surprised (in a good way) by the smoked meat aromatics! Not Rhône like smoked meat, but more just a touch of sweet and savory smoke with peppercorn. Herbal and quite floral too aromatically. Obviously still young and on the upward trajectory, it was quite chewy. Bay leaf, underripe black cherry and plum with sweet tobacco leaves rounded out the palate with stiff tannin at the finish. I’m sure this uncoiled a bit after decanting, but I’d hold for another 5yrs to get full enjoyment. Thanks Mark!

Château Clinet

Ronan Bordeaux Merlot 2015

Very enjoyable Bordeaux....can't remember the last time I enjoyed a table red so much
The quality of this Bordeaux was amazing. 100% Merlot with a nice balanced acidity with notes of black cherry, blackberries, tobacco, herbs, and velvety jammy finish. I am a huge fan of Château Clinet and this was quite an enjoyable surprise! Cheers! 🍷a 92 might be a high rating for a Bordeaux superior, but I really liked this!

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Réserve de la Comtesse Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Friday night is here and I have opened the 2015 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Réserve de la Comtesse a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.

The nose is is rich in dark fruit, black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black plum, mocha, tar, cedar and dark rich soil.

On the palate the dark fruit continues through with black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, licorice, oak, graphite and rich earthy notes.

This wine is full bodied with a silky mouth feel, medium + acidity and medium + fine tannins that lead to a long dark fruit earthy finish. Have a great weekend, stay safe and have some nice wines. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Peter - any Bordeaux recos that are approachable? One wine I don’t know a lot about.

@Kevin Hyatt— since I’m a NYer I can’t resist giving directions even if I’m not sure(Bordeaux is not my strong suit, spent many years in an anti snobbish, but snobbish, snit against Bordeaux). That said, I’m going to assume your price point is below 50$, & ideally below 30$: for Blanc, my perennial love is : Château Ducasse, a heavy on the semillion blend. I have some reviews probably here. For red, ignoring the 100$ field,-Chateau Gruaud Larose is a favorite-I prefer “older”, ie leafier & less fruity. That said, Chateau Gloria for around 50$, though richer than I prefer. For under 20$ there are a surprising number of Bordeaux of good quality-chateau Prade 2016 you can get at the Inwood store we talked @ for under 18$. Any Bordeaux superior from ‘15 is worth a snag almost!

Château Guiraud

Le G De Bordeaux Blanc Sec White Bordeaux Blend 2011

The 2011 ‘Le G’ by Chateau Guiraud is simply gorgeous from this great vintage for white wine in Bordeaux. Balanced and silky, with a plush mouthfeel, the wine delivers bright Gravenstein apple, cantaloupe, and brandy and clove infused Bosc pear flavors that mingle with minerals and shades of wild mushroom. Outstanding now, I can’t imagine this improving with age, as this is best enjoyed over the next several years. Drink 2019-2024- 91 — 14 days ago

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Le Petit Haut Lafitte Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Estate dates back to Crusades & Scottish navigator, George Smith, owner in the 18th century. Followed by M. Duffour-Dubergier, Mayor of Bordeaux, then Louis Eschenauer, a famous wine shipper. In 1990, Daniel & Florence Cathiard now own estate. Blend of 60% Cab Sauv & 40% Merlot, dark berry aromas, herbs and earthy spice. Palate is complex with cherry & currant flavors, pepper, tobacco & cacao notes. Soft tannins, rich and full, lingering, earthy, mineral ending, needs a bit of time. — 18 days ago
