Château Beau-Séjour Bécot

Instant Becot 2015

Vintage 2015 / To be honest I am not a great fan of Bordeaux Brands. Usually quality is decent to poor. This brand is new. The Bécot family puts it name on it. The winemaking is overseen by the same team as Château Beausejour-Bécot: “the same attention and care as it sibling”. Says the back label. Grapes from old vines. 84% merlot 13% cabernet franc 2% cabernet sauvignon 1% Malbec. It’s a truly good and juicy Bordeaux with expressive red fruit in smell, still ripe tannins and good backbone. Opens up with aeration, roundness. Very good basic Bordeaux from the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux. Great value for money. / Paired with venison — 12 days ago

Château Clos L'Eglise

Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Color of dark burgundy with some orange tone on the rim. Nose is nice with dried sweet strawberries, spice, hickory, some leather, mineral, cherry, all morphed together. Taste of still very solid acidity and tannins, chewy, fresh grapes, a bit zesty, a bit bitter, slightly sweet, and quite tasty. Aftertaste shows some more oak, mineral note, peppery, and some more ripe grapes. Very good to enjoy now. — 22 days ago

Château Marsau

Côtes de Francs Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Very drinkable. Lots of tannins and still young. Pine and black cherry notes. Probably better and more interesting in a few years. — 13 hours ago

Richness & round interphase & wrap lemon nicely.


If you live in & around the greater Bay Area, you owe to yourself to attend one of the dinners Hedy holds 4-5 times a year. Not only is the food amongst the very best we had, the people that attend and environment are as equally good. Find Hedy @Plate&Bottle

Forgot to take formal notes on this wine, but it was quite nice and an excellent value for around $10. Typical Bordeaux sauv blanc, with nice citrus and acidity. Nothing too complex.
88 -89 pt range.

Château Lynch-Bages

Blanc de Lynch-Bages White Bordeaux Blend 2016

9.1

These are good young but, needs 6-10 plus to really shine and show more on the palate.

The nose reveals; melon tropicals, stone fruits, white citrus, beautiful minerality, wet stones, yellow lilies and spring flowers.

The body is thick, rich and just touch waxy. Melon tropicals, pineapple, stone fruits, white citrus, gripping volcanic minerality, white spice, wet stones, yellow lilies and spring flowers. Excellent round acidity and balanced, well polished finish. Picks up 2-4 points with the right bottle age.
