Château Rauzan-Ségla

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

1.5hr decant. Dark red color with brownish hues that shows the wines age. I would say this is just past prime drinking age. Nose contains violets and cedar as I’ve come to expect from Rauzan Segla. Wine has medium depth with nice cherry fruit, but more wood than I recall from prior bottles. Medium finish. One of my favorite producers! — 2 days ago

Bernard Magrez

Chateau Pape Clément Grand Cru Classé de Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

The first harvest at this estate was in 1252. Property owned by Bernard Magrez, a wine, art, culture and gastronomy patron Ruby with aromas of aromas of berry fruits and rich spices. On the palate cherry and blackberry flavors with cedar and earthy spices, well balanced. Fine firm tannins, long complex depth, ending with elegant fruit and slight mineral notes. Just starting to open up and will develop over next decade. — 7 days ago

Château Haut-Brion

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1961

From a gorgeous bottle with 4cm of ullage. Slow-ox'd for 3 hours, then gave it 45 min in a decanter, then back in the bottle for consumption and debauchery over 5 more hours. Reddish tawny with amber rims, translucent. Gorgeous nose from the get go. Notes of raspberry jam, cola, cool slate rock, gravel and tan spice. Silky, velvet glove in the mouth. Has some solid structure that balances the ton of fruit this wine still has. The impact of this wine is both its elegance and the energy in the background that makes each sip memorable. This bottle was even better than the year-ago birthday bottle, and tonight it eclipsed my previous favorite 61 Bordeaux of all time (the 61 Palmer). (Bday 9 of 13) — 8 days ago

Château de la Huste

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Color of deep purples, different shades, pretty dark, and a bit cloudy. Nose of cocoa, dark fruits, aldehyde, spice, powerful alcohol and acidity. Taste of refined soft tannins, thick and silky, refined sweet flavors, medicinal notes, and some berries. Aftertaste is medium long with some more warmth. Pretty good. — 4 days ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1967

Dark brown gold with a huge nose. Notes of tropical fruit including oranges and ripe citrus, toffee, apricots, crème brulee, stones and some amazing spice. In the mouth this expands as the dense fruit is able to roam about. While this is a fruit driven experience, there is still a ton of acidity there. This bottle was maybe a bit more advanced than some others we've had of this in the past, it still hit the bullseye and finished off the evening in style. (Bday 13 of 13) — 8 days ago
