Château Clos Haut Peyraguey

Gustave Lorentz

Alsace Gewürztraminer

Vintage 2016 / Reliable producer makes a crisp and fine Gewürztraminer. Lychees in smell and taste. Sweet touch that makes the taste lively. @Willem Jan Withagen showed me to drink and appreciate more Gewürztraminer. Paired this with melon and ham, zucchini, shrimps in homemade tomatosauce and blue d’auvergne. All went well. — 14 days ago

Château d'Agassac

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Halfway between Bordeaux and Margaux lies this fairytale castle that produces this wine with around 50:50 CS/Merl. It is dense and dark in color, dark mulberry, black currants, oak, hints of leather, forest and mushrooms, and some volatility on the nose; rich full black fruits dominate the taste and is accompanied by high acids, dry fine tannins and a long finish with liquorice and chocolate. The wine feels like 14-14.5 % in alcohol but is listed as 13. Great value at 24 USD. — 6 days ago

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

Cork disintegrated but the wine was remarkably pure and fresh. Purple color, gorgeous fresh aromas of leather, plum, licorice, graphite, with matching flavor profile. 1986 vintage!!! — 10 days ago

Cuvée Jean Gautreau Sociando-Mallet Haut-Medoc 2014

One of my favorite producers in all of Bordeaux, particularly when value enters the discussion. Dollar for delivered pleasure, this has few peers and yet, has the proven history to age gracefully for 30+ years. Dark fruits, cassis, tobacco, espresso, baking spices, earth. Finish is long and delicious. Tannins are still quite firm at this stage. Recommend an extended decant if possible. — 10 days ago

Very enjoyable Wednesday Wine Committee lunch today with @Weston Eidson & @Colby Siratt hosting. Same format as always...1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine all tasted blind.

This was plush and dense while also being very youthful and gripping. Dark fruit dominant. Black Forest cake, dark cocoa dusted dates, roasted plum and a touch of saddle leather. I called this left bank 2012 vintage.

Château Lanessan

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Good. Had decent fruit and a bit of structure upon popping the cork bit became a bit flat and one-dimensional after 30 minutes of air. — 9 days ago
