Drank 6/20/2021.
Happy Fathers Day!

Black cherry, earth, leather, and truffle on the nose. On the palate, red and black cherry, earth, leather, are accompanied by medium tannins that are well integrated at this point, but still quite present. Long finish goes on for over a minute.

3/21/8/4/5 +50 = 91 pts.

Château Grandis

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1997

9.1

So, the owner of K&L Wine Merchants - Clyde Beffa has made a living finding good 1997 Bordeaux’s after the fact in a difficult vintage. It is these kinds of buys ($17.99) that have keep me from opening other more prestigious wines too early in my early years of collecting. He still bats 1000.

If you always open your wines too early, let this be an opportunity to try wines on their longer evolution. You won’t be sorry.

Snap peas & zucchini from the garden this week.

Excellent with the rib covers steak.

You simply cannot equate a 9.1 24 years old Bordeaux to a 9.1 Bordeaux to a young one. The complexity, integration & nuances take precedent. Not a fair race.

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Just at its peak. Equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with just a touch of Cabernet Franc. Concentrated and dried cherry, blueberry and prune aromas with hints of mushroom, Forrest Floor and purple flowers. Same fruits on the pallet with a beautiful viscous texture and a touch of smoke on the finish. Dense and Full! What a treat! Thanks Kasey and Pete! — 13 hours ago

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Smoky weighty and lingering. Finish is shorter than it should be but still very good. More earthy than fruity but very solid. A bit underwhelmed vs my last bottle of this vintage. — 21 days ago

Chateau D'Hanteillan

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Classic HM. Cassis, smoke and fresh tobacco on the nose. Palate fills with pencil shaving, cigarboxes and blueberry & cranberry. Medium + finish. Still pretty young butting coming around nicely. Textbook basic Bordeaux ticking all boxes. — 16 days ago

Located on the terrace of alluvial gravel bordering the river. The "Village de La Lagune" was a tenant farm in its place and gradually transformed into a wine-growing estate. Dark purple with red fruits spice, cedar and flinty aromas. On the palate blackberry and cherry flavors with cedar, cacao, tobacco and leather notes. Fine sweet tannins, well balanced on long finish ending with fruit, spice and earthy mineral notes. Nice! — 3 days ago

Château Haut-Brion

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1961

Tasted blind. Dark reddish tawny color, almost opaque. Dense in the glass. Notes of cola, high-pitched fruit, wood, herbs, gravel and some barnyard. Rich in the mouth with ample fruit. Long, lasting finish. Silky is an understatement. So youthful and in such a great zone, this seems like it could last another 60 years. We all settle on a guess that this is the 61 HB which I served last year at my bday so we have a recent data point to use. (M's 60th bday 9th of 14) — a month ago
