Château Haut Litays

Gustave Lorentz

Alsace Gewürztraminer 1856

Vintage 2016 / we all recognise that it is sometimes a sidedish of a sauce that determines what to drink. For me it was a spicy quinces chutney that made I chose gewurztraminer, fresh, lychees in smell, wel balanced taste. / Paired with meatballs and quinces chutney, Munstercheese afterwards Wednesday Meatballsday (10) — 13 days ago

Wow! This comes right out of the gate fantastically. This is magical this early for 2010. 2010 is a great vintage but, built for elder years and children.

The nose reveals, slightly steeped, ripe & ruby fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, strawberries, blueberries, cooked pomegranates and cherries. Slight liqueur notes, toffee, caramel, mocha, melted chocolate, steeped fruit tea, vanilla, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, dry, crushed rocks, limestone, dark spices, soft leather, light fresh tobacco, dry stones, graphite, expresso roast, dark, rich soils, with candied, fragrant, bright, dark, red, blue florals set in violets.

The body is round, elegant and ruby beautiful. The tannins are; dark, tarry, spicy, rounded and chewy. The structure, tension, length and balance live up to every bit of hype the 2010 was given. Slightly steeped, ripe & ruby fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, strawberries, blueberries, cooked pomegranates and cherries. Slight liqueur notes, toffee, caramel, mocha, melted chocolate, steeped fruit tea, vanilla, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, dry, crushed rocks, limestone, deep dark spices with incredible palate heat, soft leather, light fresh tobacco, dry stones, graphite, expresso roast, dark, rich soils, with candied, fragrant, bright, dark, red, blue florals set in violets. The acidity is perfect. The seriously elegant finish is; ripe, slightly candied, brightly floral, polished and persists endlessly. Beautiful wine now and for the next 35 years.

Photos of; arial view of Chateau Haut-Bailly-fortunate to have spent two nights there, dinning room that I was fortunate to have dinner in, artful perspective of the Chateau and their brand glass doors that lead into their barrel room.

Nose of cassis, black plum, blackberry preserves, late-fall pine cone, cinnamon, clove / plush, ripe tannins with some red fruit showing through on the palate / powerful with a long finish—hard to believe that wines with this kind of self-assurance and structure can be had below $25 — 16 days ago

Château Lestage-Simon

Haut-Médoc 1999

Nice wine with aromas of mushrooms, forest floor and leather on the nose. Lots of red fruit in the mouth. Still good soft tannins. Great pairing with a steak. — 17 days ago
