Château Haut Pouchaud

Château Cantemerle

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Vintage 2009 | Classic Haut Medoc. Black colour 3/4 transparant. Autumn, leather, laurel in smell. Ripe summerfruit. Taste that has power, soft tannins, gets more velvety in the glass. Impressions of chocolate. Lovely. Paired with Guinea fowl, gnocchi, celeriac and truffle. — 12 days ago

Peter: I have some of this ‘09 in the cellar. From your review it would appear that it’s drinking very nicely at this stage. Do you see any maturing worth in keeping longer?

@Timothy Lynch Lucky you 😉 Absolutely à Point for me. But I do love more ripened wine. 09 should drink beautiful in the next decade.

Château Mille-Roses

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Easy drinking Bordeaux. Again left bank. Plenty of acidity that brought it out of balance for the first hour but mellowed and started to present vibrant blue berry, marionberry fruit with light, small grained tannins.

Château La Croix Margautot

Haut-Médoc Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

Straight out of the bottle it was decent, a little cherry, but mostly smooth. When I used the Ullo it was even better. Best was probably the second day after being open and half drank. The more it opened up the smoother and better it got. — 11 days ago

Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Dark rubi robe, nose of blackcurrant, top soil notes and hints of anise, pepper and asian spices. Medium bodied, tamed tanins and really good if not very complex. Great bottle now and no rush. We bought it for a song couple of years after it came out and is one of our best ROI in the cellar :) — a month ago
