Delicious 😋 simply fantastic. This Bordeaux from Saint Julien is balanced, elegant and spectacular at the age of 18, the nose is enchanting with notes of coffee, leather, tobacco, oak, cedar, cassis, earthy touch, graphite, chocolate, blackcurrant and pepper. The body is full, rich, multilayered, elegant with smooth tannins and lovely acidity. The finish is delicious and elegant. The wine is simply at its prime! My score 93, drink to 2022 but I wouldn’t wait. — 12 days ago

It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a yummy one from a great vintage in Bordeaux.
This is a very enjoyable Left Bank Bordeaux with some nice age.
Showing red and black fruits with earth, chocolates, tobacco leaf, light oak, vegetables, wet leaves, herbs and peppercorn.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.
Nice length on the finish with fine grained tannins and tart pomegranates.
This 24 year old is showing great complexity and mouthfeel at this point. Elegant and tasty.
Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and show some tannins.
Robert Parker 90 points.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc.
12.5% alcohol by volume.

Made by the same guys who operate Léoville Poyferré, they definitely know how to make a great blend. Their 2010 Grand Vin is perhaps my favourite Argentinean wine. It slightly lacks the depth and lushness of its bigger brother but it offers excellent value for the price. Notes of dark chocolate, coffee, cedar, oak, plum with hints of vanilla. Smooth acidity and tannins on the palate. Great Bordeaux style wine from Mendoza. — 2 years ago
Dusty, earthy nose of tea leaf, humidor, caramel-latte, leather and damp soil. The structured palate echoes the nose but also reveals cedar, graphite, beef blood and dark forest fruit. Tannines are wonderfully rounded and ripe. Medium to full-bodied, this is a gorgeous 95-leftbanker. 🤙🏻 — 20 days ago
