Beautiful. Tobacco, wet leaves, soil, black spice and mint. Evolved to be much better than expected. One of the better 1999. — 24 days ago

Le Clarence de Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

The cork broke so we had to decant this 2008 twice through a coffee filter. Well worth the effort. Nose of old forest floor, ripe blueberries, leather, baked cherries and plum. — a month ago

Château Larrivet Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Stewed red fruit, mocha, a little green pepper/ beany quality. Savory (the herb), and bay on the nose. Broad, muscular, but not over extracted, and with decent acid, if not bursting with energy. A fine claret- looking forward to another bottle in 5-10 years. — a month ago

Château Laville Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1983

Great fun. Probably not its most expressive vintage (nose fascinating but restrained) but palate nonetheless oily, lanolin, burnt orange character. Great length. — a month ago

Pessac-Léognan Cru Classe des Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

A dark inky purple garnet color. Floral and blackberry scents immediately delight with some notes of anise chocolate-cream brûlée and lingering mint—a beautiful nose! Full of flavor and an elegant rich structure. A dark cherry fruit sweetness hits the pallet, but then the charcoal, cedar-wood and cocoa notes lead to a dry pepper spice finish. The firm tannins definitely makes this wine needing more age so the flavors develop and integrate with the tannins. Brought back memories of our visit to Bordeaux in 2012 where we had the privilege to drink this vintage straight from the barrel. What a treat! Looking forward to see how this wine opens up throughput the evening. — a month ago

Pessac-Léognan White Bordeaux Blend 2009

Too young to enjoy. My fault for being tempted to open it early. Getting punched in the face with intensity, despite 3-4 hours of decanting. Give it another 10 years — a month ago
