Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

Unfortunately we were not able to give this a proper decant this time. Nonetheless the quality and finesse still shines through. IMO the 2003 is just now entering it prime drinking window. Tannins have softened nicely. Good fruit integration. Still needs a bit of time in the glass to open. Over the course of an hour it was only getting better and better. Wish we had had time to do a 4-5 hr decant. — a day ago

Yeah buddy.

Château Haut-Brion

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1955

From a nice old-looking bottle that had a mid shoulder fill. Solid branded cork and seal. Dark tawny color, mostly translucent with clear rims. Soft delicate nose. Notes of dark berries, old cedar box, gravel, mocha and old saddle leather. In the mouth this comes across as a bit fruit-faded, no tannins. This bottle was past it's prime and fun to try, but I would hope there are better samples of it still out there to be had. — 15 days ago

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1989

Soft Sauvignon freshness with hints of grapefruit and something almost tropical. A lovely rounded middle with real complexity and a hint of sweetness. Very fresh and refined. And super long. — 6 days ago

Pessac-Léognan Cru Classe des Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Met up with @Kimberly Anderson and her hunky husband Chad at Proxi in Chicago and brought a few bottles. The La Mish was youthful but very open and broad knit. A wafting bouquet of crushed rock/violets, blue and black fruits and just an amazingly seamless, powerful, texturally vibrant wine. Had an amazing time with the Anderson’s and my Pop as well :) — 2 months ago
