So what a difference time can make - this is young and powerful and bold and big red fruit - still young - but decanted for two hours and bam wham big time good - I love the integration of the 57% merlot and 43% cab franc - thank you Phillipe Melka for such a wonderful mastered crafted wine - bravo and deep smiles — 2 days ago

Domaine Jean Tardy et Fils

Au Bas de Combe Vieilles Vignes Nuits St. Georges Pinot Noir 2014

Captures the gist of northern NSG without a hefty price point. Tardy’s 80 year old vine in the lieu dit do not hurt either. Silken tannin, pure and lovely black cherry fruit, hints of the exotic like licorice root and stat anise, plenty of forest notes like sous bois, damp fern, and cedar. I think they matched the cooperage well here, its supportive of this more compact and acid driven vintage. Over a couple days it has held well and been pleasurable. — 8 days ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

A well reviewed vintage after several poor years.

1.5 hour decant (some chunky sediment). A thrilling dark ruby red with little bricking. On the nose: green veggie, eucalyptus, earth, smoke, plum, and a little of that aged Bordeaux sweetness thrown in there too. Taste: leather, cedar, little raspberry, and gravel. Low acidity, a medium graphite finish with some slightly bitter tannins.

Lean and mean....where's the elegance and character???..........drink em if you got em, don't think more age will help. Careful with Bordeaux 95....from my experience, don't believe some have aged well. My last 95 is a Margaux and I am going to pop in a hurry.

Chateau St. Jean

Cinq Cépages Sonoma County Red Blend 2010

Quarantine treat! Wasn’t expecting this to be as good as it is.

Full force.

Resolved tannins and still mouth coating, fresh ripe red berries. Touch of acidity, little sense of oak, perfectly in balance.

No idea when or where I got it but man I want more.

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

I thought I would open another LLC tonight. The 86 is one of my favorite drinking vintages. This was classic & old school that has a burly, muscular style & is starting to enter its drinking window with many years ahead displaying black fruits, cassis, graphite, iron, leather, forest floor, brown spices & tobacco. This btl was in perfect shape showing how monumental this wine can be. — 3 days ago
