Bernard Magrez

Chateau Pape Clément Grand Cru Classé de Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

An extensive history with this Pessac-Leognan estate. In 1305 Bertrand de Goth, a major landowner in Bordeaux as well as its Archbishop, became Pope Clement V and the city named this estate in his honour. From 1939 it was owned by the Montagne family, and passed by marriage into the ownership of Bernard Magrez. After a 20 minute decant, aromas of vanilla, raspberry, pepper, menthol - minty, dusty and aristocratic. “Damn good claret” as the old boys in Pall Mall would say! JH said more like the Medoc than Pessac-Leognan on the nose. The medium bodied palate has become more savoury and less fruit driven at 17 years but still works extremely well - seamless. 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the 1001 wines. — 10 days ago

Casa Magrez de Uruguay Cuvée d'Exception Tannat Blend 2016

Bernard Magrez ‘Casa Magrez de Uruguay’ 2016: Big. Bold. Beautiful. A complex & expressive wine with black fruits, plum, vanilla, leather, earth & oak notes. Medium acidity & tannins and a lovely smooth finish. Coming from the beautiful country of Uruguay, this wine is an elegant & graceful red blend of Tannat, Merlot & Cab Franc. A ready-to-drink, great value wine with an awesome flavor profile. Glad to be cellaring 2 additional bottles! Cheers🍷 — 14 days ago

Domaine Bernard Baudry

Les Grézeaux Chinon Cabernet Franc 2019

Baudry is one of those producers I think we'll regret we didn't buy more from back when he was affordable. Tip top Loire Cab Franc; elegant, not coddled. A dark side and some bite. Earthy, gravely, bloody, meaty. Site and soil specific and just look at that deep staining purple. Whiff of manure blows off. Leads with black pepper and cherry or strawberry fruit leather. Flavors favor peppery minerals folding nicely into tart chewy tannin. — 3 days ago

Bernard Burgaud

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2015

Nose is lilacs. A hint of integrated Brett. Maybe some blackberries

Palate is soft blackberry fruit. Some spice. Very good. Nicely fresh. Delicious. Not super complex or this would be higher.

Cuvée Le Berceau St. Joseph Syrah 2012

Serious brett at first. Like stanky stable. But… lo and behold, a truly beautiful wine emerges after a few hrs. So traditional but rustic in an elegant way that defies words. Round, herbal, complex and lovely. Drinking so well now. 9.4… 9.5? — 2 days ago

La Croix Boissée Chinon Blanc Chenin Blanc 2018

Pours clear gold. Tropical fruit, almonds on the nose. Fuller bodied, resinous. Medium plus acidity. Palate has more citrus, white peach and toasted nuts. Hint of vanilla. On the finish, more toasted nuts and mineral spice. Delicious and probably even better with age. — 15 days ago
