It was nice to taste. Dense, youthful. The St Aubins are still relatively good value for the $ — 6 days ago

Saint-Romain Chardonnay 2016

Perfumed floral notes, greengage, lime. A sweet edge on the palate/ polished and rounded. Still young. Pretty but relatively simple. — 6 days ago

Good stuff

Château de Pez

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Wine purchased upon release back in grad school days. Cork broke while opening, but contents were intact and glorious. Superbly integrated and mellow tannin structure is still there. Thanks, Jin-Ook! — 3 days ago

Love Morel’s reds. Brambly, bright, red-fruited nose. Lovely spice. Very pungent. Palate is bright and juicy with wonderful acidity and freshness. Dazzlingly pure and fresh with huge red fruits and a wonderful hint of rusticity. Lovely earth and spice perfume develops after a while. Wow. Still has many years ahead of it. — 10 days ago

Cave de Roquebrun

Sir de Roc Brun Saint-Chinian Red Rhone Blend 2013

second wine from the same winery in st chinian which is a part of Languedoc-Roussillon wine region.
the first one was newer (2016) and felt too oaky.

60% mourvedre
20% grenache
20% syrah

14% ABV

dense brownish red 👀

wet soil, leather, tobbaco, oak related spices and hinted blackberies. and some 🍄👃

medium plus body.
high acidity.

tart attack first.
then a chewy spicy candy with hints of fruit👄

long 🎯 with the dirt taste lingering and then switched by firm but light tannins drying things up in a pleasent way.

excelent vfm (75 nis but in france)

had it for three days.

first day it shined with heavily umamied vegan 'bolognese' and pasta (based on mushroom variety and black lentils).

second day it got fruitier with not 100% traditionly made arancini.

third day had it on it's own.

it stayed the same wine throughout those days.
was always better when poured with an aerator pourer.

I'm wondering if it was a better wine than the other newer wine, or if it is time that balanced it.

the conclusion is clear:
i need to visit my friend in 🇫🇷 and drink some more.

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

PnP. If I was tasting blind I would have said 8 year old California cab. Ripe and robust on both the nose and in the mouth. However this was restrained in the context of the vintage. Overt fruitiness but none of the over the top ripeness that characterizes this vintage . Despite the extracted fruit the acidity kept this beautifully balanced. Very smooth and round. No signs of age and would not open another bottle for 10 years plus.
A wine still in its infancy..

Clos du Meix Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Chardonnay 2017

Another Wednesday Wine Committee in the books. Great hosting by @Bill Makens . 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine all served blind.

This started a flight of 3 2017 vintage Chardonnays. Obviously young, this was the most finesse driven. It was bordering on light bodied. Tiny trace of oak. Honeysuckle, and powdered lemon tart with some creaminess to it. I called this burgundy but was unsure of where to place it.

A few days late in posting the Wednesday Wine Committee wines. Standard format with 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind.

Enjoyable and drank younger than its age. I always get a cherry swisher sweets note with St Estephe wines. Very tart black cherries, currant, tart plum and herbs all over this wine. Tannins still holding up nicely. Not getting better, but will probably hold for a bit. I guessed mid-‘90s left bank Bordeaux.

@Shay A thanks for the reference point. I find the same with Cos drinks younger than its age.

Château Grand-Pontet

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Had the 2009 recently and loved it...
Red color, medium+ bodied. On the nose lots of spices... licorice, white pepper. Silky round ball in my mouth, licorice persists, medium+ tannins, and a tad hot on the swallow. I'm thinking this is a spectacular buy right now.
